I’m a recent convert to the fan-base of electronic vibe maker Monster Rally and that decision is turning out to be one of the better ones of mine. ‘Honey’ floats along with the same enlightened vibe that made his track ‘Jaguar’ so entrancing. I’ve always been against resorting to describing music as the kind of tune to “turn off your mind to and drift far away to the cosmic dimension of higher musical bliss”, however, ‘Honey’ is doing just that. There’s no drop and you probably won’t feel the need to raise your fist to this. Just let those cool, cool vibes massage your eardrums and ease you into unlocking the 6th dimension of inner peace.
The beat music scene is a male dominated world so the most immediate thing that will probably stand-out to anyone about Astronautica is that she is a she. While as a gimmick that is all good and fine, Edrina Martinez doesn’t rely on her femininity to make her music stand-out in the crowded scene. Astronautica lands on the chiller side of the beat spectrum, however, that does not mean her beats are lazily composed. Tracks like ‘Weekend’ and ‘somethingaboutyou’ show off some serious composition talent from Astronautica. Her material keeps getting better so I can’t wait to hear how her sounds continues to evolve. Check out more music at her bandcamp and soundcloud and stream ‘somethingaboutyou’ below…
