City High Fantasy is a remote collaboration of two prolific and distinct electronic musicians, both alumni of Dream Catalogue label, which released Pixelord’s third album Hypnorave in 2018, and several albums by ambient/experimental musician Sangam from Manchester, UK in the past four years.
The musical journey goes from a highly energetic, dark synth rhythm’n’rave with complex beat structures, further drifting the listener towards melancholic, abstract ambient soundscapes, stretched and frozen in time, with barely noticeable and slowly pulsating beat buried underneath ethereal melodies and hypnagogic synth pads, and back to more energetic percussions and beats. Timeless and timely, an exploration of inner freedom and the intricate ways two creative personalities find to co-exist in the unique, newly created sound universe.
This EP provides a peculiar introspective in the joint creative process of two distinct, self-sufficient artists. Both Pixelord and Sangam have a highly recognizable artistic ‘signature,’ they speak in very different, original musical languages. Somehow, these two private, individualistic, subjective inner creativities found a way to work together, to populate each other’s musical worlds with new sound entities, bringing their own different atmospheres, speaking all new tongues, amalgamating alien concepts and approaches together.
