Floestait This is pure flow state music - the kind that doesn't distract yet cuts away at the frustration of whatever it is you're working on

Fran Ko The entire album is Divine, but Tree.Some guided me directly to the experience of the Absolute Favorite track: Tree.Some.

Dotflac [Pollen] evokes to me the soundtrack of a night walk through a futuristic city.

Urbanism, technology, machines making sounds and communicating through signals we couldn't understand alone but making sense altogether.

You'll finish your walk surrounded by water, reminding you that the composer is still human, bound to nature ; but this album is definitely oriented towards the future.

Filled with details, consistent and entertaining, [Pollen] is an other great notch to Aes Dana's discography. Favorite track: A carmine day.

about

French composer Vincent Villuis aka AES Dana follows up on his highly acclaimed [ Perimeters ] album released in 2011 with a vibrant and powerful opus titled [ Pollen ] which presents 10 tracks fusing IDM / Downtempo, Deep Tech and Progressive Trance.
A cinematic album which offers new perceptions of the work of the composer who weaved symphonic pads into deep bass grooves and haunting themes while bringing out a certain melancholia brushed by stratified rhythms.

Passionate about the concept of pollination and how it transposes with music, sounds, technology and humanity, the artist recorded and gathered moments of his life as he walked through cities, fields, seaside and airports. Back in the studio, he introduced these field recordings in his electronic compositions to yield tracks that are eclectic yet retain a common essence.
In this configuration, man and machine are both pollinators and pollenizers; music is the pollen.
