The tracks on "Traveller" do without striking effects and fashionable frills. instead the listener can expect clean elaborate electro sounds that focus on an aspect that has been put aside in many other places: composition and melodics. the songs deploy these features to tell us about moods that oscillate between wanderlust, homesickness, well-being and mere existence."Traveller" is deliberately less percussive and emphasizes the narrative facetes of the melodies.
This album, although almost classical at its core, develops its very own modernity. The combination of highly pleasing feel-good components and tension-building bass and lead lines develops the typical Xenoton charm.
remixes complement this release excellently. Both reinterpret the
original track in their very own ways by adding something new to the
already described characteristics. Abjective adds some ruptured unrest
to "camden lock" revealing a somewhat different aspect of the track. Weldroid quite properly underlines the rocking (or at least
head-nodding) character of "friedrichshain" with massive beats. Both
remixes are not added just for being there but they add fascinating
aspects to Xenoton's music and enhance the whole release.
Listening to "Traveller" is fun, while repeated listenings reward through
the discovery of new details. It is highly recommended to go on the next
part of the journey with this travel guide.
