Greek virtuoso Terry Da Libra has emerged as a trance & progressive leader in our roster, thanks to half a decade of indelibly poignant compositions, not to mention his consistently inspired DJ sets on our flagship radio show, "Silk Music Showcase." As he continues to refine his craft, the industry elite have taken notice: Terry witnessed a tremendous amount of international DJ support in 2015, courtesy of hits like "Onirikon" and "Orama." He looks forward to building upon this momentum via his profoundly moving new two-track EP "Anagenesis," one of his finest offerings to date.
A peak-hour, adrenalin-fueled groove explodes out of the gate, in the early going of "Anagenesis." Teaser vocals and a hypnotic arp line create dizzying suspense, as the track crescendoes toward the main break. During the song's unforgettable emotional climax, a gorgeous piano solo emerges, soon coupled with a haunting, yet exceedingly beautiful "tribal" vocal. Finally, the full lead theme crystallizes in the triumphant drop.
Terry's modern take on trance is also beautifully expressed in the subsequent track, "Epiphany," which is as memorable as the title cut. Playful bass layers and arpeggios weave together mellifluously in the opening build. An epic main break once again awaits us and, upon its arrival, fully envelopes the listener in aural bliss. Specifically, ethereal vocal stabs and euphonious piano chords highlight a sweeping arrangement, which culminates in a rapturous drop.
I’ve been following Gregory’s work for some time and the new album is just a pure melancholic pleasure. One of the best Silk Music acts for sure. If you’re a seeker of emotive clever dance music get this one! Love. Cherubian
