Cur$es - Solar Temple
The best thing about running this website is that you never know who will get in touch and what refreshing new music you might be exposed to. Earlier this week we were contacted by a producer by the name of Cur$es who invited us to have a listen to his debut album, ‘Solar Temple’. As is usually the case at the moment we were pleasantly surprised by what we found, with yet another promising producer to add to our growing list of Glasgow-based up and comers.
With nine tracks spread over roughly 18 minutes we were at first expecting some type of frenetic, hyper-glitch affair, but as soon as opening track SATAN kicked in with a swirling vortex of gouging bass and cosmically charged synths we knew this was going to be an interesting and well considered journey. As Cur$es aka Niall Morris states in his press blurb “there is more focus on dark textures and sub bass then fannying about”. This is no disjointed experiment; it’s a soundscape of dizzying highs and disturbing lows, mapped out emotion and soaring passion. Each track may have its own identity, but when listened to in succession, you find yourself immersed in its hypnotic allure, gripped from start to finish. We daren’t slap it with some pointless genre or label, but with a similar aesthetic being used by the likes of Peace, The Illest and Arm Wtchs Fngrs, there is undoubtedly something exciting stirring in the laptops of Glasgow’s newest generation of producers.
