With the marvelously captivating, quietly invigorating “journey,” bland crafts an image of escapism with an immediately irresistible groove of catchy rhythms and looping bass.
“journey” introduces the producer’s old-school-like approach on a gently memorable high, delivering a single rise and fall progression that persists throughout the gradually changing energy and layers of the four-minute thirty-eight piece for that initially engrossing quality.
Throughout this nearly five-minute instrumental, composer and producer bland exhibits equal parts of passion and accuracy with catchy music elements of organic finger picking and electronic fragments.
The tune develops and builds, not yielding to expectation but displaying a feeling of building anticipation and voyage throughout. The complete “journey” venture expands on this strategy, blending subtle subtleties with hits of pure drama, emotion, and adrenaline.
The music exhibits bland work in a pleasant way, with a little humble yet recognized thread and rhythm. The beat is self-contained yet ready and waiting for a rider – a rhyming verse of escalating emotion and intensity – it is effective as its own atmosphere but with the strong potential for artist collaboration.
The organic drum-line comes in waves. The music peaks and fades in pitch. As we dig deeper into this tint, vibe, and arena of thought, instances of richness, rhythm, and energy contrast with those that appear pared back to the essential elements; a few notes, a touch of melody, and ideas.
“journey,” which is beautifully in sync with the hope and promise of tomorrow or the dawn of a fresh morning, solidifies bland’s place inside a precise, comprehensive, modern sound design.
