Album: Anchorsong – Ceremonial

Since delivering his debut album, Chapters, on Tru Thoughts back in 2011, Anchorsong has become renowned for creating beautiful, deep and picturesque electronic music using only an MPC-2500 and a keyboard. Here, he finally delivers a follow-up, and it’s every bit as beguiling as its’ predecessor. While there are plenty of moments of fluid, eyes-shut beauty – see “Eve”, “Oriental Suite”, “Butterflies” and the outstanding “Monsoon” – the Japanese producer wisely chooses to mix things up a little. Thus, you’ll also find crunchy beats (“Expo”), bass-heavy, steel drums-laden groovers (“Rendezvous”), and humid, tropical workouts (“Last Feast”). Throughout, his dedication to mood and melody remains in tact. Listen below.
