Jazz and house newcomer Kareem Ali laces up Synapsis-012, at times some trumpet, some samples, but always solid beats and melodies as Synapsis Records presents his debut 12″; Nocturnal Respiration. Hailing from the NYC, Kareem composes eight tunes that show off his imaginative composing skills.
Can you feel it///The experience begins with jazzy chords and Kareem on the trumpet. The jazzy feelings continue as the trumpet sounds over the 7th chords.
Sands of Time///Synth melodies rain out as the beat drops and builds. A bassline appears for a second to provide a groovy intermission.
Flavor///Bouncing melodies begin as percussion strikes that leads into chords. Later voices filter into the background as another melody line sneaks into the mix.
Deep Space///Flowing arpeggiations begin as a bass line and other synth lines appear to cause a mystical swelling of sounds. No beats all heart.
In Orbit///The b side begins with crunchy beats and 7th chords. Trumpet notes ring out and flow, an B section quickly appears, and then right back to the A section.
Heart///Fast jazzy sample appears as the bpm is pushed up to give a nice flavor and variety to the vinyl. Short and sweet tune for the heads.
Solid///Classic drums start the action, quickly followed by arpeggiations and pulsating bass sound. Head knotting tune.
Portal///To end this this release, a bass sound begins and quickly joined by drums. The bass melody continues to ride in the forefront meanwhile supported by a vocal sample. Later a chord progression comes in and takes it deep.
