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.
Ambient and soundscape producers aren’t exactly hard to find these days with soundcloud making it possible for anyone with a music program to put together a collage of washing synths and upload it. Monster Rally’s music isn’t going to get lost in that wave of minimally meditative music. ’Jaguar’ is lush, rich in texture and definitely gorgeously distinctive. It sounds like what I hope a wedding ceremony on the beaches of India might sound like or maybe the tune that is stuck in the Dahli Lama’s head all day. Naturally, the music is actually coming from an incredibly talented producer based in Ohio. ’Jaguar’ is our first taste of Monster Rally’s upcoming Beyond the Sea which is set to be a stunner.
