Chapter.Two’s vanguard singles (‘Tonight’ (“ethereal”, “stunning” – Dancing Astronaut), the tech-tipped Markus Schulz-collab ‘AR’ & the emotionally stirring ‘Bigger Than We Are’) have paved its summer-long road to release. They are now joined by six new, never-heard-before Cosmic creations.
With the cyber-synth futurism of ‘Noom’, counted among their number is the first studio-born team-up with Super8 & Tab. There’s also the (says YourEDM) “sparse techno-like cut”, “super-long built up chords” and “serious mainline soar” of the Tomorrowland-smashing ‘No Strings Attached’, together with Arnej.
Song-based collaborations are in no short supply either, with new music formed around many a prominent voice. Making not one, but two appearances on the album, ‘If Not Now’ and ‘Materia’s title track sees JES shining brighter than ever. The acidic bubble and radiating synths of ‘Someday’ marks a Chapter.Two recall for Alastor too, while ‘Sparks After The Sunset’ singer Sarah Lynn channels her soul into ‘Folded Wings’.
So, appetites’ whetted? Anticipation peaked!? Then await no more! The second Chapter of Cosmic Gate’s 2017 album project is out, about and ready to musically carry you through to the end of the year. Its available here
