Soul Space

Soul Space is the electronic sound avatar of Vishnu PS : from Bangalore now residing in New Delhi. His new LP is like the perfect traveler's music - Clearly inspired by the surge of UK Garage, his sound is a peculier combination of Dub-Techno meets Four-Tet meets Royksopp meets oodles of synthesized ambience and melancholic harmony. The LP contains many tunes which reflect the producer's desires to formulate his musical ideas riding on solid four-on-the-floor virtues.  Subtle elements of minimal trance to stark elements of german techno are as obvious as is the expert sequencing of crafted bells and synthetic ambience on tracks like Morning At Roots and C'est La Vie. Our favorite track, on repeat, is titled You - A straight reckoner for all those who share The-love-of-Garage. Or is that Post-Garage now ? The song invokes a peculiar cosmic grit  trapped with a series of soft beats and a repeating haunting melody. As a producer, Soul-Space is sensitive to not ape the trends or stage himself as a studio jock. The tune Night, Night on the LP is a fry cry from the current mindless hiatus of EDM, Dubstep, Brainfeeder, Trap n Crap !  The sound of the album conjures after-hour feelings .. the emptiness of the dance floor that is possessed by dense harmonic tunes, embedded noise particles and precision beats. Soul Space is definitely a new player in the burgeoning electronic music scene of India, and we sure want to hear more ( production and 'more' live ) from Vishnu PS. Having Kollektiv Turmstrasse (Connaisseur Recordings), Komon (AUS Music) and Mark Farina (Om Records) to take notice of Soul Space, has been a clear indicator to this artist's future sound and direction .. or is that open to speculation ?!
