A very inspirational EP. These songs got me reminiscing road trips to the beach 30 minutes away, and overall good for the soul. I'm happy to have found LTN!
Favorite track: Wondering Soul.
It's always an exciting moment when we receive music from label veteran LTN. He has been a consistent contributor to the label and has shown no signs of slowing down. This EP features three beautifully engaging progressive house tracks that perfectly represent the renowned musicality and emotional depth of LTN's music.
The title cut, "As Tears Go By," opens up with elegant vocal hums and soft arpeggiated plucks that lull us into a calming state of tranquility. Ambience fills our heads halfway into the track, coupling itself with pristine piano keys, in front of an ever-growing chord progression. The array of timbre synchronizes as the momentum of the track builds, encapsulating the majestic sound of LTN, with which we've all fallen in love over the years.
"Wondering Soul" cascades us into a mesmerizing depth of melodic bass, while also tugging at our core. We have no choice but to accept the deep, inducing tide and follow its flow into the warm unknown. Submerged basslines glide across each other, creating a melody that organically grows around us, while calmly relinquishing any fear or doubt of where we're headed in life.
"Serene Land" embodies a rather uplifting progressive house persona to close out LTN's EP. Delayed plucks and energetic piano chords are met with textures of bass synths and drawn out vocal callings. Shortly after the breakdown, LTN melodically builds the track, reintroducing each layer until eventually dropping us back into a seductive exhibit of melodic syncopation and groove.
