Da'Vinci

Stardust

Review by Gary Hill

This four-track EP is electronic and experimental. A lot of times I land music like that under progressive rock, but I don't think it fits with this set. The music here is largely soulful and EDM based. It's all instrumental. It is also intriguing and largely effective.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 6. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2020.

Track by Track Review
Thisside
Trippy electronics open the set with this soulful electronic groove. A short instrumental piece, this has a pop meets EDM groove, and is just over a minute-and-a-half long.
Heatnup
There is a weird, tweaked kind of vibe to this. It has a lot of that soulful groove along with some jazzy textures. There is a sampled vocal that's altered almost to the point of being unrecognizable as a voice. It feels more like an instrument. This one is also less than two-minutes long.
Skyhai
Another trippy soulful electronic groove, the concept remains pretty much the same from the previous number. It's another solid entry. At over two-and-a-half minutes of music, it's the longest track on the disc.
Getdown
I like the melodic vibe of this number a lot. Although the mold hasn't been completely broken, this seems to have more of a dreamy melodic quality to it.
