Plant43 – The Sentient City Awakens (SEMANTICA 54 – 2013)
UK artist Emile Facey operates the Plant43 moniker which is increasingly becoming a safe bet for harmonic albeit driving electro productions with a boom. Now Plant43 follows up its last year’s EP on Semantica with a five-tracker that remains faithful to the theme of the Sentient City.
Rich textures and luminescent pads characterize the release, whereas the opener “Inward Stream” features the most aggressive kicks that gradually succumb to gentle layers. Aquatic flow of “Hydro Subway” another highlight that creates associations with Drexciya and the concluding “Frond Of Stars” is a beatless stretch of synth leads. Glimmering electro tracks with a futuristic drive by Plant43.
