meHiLove has been a cherished contributor to progressive since the very beginning of this decade; in fact, his first offering to our imprint was back in June 2011. We are delighted to present a new two-track EP by the Ukrainian melodic maestro.
The release kicks off with "Solace," which Max Flyant initially teased on his "Only Silk 04" mix last year. Throughout the composition, a light, retro-tinged bassline is punctuated by relaxing vocal stabs, as well as a heavily filtered, yet sunny piano theme, which eventually unfurls. Overall, as the track title implies, the main melodic and atmospheric themes conspire to create a serene and deeply comforting ambience. If the universal greeting of "good morning" were to be accompanied by a soundtrack, this song would prove a worthy candidate.
The gorgeous B-side, "Airy," finds meHiLove in vintage form. Specifically, lush melodies, infected with a just a hint of melancholy, pour over the listener, as a slightly more uptempo progressive house groove begins to take shape and slowly crescendo. In the main break, a soothing piano theme is introduced, which leads into the drop (alongside a delicious arpeggio), very much to hypnotic effect.
I've been listening to Silk Music radio since Fall 2018. Gregory's music stuck out to me overtime and ended up leading me to this album. I love discovering gems like this. The intro blew me away and really set the bar for the album in it's entirety. Each song is a journey. Thanks Greg! Jeremy Taylor
