Skytree :: Crystal Consciousness (Skytree Music)

Stopping at every constellation and gaining momentum, this album doesn’t adhere to any linear formula and instead offers its listeners fractals of light reflecting kaleidoscopic colors. Steering through (and over) a myriad of styles, Skytree refines his musical signature throughout these thirteen tracks.

[Release page] Over several years of developing an expansive root system, Skytree has seamlessly transitioned from curious electronic experimenter to full-blown celestial sound architect. Blending live instrumentation, atmospherics, bass, voice and organic ingredients, Crystal Consciousness forges a pathway through an abundance of reshaped genres.

Clipped hip-hop, dubstep, glitch and strains of chilled beats melt in unison above textured rhythms. Each audio morsel is painstakingly crafted to express hundreds of uniquely detailed dynamics. These shadows of frequency-drenched signal processes subliminally unfold to reveal disassembled melodies and vocal extracts — the overarching theme — rolling over undulating bass and disjointed samples. Over repeat listens, the surplus of actual sounds and (subtle) voices continually expel new snapshots of nostalgia; it’s a surreal voyage to say the least.

Crystal Consciousness, put quite simply, is a proverbial smorgasbord of electrical excursions. Stopping at every constellation and gaining momentum, this album doesn’t adhere to any linear formula and instead offers its listeners fractals of light reflecting kaleidoscopic colors. Steering through (and over) a myriad of styles, Skytree refines his musical signature throughout these thirteen tracks. Fans of Deru, Cuttooth and Kloudbreak will ease into this stream of consciousness without fail.
