Starcat's New Moon

Starcat has only been producing 80s inspired synth music for a few months, but his second track entitled Moon is a massively orchestrated piece of 80s emotion delivered with the skill of a veteran producer.

The beginning reminded me of Duran Duran's Save a Prayer, but all pop synth influence is thrown asunder within seconds. Eclectic drum patterns play our like an electro jazz odyssey and when the bass line kicks in the shapes shift before us into a contrast of black and white in windblown shapes, punctuated by electric claps. What provides majestic contrast to the freeform percussion is some of the most beautiful minimal and slow synth melodies I've had the pleasure of experiencing.

The melodies are ghostlike in weight, but rock solid in presence. Floating in and out of the sharps drum work, weaving through the monolithic structures, flowing with the celestial breeze. I'm totally taken in by these elements coalescing into one, making even the smallest sound detail feel beyond epic and gargantuan in nature.

Starcat's Moon experience is available for FREE download and please give this new producer love of love on his soundcloud here.
