Willem Gator ‘Closer’ Reviewed at Escafandrista

Closer is the first sample of the Sublime Locked-In Syndrome , the fifth album by Italian electronic producer Willem Gator .The artist creates a combination of downtempo beats, bass lines and a multitude of oriental and orchestral instruments. It focuses on each song gradually increasing in emotional intensity, helping to incorporate both rock and electronic aspects. The result is an experience that is eminently danceable but deeply melancholic. It transmits hedonism and detachment. Electronic anthems scale the musical skies while probing the emotional lows.

Kramies ‘I Wished I Missed You’ Reviewed at With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Dutch-American singer songwriter Kramies, who hails from Ohio in the USA, has spent some time living in Ireland, in a castle no less. He has used these historic and serene surroundings to record new songs. The first of these that I have heard is the haunting, other worldly, ethereal “I Wish I Missed You”. I could go so far as to describe it as a lament, but it also strikes me as a man trying to find feelings that he thinks he ought to have about a past lover. Either way Kramies pours so much heart, soul and emotion into this tune that it haunts your brain in a good ghost kind of way. Check out the beautiful video to accompany the song below.

Kramies ‘I Wished I Missed You’ Reviewed at Soul Kitchen

Marcel Proust wrote in Les plaisirs et les jours : “Is not absence, for those who love, the most certain, the most effective, the most vivacious, the most indestructible, the most faithful of presences? ”
I Wish I Missed You is an ode to this absence and presence that does not fade when we loved, when we love. A forest of recollections, fleeting, between sweetness and violence.

“I wish i Missed You” is an evocative noisy ballad reminiscent of certain cadences of dream pop, but also the writing of Mark Eitzel ecstatic. To make things more impressive, the stamp and writing Kramies, very close to the folk lullabies of the first Al Stewart. To accompany the song a video directed by film makers and label manager Cam Merton Australia’s Hidden Shoal , the label for which Kramies impact. The video is a dreamlike reverie in the form of a past love.
