Rocketing into the global house scene on a full tank of cosmic, bass-driven euphoria; Divestorm drops his latest EP. Atmospheric, suspenseful and genuinely epic — the three track floor-filler, “Aurora Borealis”, causes cataclysmic damage to the genres well formed boundaries. A deconstruction well overdue.
Opening track “Aurora Borealis” is the calm before the storm. A soft, pounding house rhythm creeps through the stratosphere. It’s a tense thrill-ride from start to finish, as the talented producer from Belgium takes us from planet to planet — using his hypnotising synth lines to set the tone.
Linking into the next track with the fluidness of a Pink Floyd record; “Gravity” takes us on an uncertain journey through gloomy, mechanical soundscapes unheard of in this universe. The venomous synth lines tear through the soundscape void and ripple shivers through the listeners spine. Bass rumbles and shakes throughout your bones into unending euphoric bliss.
Final track Odyssée brings us back down to earth for a moment with another steady thumping rhythm. It doesn’t last for long though. The song takes on a life of its own and begins breaking free from it’s genre box and becoming something else entirely. Thrusting us up into a godly crescendo, as heavenly synths bask listeners back into a calm. The record ends how it started. Calm, suspenseful and with us begging for more.
