Horizon Odyssey – “Beginnings”


Netherlands-based project Horizon Odyssey unveils an atmospheric electronic sound on new track “Beginnings.” Crisp percussive thumps and a serene trickling meshes with spacey backing synth pads, producing a caressing blissfulness with an aquatic-friendly sense of immersion. The lead synth line escalates gradually in tonal ferocity, showing ample momentum into a break just prior to the two-minute turn. There, ghostly wordless vocal effects and sporadic percussion continue the palpably climactic allure.

A soaring vocal entrancement takes hold after the mid-point, injecting a dreamy soaring into the already-hypnotic electronic production. These vocals and budding synth tones culminate in a satiating drop just before the three-minute mark, traversing into a satiating conclusion that melds the vocal element alongside consistently engrossing synth tones. “Beginnings” is a beautifully gripping electronic success from Horizon Odyssey.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Electronic.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
