V/A :: 15 Shades of White (Dronarivm)

This compilation work gathers a bunch of well-known artists who can be considered as emerging leaders of relaxed cinematic instrumental dream-pop musical excursions. A pleasant listening experience that will ravish fans of the artists mentioned from above and more.

Dronarivm is a relatively new label located in Moscow, Russia but which rapidly gained an incredibly huge reputation in the world of microsonic drone based ambient and contemporary minimalist musical styles. Today the label is on the way to eclipse a lot of initiatives from other independent labels due to its omnipresence on networks and due to the efforts made on a very offensive promotional side.

Their catalogue is highlighted by the works of Machinefabriek, Aaron Martin, Christoph Berg, Pleq and Celer to name a few. This compilation work gathers a bunch of well-known artists who can be considered as emerging leaders of relaxed cinematic instrumental dream-pop musical excursions. Consequently the track listing is largely devoted to delicate and confidential micro-tonal ambient music with a taste for dreamily introspective acoustic patterns.

15 Shades of White features the contribution of Dronarivm’s artists but also the presence of others such as Jacaszek, Olan Mill, Marsen Jules (et al) and a handful of others notorious representative figures of the genre. In a closer view the musical exploration offers fragile modern classical consonant minimalism with “furniture music” detached piano variations from Anne Chris Bakker, Sophie Hutchings, resonant piano perpetuum of Tobias Hellkvist, organic inflected cello soundscapes of Aaron Marin & Christopher Berg, Zvuku, and ambivalent autumnal inter-textual melancholia of Olan Mill. Orla Wren offers crystal semi-acoustic /glitch electronic while mantra-like enveloping atonalities appear via The Frozen Vault—the whole thing floating on a vast and vaporous ocean of continuous sound waves. A pleasant listening experience that will ravish fans of the artists mentioned from above and more.

15 Shades of White is available on Dronarivm.
