‘Passenger Vol.7’ Compilation Ep. (Kuukou Records)
AM.I stands for unapologetically losing yourself in that moment where music explodes into an array of colour and feel. Whilst writing and composing her own typical melodic sound, AM.I enters a world that is entirely her own. And by slowly conquering the Belgian nightlife and beyond, she allows everybody who’s looking for a magical night to enter said world. Starting in 2016, she started producing original tracks with a sharp and dark edge that reintroduces melodic techno music in a whole new, fresh and unexpected manner.
Follow AM.I through this vibing, humming and enticing rabbit hole and discover how herunique voice subtly references to her biggest influences from the soundtrack music of Hans Zimmer to Linkin Park. Prepare for an immersive experience that will introduce you to darkness as well as light, closely interwoven with each other testing limits and boundaries in a vivacious ocean ofrhythm.
The Passengers series is a subsection of Simina Grigoriu’s mighty Kuukou Records – the premise of which is to provide a platform for auspicious artists who have yet to transition toward the limelight but are destined to do so. So far it’s hosted a swathe of producers from across the globe including the likes of The Rocketman, Jägerhertz, Dalosy and Vamos Art.
Number 7 in the series comes clad with the same sturdy attitude as it’s predecessors as it brings together tracks from Greek artist George Adi, Belgian talent AM.I and Italian producers Clif Jack and Jacopo Susini. George Adi kicks things off with a dense, overdriven kick with thunders under progressive, interweaving melodies that are punctuated by neat snare flicks and filter control. AM.I follows up with pellucid percussion and a swelling sense of tension. The track thins and thickens throughout as a bit crushed piano line and emotive tones ring out which perfectly encapsulate her unapologetic approach to floor focused dance music. Clif Jack then follows up with ‘Go On Home‘ – a deep and refreshingly simple track that demonstrates the potency of raw drums and clever sequencing. Jacopo Susini then brings things to a close with ‘Face To Face‘ – a peak-time roller which sets twinkling tones and synth stabs over a dark, throbbing underbelly which rounds off another solid addition to the Passenger series.
