WHAT YOUR EARS SAY & THE COVER LOOKS LIKE
WHAT WE SAY
Chill hop & lo-fi are Gen Z's chillout music of choice, but it's hard to find the good stuff in the copycat playlist gold rush. Luckily there are producers like Blackboxx with his keen ear for calming sounds, an ability to give them a modern twist but also a deeper timeless quality.
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY
Throughout the last decade, Blackboxx has been a name synonymous with deep, emotive electronica. From his fledgling early releases that flirted with the cinematic appeal of future garage through to his more organic downtempo cuts of recent years, he has maintained a gift for effortlessly drawing the listener in to his intimate soundscapes.
‘Parisian Windows’ sees the culmination of the Blackboxx journey so far, with an accomplished song cycle of meditative music that feels nuanced in it’s composition and contemplative in it’s outlook. Recorded over the past few years as the artist moved halfway across the world for a new start, it’s as much a snapshot of a life in motion as it is a musical document of his progress as an artist.
Infused with a sense of melancholy and longing, the album expertly combines lush instrumentation with delicate percussion for a truly beguiling audio adventure that evokes hazy summer nights in far-flung places. It’s a piece of work that is in equal parts inward-facing and personal, whilst also intimating wide-screen vistas full of life and hope. As a listening experience it feels wholly restorative, eroding the accumulation of your daily anxieties in the wash of it’s calming sonic waves.
‘Parisian Windows’ feels like a significant milestone in it’s author’s progress as an artist and musician, a love letter to the sounds and spaces that have helped inspire them throughout the years - and in turn, a beautiful gift to listeners to enjoy in perpetuity.
