TRACK OF THE DAY:
DEW-DROPS by EKIN FIL
ambient / ethereal / electronic
DEW-DROPS is the first track on the album CODA by EKIN FIL, released on August 14, 2020. Composed and recorded by Ekin Fil, mastered by James Plotkin.
In threatening times like these, one sometimes wishes for a state of calm and inner retreat on demand to recharge one’s batteries and come to oneself. Fortunately, there are artists like EKIN FIL who have created worlds of sound that have exactly this effect: calm, peace and tranquillity at the touch of a button – as long as you can get involved. Ahead of everything is our Track Of The Day: DEW-DROPS, which is just as delicate and fine as the title suggests. The other tracks on the album sound less optimistic, harbour a subtle restlessness, but are in no way inferior to our Track Of The Day with their ability to create an intense atmosphere and emotional depth… Small tip: listen in the evening/night or on grey Sunday afternoons.
