We’ve been following Astrological from the get go here on WIB, and I can honestely say, that this brother gets better with each release….if you like his previous offerings, you going to love “Polynesian Dream”, 8 tracks deeep, with a real sense of soulfulness to it.
Polynesian Dream is a mix of lush layered samples and live instruments that marks the third instrumental release from the talented Canadian producer AstroLogical, while illustrating his advancement from his preceding albums Living Fossils and Far Far Away.
Unlike many current cut and paste styles common in the hip hop inspired instrumental landscape, AstroLogical uses his formal training to show a musical sense of melody and progression.
Elements of hip hop, jazz and ambient styles meet in dreamy grooves creating a loungy feel. Tracks are filled with Rhodes, thick bass lines and the use of his own vocals resulting in a distinct polished sound that AstroLogical can call his own.
Continuing with a steady pace of releases Polynesian Dream is the first of 2 EPs with the second, Flux EP, due out November 2011
