Artist and visionary Dylan Tauber has been making music for well over two decades, his most recent release being the aptly named ‘Sounds From Space’
His 12th album to date, the album features 15 new tracks, some featuring the vocal talent of Enlia and Francessca Belisario. The opening track, ’11:18:16’, sets an eerie yet elegant vibe, with an almost oceanic quality. Incredibly cinematic by nature, it perfectly sets the stage for what is to come from the rest of the album.
‘Carmen Song’ is one of the tracks that stands out most from the album, which was written for Dylan’s girlfriend, Carmen. Dylan says that the entire album was inspired by her, but this track especially exudes a certain passion that is reminiscent of the feelings surrounding any budding romance.
Following the Carmen theme, ‘He Loves Carmen’ is another standout. Taking some of the same sounds from ‘Carmen Song’ but in a much more accessible format. With the edition of Francessca Belisario’s vocals, this track carries the same emotive quality of ‘Carmen Song’ but is much more suited for the dancefloor.
‘Take Me to Space’ is another favourite, showcasing a much more energetic and upbeat side of Dylan Tauber. Again with the suave vocals of Francessca Belisario, the track has a slight oriental flair on the production side that creates a really unique dynamic. ‘Take Me to Space’ is chocked full of charisma, and a true testament to the producer’s varied strengths.
Overall, the album is an eclectic mix of cutting edge electronica that definitely suits the name ‘Sounds from Space’.
