Ever walked down a city street late at night, stepped into a phone booth, and accidentally discovered a portal to a jungle world, crowded with lasers and lights? If not, that’s what listening to AHEE‘s latest EP, Spellbound, conjures up. Out now on the illustrious Gravitas Recordings, the five-track space bass project combines old school music with modern production to produce jungle vibes in a city warehouse.
Throughout five adventurous tracks, Spellbound offers a journey through uncharted realms of electronic music, merging classic rave sounds with hypnotic tribal elements to create an immersive experience for all. Dropped onto the middle of a modern warehouse dancefloor, listeners groove out alongside the “iLLest Alien” through a course of dynamic house frequencies. Nature’s tranquil noises soon launch “Spellbound” into a jungle of ethnic instrumentation that becomes immersed within the space bass environment.
After finding your way back to the main dancefloor, AHEE and Dan Konopka greet you to “Late Night Beats” that provide experimental, energetic breakbeats. Leaving the event, listeners are treated to an “Alien Popsicle,” which tantalize tastebuds with a fast-pace and tense rave buildup into a gratifying Big Beat drop. Once the popsicle nears completion, unknown forces interfere and cause it to burst, resulting in a didgeridoo that transfers you back to the phone booth completely “Splattermouth”-ed.
