One of Italy’s most innovative electronic music producers, ‘Nihil Young’, kicks off Frequenza’s 2019 with a bang, unleashing two stunning new creations ‘Ascension’ and ’She’. ‘Ascension’ is a tense cinematic outing, where pulsating hooks ride over a dark effervescent undertow that organically mutates, giving way to a dramatic breakdown where anatomical synth stabs pirouette over tension filled sirens offset by elegant, melodic chimes. ’She’, as the title denotes, is gloriously feminine and primed with sublime sonic details. Airy syntholgy and hypnotic pads ebb and flow, underpinned by a warm bass growl that gives way to 2 emotive breakdowns where pretty melodies resonate over ethereal synthcapes before exploding back into the growl.
