WD2N delves into an otherworldly spirit with the moving ambient/dance hybrids of “Unknow God” and “We Dance Tonight”. For these two pieces possess a mystical quality while they build up with such grace. Driving rhythms power the songs forward, revealing an entire aural ecosystem that teems with life, courtesy of their adherence to deep house. Throughout the journey WD2N lets the melodies glimmer as they bounce off each other, giving them a loose, almost jazz-like vibe at times. By allowing such a stylistic range the two tracks have a freewheeling feel to them, one that allows a great deal of sunlight to come into the proceedings. Each piece possesses their own personality, showing yet a different angle of WD2N’s work.
Quite glorious in its gradual buildup the celebratory “We Dance Tonight” feels visceral in its adherence to a steady groove. Evolution occurs with the utmost of ease, with WD2N slowing drawing in further detail into the mix. At times the piece’s patient demeanor recalls a picture coming into focus, for the song merely hints at a melody at first. Halfway through the track a stately melody emerges, one reminiscent of Justice at their absolute best. On the latter half of the track gradually the melody fades away into the mix as the groove once more becomes dominant. Easily the highlight of the collection “Unknow God” opts for a fragile quality to the opulent sound. Seemingly endless the way the song’s buildup occurs feels outright vital. Gradually an ever-dazzling array comes into the mix, revealing a nearly psychedelic swirl of color brought into the proceedings. WD2N flirts with more ambient pastures as the balance between an out-alright fevered dance beat and swirling nearly shoegaze-like atmospheres gives the sound an intimate vibe.
On “Unknow God” and “We Dance Tonight” WD2N crafts an impeccable aural universe, one that draws the listener into lovely, neon-hued environments.
