Tritonal’s third studio album is a sonically beautiful masterpiece
Tritonal to donate proceeds from their U & Me merchandise to the National Alliance for Mental Illness
Austin-based progressive house icons Tritonal have been at the forefront of the global dance music world for a decade. But 2019 is poised to be their best year yet with the release of their third studio album, U & Me.
The album is a refreshing 19 track masterpiece from the duo. The high energy electro-infused tracks are reminiscent of the golden era of progressive house, of which Tritonal first exploded into. Each song is a feel-good listen, and many feature impressive collaborations with vocalists including Rachel Platten, Mozella, RYANN, Evalyn, Lourdiz and more.
U & Me is another significant release on Tritonal’s label Enhanced Music, an imprint they have owned and operated for 10 years. The impetus behind the full effort is a beautifully stirring and overtly consciousness-raising feat.
“U & ME – is a very simple pointer towards Unity & Love that we feel is inherent in life itself,” says Tritonal of the album. “Ultimately, we are all connected – in fact everything in the Universe is connected. Music allows us to express that connection through sound. There is so much inherent divisiveness in our culture today and we wanted to flip the “you vs me” or the “us vs them” dialogue on its head. “My Country”, “My Team”, “My Race”, “My Beliefs”, “My Social Group” – they all are ideologies people identify with to enhance their false sense of self and can be divisive instead of unifying. Through them, people make themselves “right” and others “wrong” and define their identity through their enemies, the “others”, the “non-believers” or “wrong believers”. This identification leads to suffering. Hopefully, our music can act as a light that shines upon one simple truth – Love.”
In an effort to support a cause near and dear to them, Tritonal has partnered with the National Alliance for Mental Illness, and will be donating a percentage of their U & Me merchandise proceeds to help raise awareness for mental health within music. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
