Boy in a Room – Eerie

Boy in a Room – Eerie

(Deep Electronics, 2021-09-03)

Who is Boy in a Room?

No trace of him in the social medias, almost nothing in the musical platforms… In Facebook, Deep Electronics dropped his release real quick next to another commercial news… Who is this intriguing artist who has produced such a top class bag of ambient masterpieces?

The EP is a monument; the talented artist deserves a great attention and hopefully, through this review, we’ll send positive vibes to the eight years old label as well, which has contributed to make this project possible.

After further researches, we’ve learned that the artist really is “a young man in a room”, coming from India, that he made himself known as a DJ by winning a mix contest for Tenzi FM & Point Blank in 2014, that he has developed over the years a strong taste for electronica and ambient music. He has crafted his learning on the DAW until recently, before releasing a first experimental EP for Polysphere three months ago and “Eerie” right now, that we are reviewing.

Music is subjective, but we find him phenomenal, even those among us who don’t connect well with ambient. The main reasons: the human ear has a particular great affinity for the bass frequencies and for the creative people… Boy in a Room designs his bass layers with talent and, teaming with Rosto in the mastering, he innovates, by realising an extremely subtle balance between the deep grounds and the aerial sonorities. We have also some vocal surprises, that have been pretty well implemented into the music.

Lush, hypnotic, mind-bending, the first piece “Going home” hits the mental shores waves after waves, developing a layered thickness which rolls on in the ears. “Sirius” takes the experience to a higher tone, up to the named star. “Catapult” builds the tension through a dialog between dissonant percussions and spiritual vocals, tainted of cosmic words, sustained by a mighty drone evolving slowly in the bass frequencies. “Uncertainty”, cinematic, deploys the richness of the artist’s creativity, while “Tower of Fear” shows his intriguing side. “Big Rip” sounds like the gathering of all the previous pieces, closing the journey on mesmerising sonorities, offering to the listener an intensive moment of contemplation.

A release made to be visited more than listened…
