Deeply melodic, reassuringly otherworldly, incredibly sensual, Cytarra checks off all imaginable aspects of a mesmerizing Deep House tune. Erasing all boundaries between any specific genres, but proudly calling itself House music, it is a true gem of a track, that is universally appealing and reinvigorating to the most seasoned listener of electronic music and anyone skeptical of how unique and beautiful House can be.
Starting off not too far off from a flamenco ballad the tune quickly grows into a living breathing thing in the class of it's own introducing breathtaking elements one after the other and blossoming into a picturesque affair while simultaneously going deeper into the melancholic reflection.
The instruments seamlessly morph into every wild variation of them, managing to both keep it fresh and recognizable with established riffs. The interplay of frequencies and characters are on full display here accomplishing an astonishing journey throughout track's runtime fluctuating in density, energy and mood.
It is often a bane of 4/4 music to become a slave of it's structure and having a hard time graduating from it's loop-based shackles, however creative. It's tracks like this one that remind me of the fully mature, introspective and creative side of House that is ever present, if rare, and makes me a revived believer in the future of music every single time
What is Tune of the Day?
Something that I do for my rising revelations series is search for new music daily. So it is only natural that I should be sharing some of the daily highlights as too often the tracks are amazing but they don't make it into a final episode as they might not fit that week's mood or concept.
More than anything, the reasoning behind the series was always sharing new exciting music by artists that are longing to be heard so any extra exposure is a good thing.
