Biding his time, ReOrder hasn’t been hurried into sending his first albumon the market. It’s been ten years for the reason that Slovakian studio head started making impressions on the scene, most not too long ago via his outings on Black Hole, FSOE, Subculture, Monster and others. It was time properly stayed: a interval wherein he honed his craft, instinctively constructed out his musical vary, discovered himself as an artist, and all of the whereas sized up the album taking part in subject.
Out now, ‘IAMREADY’s assertion says all of it.
It’s inherent within the album medium, however you solely get one shot at your first lengthy participant. That clean canvass, the proverbial clear sheet – the one and solely probability to drop that flawless debut into the discography. Artists method their firsts in many alternative methods: the eclectic, the collaborative, the headline-chasing, the all-in/bases-covered. When it involves ReOrder’s nevertheless, he had one central mandate above all others: “ship an album with as fewer preconceptions connected as potential”.
“I needed this report to be a ‘e-book’ inconceivable to evaluate by its cowl”, says Tibor. “One for individuals to hearken to, to soak up and make their very own minds up on. One that carried as fewer advance notions or biases as potential.” To this finish (not unreasonably after ten years) the producer positioned full retailer in his personal skills – producing the tracks, nearly with out exception with out co-producers. When creative alliances did come to play an element, he needed them to be with newer names/expertise, which might slalom any/all predetermination traps.
This, he accurately decided, would give it the singular and distinctive sound you’ll now hear on ‘IAMREADY’.
Waves of chord and pad, picked out by elegantly performed piano keys kind ‘Reinstate’ – the beat-free intro piece, with which he cues the album. ReOrder then serves two numbers in fast succession sung by American singer/songwriter Weldon. Thus far largely solely recognized inside deep home circles, he brings each relatable edge to ‘Entropy’ & ‘Gravity’s verses, whereas their choruses turn into extra metaphoric in nature. Near solo, Emma Chatt’s voice carries the primary half of ‘Alive Tonight’, earlier than it catches a swell of Tibor’s primetime synth sensibility. Meanwhile Lebanese vocalist Cassandra Grey provides her breath-stealing contact to ‘Goodbye’, discovering pathos and bittersweet-ness to equalize the thrust of ReOrder’s skybound studio work.
In solo mode the Slovakian pushes additional into the instrumental trance gamut. ‘Digital World’ lends a psy-ish warp to the album, whereas ‘Beyond Time’ and ‘All There Is’ respectively discover it at its most melodic and euphorically laser-struck extents. Bringing the total extent of its scope into sharpest focus, in its closing moments the album engages the chilled magnificence of the Susie Ledge-sung ‘Far Away and the breaks-fuelled power burst that's C-qnz-collab ‘Reunited’.
