There are artists who, in order to go beyond their sound, have to get rid of their original name and create another, but then there are others who, in order to go further, have to rediscover themselves, to create a sound whose starting point is not born so much of the attempt to cross borders and recover them. This is the case with producers TheArchitech & Rwbel who present “Stardust” in 33 degrees Fahrenheit.
Since they followed their instinct and began to produce what they really felt they could do, without stopping making proposals that are as interesting as they are unique, they have questioned the hackneyed cliché that nothing is being produced that is not homogeneous in the market.
This work that unites them demonstrates the particular way both producers understand sound, located at the opposite end of the commercial, the generic, what works: what they do is, on the contrary, a kind of unstable magma of pulsations and radiance, with melodic outlines and blurred textures, pursuing a calm, spiritual, almost ascetic expression. All those languages and influences from which he was nurtured dialogue on this album, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.
In the end, together, they end up creating an album where there is a very careful balance between the ambition of their intentions and the greatness of their results, managing to go further, a task that is not easy at all. But the level is up there, and both producers can be proud of having initialed and reaffirmed their entry into the history of electronic music.
