Last disc in the series could be classed as the most surprising because of the particular approach on different music styles. From ambient to trap and chillout with atonal compositions and astonishing sound effects, it looks like 2015 was INDRA’s year for experimentation.
An album containing four melodies, all composed and produced in 2014; four styles; a mammoth work. This is the way we can briefly describe the album. Feliciano is dynamic and lasts for 50 minutes. Roll It also fits into the area of dynamic beats, while The Living Nada and Ambiosonic are a side note, being completely different to the first two.
Platinum Three is a rhythmical album, but we also discover lyrical accents, which are specific to INDRA.
With this album we can already glimpse the end of the ARCHIVES series. It contains four pieces: the first two were composed in 2013, the last two belong to 2014.
This album contains three melodies, all composed and recorded in 2013. They are long, conceptual, pieces with many “layers” to their composition. If Meteor is a dynamic and yet lyrical approach, From Beyond and In the Sky are atmospheric pieces, echoing into space.
The first album in the collection is a combination of styles: lounge, electronic, psychedelic, ambient. The passage from 2012 to 2013 leaves the usual range of INDRA (Pretorian and In Between), however the last melody (Elois) reflects “the dream of summer nights, which many romantic awaited…”
We easily observe the tendency of INDRA towards chill-out rhythms and harmonies of his last albums, a style that he interestingly combines with particular electronic music. Diamond Five is a special album that captures a special affectionate side on the foundation of relaxing sounds and discrete rhythms.
Rhythms combined with deeply lyrical themes often induce a state of trance and nostalgia. Diamond Four is no exception to this. An album of elegant, rhythmic pieces, all composed and recorded in 2011. A collection of little treasures that deserves to be heard.
