VayFlor, Folum – Sognando [Polyptych]

7 min read

Polyptych begins the month of February by welcoming VayFlor back to the label for a new EP. The Italian artist first appeared on the Russian imprint in November of last year with a contribution to the label's 'Midway Selection' Vol. 3 mini compilation. As the lead piece on the collection, 'Fall Deep' delighted melodic house and techno fans with it's dark yet enchanting narrative. Now as 2021 moves into it's second month, VayFlor returns to the label alongside sometime studio partner Folum for a three track showcase entitled 'Sognando'.

Continuing to build on their creative synergy VayFlor and Folum explore a wide array of astral narratives beginning with the title selection. Dark and mysterious from the outset, it’s punchy low end and flowing rhythms provide momentous drive, while wispy effects and haunting atmospheres fill in the framework. A lively arp and buoyant percussion add further bounce to the groove, as smooth chord changes deliver a unique emotional slant to the journey. Nicely timed, the main break melts down to a storyboard of modulating bass and mind bending effects, expertly building with tension and emotion as the groove drops for a full on finale.

The second selection ‘Noia Muta’ surveys a similar design profile but with a further creative lean. The production immediately stands out with perfectly sculpted bass tones and muscular beats marrying for an absolutely monstrous sounding groove. Heady modulation and esoteric chord changes only add to it's brilliance, eventually serving as the foundation for trippy harmonics and offset arps to work their magic. Broken beats dominate the break, allowing for a great sense of space and anticipation, before segueing into a cosmic third movement.

The third and final original ‘Philosopher’ finds the duo continuing to flex their astral techno sensibilities. Tough, commanding and a touch psychedelic, it's reflective synth phrasing makes it the perfect selection to round out the EP. Also the most thought provoking of the three, the main break stands out with it's collage of clattering percussion and crunchy effects, tantalizing the senses as the bulbous groove paves the round home. It caps off an inspired collection of music from VayFlor and Folum, who make their Polyptych collaborative debut a hugely memorable one. Highly recommended.
