It is a good way to introduce Onur Ozman in his own words; deepness lies in emotion. Onur has been active in the Zurich electronic scene for years and has released on Isolate, Sum Over Histories and Moodmusic.
With his debut album 'Aeterno Modo', Onur takes us on a journey of musical symmetry, form and function. Like the advance single Meta, the whole album is a multivisionary journey that can be enjoyed either in small portions or as an entire sonic universe in one go.
This duality is one of his strengths: When you dissect a piece of his music, you discover more details, go deeper and find out more. Layering emotions, places and sounds is an art to be learned, and Onur masters it perfectly.
The opener Freeman Dayson takes you to a warm and cosy place that nevertheless has rough edges and sets the tone for the rest of the album. White Hole takes the listener into the void and leaves no hostages sitting on the sofa. It's electronic dance music and that's exactly what the song does. Perfectly tuned synth work with hints of Detroit techno is a terrific opener on any dance floor.
Meta, which has already captured the ears of the likes of Dave DK, Joris Voorn, Dj Three and Ame, takes us further into the darkness until the break comes and the sun implodes. Wonderful emotional music is all we can say.
To keep things complex, Danuser raises the BPM into rave territory and literally rips off shirts with this weird anthem that will hopefully be understood by generations to come.
Lux Aeterna keeps things strictly on the dancefloor, be it in your head - or in the Berghain with choral voices and dark synthesiser work.
Proxima Centauri, with its hypnotic feel and deep bass, closes the album in style and shows the musical galaxy Onur Ozman is entering with ease, you might say.
Aeterno Modo may be his first album, but thanks to The Powers That Be, it certainly won't be his last.
