Aeon Waves :: Mute Angel EP (Mindtrick)

A brisk and beautiful exploration through sound, vision, and voices that is well worth the trip.

This four track by India-based Aeon Waves has been in constant rotation, its mesmerizing swirl of ambient downtempo dub, and subconscious voices is almost too emotional to take in one sitting. Like drifting into the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, soft sonic shapes are driven by an organic fluid. “No Future No Past” casually grows with subdued Dean Can Dance flutter, only to be overtaken by crisp (almost tribal) dubstep beatwork. Elsewhere you’ll find lost port-royal inspired sonic progressions on “Back to Reality,” a breathtaking foray through time. The aptly titled “Mute Angel” dips into similar terrain, a muted rhythm breaks apart only to be recollected into an inspired, heart drenching musical portrait. If “Between The Lines” doesn’t tug at all that can be discovered in life and the subtle intricacies found on the circular cosmic spot we inhabit, then there’s not much else that will. A brisk and beautiful exploration through sound, vision, and voices that is well worth the trip.

Mute Angel is available on Mindtrick. Artwork by Mimi Hellyeah.
