Daniel Peter Amazing second record by Eluize - mellow, lush audioscapes, a warm, stoid kick helping you through most of the way, and then the synths! Lots if ideas, melodies, and arpeggios piled on top of each other, and yet it never gets too much. "Slate" is a perfect example for that, and a great opener. Also, acidy track "Blackout" is a definitive standout. Oh, and did I mention that Eluize spontaneously sent me NTTD002 as well, because she was able to put both my pre-order and NTTD001 into one shipment? Well done, Eluize!
Subtly triggered the completist in me - now I just HAVE to get NTTD003... Favorite track: Slate.

    Night Tide founder Eluize returns to the label with her follow up to last year’s debut release “Talk In Technicolour”. Her latest five track sonic trip “For the Forgetful” follows 24 hours searching to be lost, finding comfort in the dance floor, time spent after hours and the day that follows. It seeks out soaring highs and sweeping lows covering all energies.

    “Slate” opens. A deep offering, subtle and enthralling. Bright eyed keys, smooth strings, a snare that snaps and a swelling sub alludes to what’s to come. The tale continues with “For the Forgetful”, a hypnotic, punchy, deep house workout, alluring and sensual it beckons with whispered promises, abyssal toms, twisted pads and intricate percussion.

    We go harder on the flip, ruthless, pushing, pulsing “The Blackout” shakes away any last doubt and drives the sojourn into the night along with memories you’ll try to retrieve tomorrow. Eluize’s take on techno, the bass pumps beneath a grinding acid line, interspersed with echoed bleeps and a cutting lead. The build continues. “Second Valley” is ecstatic. Deep house meets tranceesque undertones, for peak time moments or as the day breaks. Its cinematic soundscape speaks to Eluize’s penchant for the theatric as classical instruments twist through synthetic sounds.

    We close with “Rest (Refrain)” which brings back themes from the session had in an ambient context, mustering the mood of recovery, waking, confused in the gentle afternoon light, when memories and motifs from the night before linger on the mind in gentler forms.

Track Name: For the Forgetful
I've been waiting,
Waiting for this,
So long, so long.
I've been waiting,
Waiting for this, so long.

Don't you want to forget?
Lights flash on black on black
Don't you want to forget?

I'll meet you in the dark,
Don't you want to forget?
We'll run into the night,
Just take my hand...

Waiting, waiting, don't you want to forget
