Following the genre-bending EP "The State I'm In," eleven.five triumphantly returns to our imprint with a glorious, peak-hour three-track offering, including the title cut, "Ode To The Rising Sun," a collaboration with trance & progressive maestro Andromedha. The result is a meditative and ultimately thrilling opus, rife with synth-laden progressions.
The rapturous "To Mean It" launches the release with vibrant, yet steady synths, creating a cosmic pull, while a heavy bassline gives structure to the shapeless swirl of blissful melodies. The track is brought back down to earth with a contemplative breakdown, showcasing elegant piano strokes before returning to its atmospheric groove once more.
Hypnotic, trance-influenced pads help create a celestial soundscape in the early going of the peak-hour anthem "Ode To The Rising Sun," with synth keys scattered in the background like distant stars. A side-chained, full-bodied bassline offers a powerful momentum to the groove as well. When the listener ultimately reaches the memorable breakdown, the arrangement succeeds in evoking the pensive moments just before sunrise, as we pause to ponder the future ahead.
