Traces delivers chill out goodness courtesy of The Light Dreams
The Light Dreams latest album Traces is 12 tracks of chill out goodness galore. With calm relaxing and ethereal electro beats, Traces is a superbly produced musical work of art and with catchy pop hooks thrown into the arrangement this album is a real treat to the ears.
Whilst I found the whole album a delight to listen to, there were two tracks which really stood out to me. Awakening entertained from start to finish with its delightful arrangements and the mesmerizing Sea View round off this wonderful album.
The Light Dreams is the brain child of Sheffield based Electronic Music genius Alex Storer who has been producing music of this genre as Light Dreams since 2006.
It was in 2007 that The Light Dreams truly found their sound and style with the release of their debut album Into The Light. The Light Dreams released the second album Mechanical Drive in 2009 and after a creative break for three years, the third album Inferno was released in 2012.
2012 was a busy year for Alex as he also collaborated with David A Hardy on a newish soundtrack for the 1957 Russian Film Road To The Stars.
Alex also had the honour of receiving an invitation to the first honourary interstellar musician for the newly established initiative for Interstellar Studies.
In 2013 Alex was inspired by his love for Sci-fi to produce Future Worlds, which combines electronic and orchestral music to create a stunning sound track.
At the end of 2013, Alex released a special album Beyond The Boundary, which he had composed for the Initiative for Interstellar Studies and this leads into the release of Traces.
