Portuguese producer Jepe unleashes his debut album for Moodmusic with 8 songs going from atmospheric soothing ambient pieces to his trademark melodic exercises into electronic house and techno.
The album start with ‘Dawn’, an homage to the perpetually evolving Berlin nightlife and what surprises it brings to our lives. ‘Illetas’ breaks the calm with first signs of droning synth lines and melancholic themes creating a mystical realm of the night as we know it.
‘Come To Life’ introduces his good friend Joao Neves on guitar, creating a delicate movement of time and space.
‘Lost’ shows the musicality of Jepe, with well knitted synthesiser work once again building a tense yet gloomy vision. The dusky ‘Planicie’ brings some clearness and hope to the equation, while picks ups the pace with a slow-slung chugger which is one of the best works of the Berlin based artist.
Now turning a new page, the title-song ’The Realm' brings more ardour to the listener, perpetually building up to a crescendo before ‘Whispering’ cusps the album in a fine manner.
