Boomkat Product Review:
Convincing psychedelic cosmic electro workouts from London-based Italian producer Sohrab. Trippy!
"Voyria" is Sohrab's debut full-length, and expands on the ideas he explored on his last handful of releases. And while early tracks like 'Dualism' and 'Materialism' wrong-foot us at first, coaxing us into a sense of dancefloor security, hoovering up electro and breaks templates respectively, the album quickly establishes itself in tripper's corner. 'Fleeting Thoughts' is primed for early hours self-discovery, with hand drums and pads playing off each other and flickering aural squiggles dancing around robotic semi-audible voices - basically great material for exciting the brain as it sluices out blocked pathways.
'Sunseeker' is even more lysergic, slowing the early album's electroid pulse to a chuggy shuffle and lavishing it with chiming psy-trance pings and disorienting whispers - basically material you'd hope to hear while half-awake as the sun rises in a field somewhere in Italy. If you're into Vladimir Ivkovic's pitch-wonked psy excavations, or Daniele Baldelli's mushroom-friendly cosmic disco variations, this one's worth a punt.
