Solarstone & Orkidea – Slowmotion V

Your next singles engagement with ‘3’ – Solarstone’s most recent long-player – comes (title-wise at least) in an agreeably familiar form. Brothers-in-musical-arms Solarstone & Orkidea deliver an exceptional fifth entry to ‘Slowmotion,’ their episodic co-production canon. A decade since the first, ‘V’ again represents the perfect dichotomy between the two artists’ respective sonics.

The fifth ‘Slowmotion’ is an exercise in sonic texture and contrast, albeit an Olympic scale. Matching one atypically ear-catching element against another, the duo assemble a musical tapestry that once heard will never be forgotten.

To this end Richard and Tapio play strikingly Deep Dish-y stabs off against lighter-touch synths, while its ass-shakin’ space-bass bounces atop its prog-cruise pace. Its build is measured, but once locked into its groove is unstoppable. When the pair finally lift the curtain on its esoteric, beamed-from-the-heavens lead line, ‘Slowmotion V’ summons atmospheres like no other.

Boundary pushing in nature, outright epic in feel, with Solarstone & Orkidea’s fifth ‘Slowmotion’ arrives today (
