Barnaby Nutt A fantastic blend of synths, cello and ambient field recordings that work wonderfully well of bringing emotion and a compassion to electronic music. Each track contributes to the whole, but the two longer tracks really allow the project to fulfil its promise.
Best listened to in the sunshine, in a forest or by a river.
Favorite track: Cycles.

Rebirth (official video):

Following his electronic club aesthetic in „Untold Stories” [UKM036], Daniel Drumz takes a departure into the ambient synth wilds with „Komorebi”. This latest album represents a greatly matured perspective in the artist’s discography, debuting this time under his real name, Daniel Szlajnda. Komorebi presents pulsating, organic synthscapes that are nearly devoid of drum layers, jokingly referred to as „acid ambient” by Daniel.

The album’s name comes from the Japanese word 'komorebi’ (木洩れ日), which refers to sunlight beaming through forest trees — often misunderstood for only representing the gentle, nostalgic side of nature. Komorebi polyphonically explores the dichotomy between the delicate and beautiful forms of nature, as well as the brutal and ruthless pulse of instinctual survival.

The instrumental arrangements in „Komorebi” come from a modular synthesizer, built by Daniel during the work on the album. Harnessing imperfections and controlled unpredictability of this instrument fit perfectly into the themes of raw nature that the album is built upon. Sequences obtained by the synthesizer are in constant motion, never stopping in one place, and the album’s electronic pulse is often complemented by acoustic instruments: celesta, marimbas and pianos.
