Boomkat Product Review:
dBridge presents his first album in 10 years on sophomore LP ‘A Love I Can’t Explain’, radically prioritising slow, oblique, and super minimal arrangements to offer a fresh new perspective on his sound
Threaded with guest contributions by Kid Drama, Alia Freco, Lewis James, They Live, and Poison Arrow, the 12 tracks album feels more elemental, organic than previous dBridge records, swapping out romantic lust or raving spirit for a more vulnerable, introspective and personal set of expressions. You get the feeling that he’s not trying to make you bruk out or lose your shit, but rather to meditate on bass weight and reflect on a more subtle set of emotive cues.
“The ten-year gap between solo albums has seen dBridge releasing landmark collaborations and projects as part of the Autonomic movement, Module Eight, Heart Drive and exploring other Bpms as Velvit.
dBridge's journey within electronic music has seen him at the front and center of electronic music culture and then by design, as the seasons change, he has retreated to his own world to work on his next statement.
A Love I Can't Explain is the sound of dBridge making music for himself. As a man he finds himself in a new phase of his life- in love, married and a father that is no longer concerned with previous constraints and this has led to a new freedom in creation. An artist looking at the same sculpture but now from a new perspective.”
