Greek record label Into The Light tread international waters, emerging with a superbly dreamy and introspective LP from Warsaw-based producers Sasha Zakrevska (Poly Chain) and Bartosz Kruczyński, AKA Earth Trax. Building upon common themes present in both the label’s and artist’s previous work the duo delve even further, exploring the more ethereal hues of ambient.
Taking you on a six-minute journey into paradisal territory, the aptly titled ‘Quietism’ sonically brings to mind visions of floating above a sea of clouds before gently descending low enough to see a stark view of humanity and life below. Sustained keys melt into reverb-heavy jabs as a wall of swirling, panning synth and string lines begin to build and glide throughout. Perhaps the release’s most tender moment, it highlights the human element behind the production and the power of two artists spending hours and hours together, collaborating to craft a body of work void of over-instrumentation, distractions or limits.
