APKLYPZ has released his superb latest single, ‘Golden Spiralverse’. Released on 2nd November 2018, the song is an enthralling and emotive listen which is accompanied by a spellbinding video.
The track opens on a kick drum, followed by a gorgeous syncopated beat. There are various melodies to be enjoyed throughout and the erratic opening soon settles into a groove. The single has elements of Trapp and Garage, with strong bass and distorted voices to be heard in the distance. Some of the melodies are hard-hitting while others are juxtaposed to this, they are delicate but just as important.
The song is built around lots of individual pieces coming together seamlessly as a whole. There is a stunning section where the beat pulls away and the delicate melody is left which then also disappears. This is followed by the beat kicking back in and the melody returns with minor inflections to it. A wonderful composition which offers something surprising around each corner. There are so many glorious layers of texture created by the innovative instrumentation, each listen introduces something new and unexpected. Just how APKLYPZ has gone about composing such an intricate piece of work, we are unsure. The effects are long lasting and the emotions provoked will stay with the listener for a long time after.
APKLYPZ describes himself as an audiovisual artist, this is well demonstrated on this release. The visuals which accompany the song are simply stunning. The colour tones he has used are mesmerising and infatuating. There are yellow colours mixed with black to create a colour pallet which is instantly recognisable as the end of summer moving into autumn. The richness and depth of detail are emotive and vibrant throughout making for a thoroughly engaging piece of art.
It is clear APKLYPZ is a seriously talented artist. Not only in the audio sense of artistry but also the visuals. He has a stunning talent which enables him to marry together both elements seamlessly and create a piece of art which is timeless.
As winter approaches we recommend checking out this excellent release. ‘Golden Spiralverse’ will take you to a warm and inviting place which will have you reaching for the repeat button all winter long.
