Title: Phrase - A
In modern times, art was perceived as a pure unit that represents a cohesive
and universal idea. But then Postmodernism appeared, and tried to challenge
these definitions of art and stretch them in order to break the rigid borders
that Modernism has created. Postmodernism introduced the term of collage,
which means taking different unites and assemble them together into one
piece.Phrases in music can be seen as a kind of collage; separate units that
combined together create a track.
After some time of polishing and perfecting his sound, Ritmo, aka Dubi Dagan,
has decided to take a different approach for his second album. Forget what
you know about albums, and take a look to the future. Trying to experiment
with innovative directions of expressing his art, Ritmo decided to take the
concept of Phrases and separate them into two phrases – Phrase A & Phrase B.
Each Phrase consists of a collage of Ritmo's latest artistic creation and expresses
different moods. Phrase A, is the melodic, happy and sunny side of Phrases.
It begins with 'Follow Me', which is a seductive psychedelic tune that signals you,
as the sample will say - to leave everything behind and follow this revolutionary
process. After you managed to pass the first stage, you will start having 'Big Eyes'.
This is a natural procedure in Phrase A, and comes with reinforcement of Motion Drive,
aka Philip Guillaume. Having 'Big Eyes' helps you realize the positive side of life and start
dancing in a manic uncontrolled manner to show it. If you think that it will help you
distinguish between a 'Dream & Reality' then you might be expecting a surprise.
Because this trip was designed exactly for destroying all the predictable assumption
we have, and the best way is to embrace the notion that a dream and reality can
happen simultaneously. For the final phase of Phrase A, we must 'Imprint' you. After
all, passing through such a musical turbulence needs a final proof that you are eligible
to go to the next stage, to Phase B. But in order to leave a mark that will give the
proper grounds for this kind of 'Imprint', Ritmo called another expert for the job –
Zen Mechanics, aka Wouter Thomassen. Together, they create the finale that both
closes a Phrase and opens another one, using their special thumping base line and
01. Ritmo - Follow Me
02. Ritmo & Motion Drive - Big Eyes
03. Ritmo - Dream & Reality
