Highly melodic with complex but spacious sound design, this inspired work is a technicolour ride across sub bass, celestial future breakbeat, drum-roll-fuelled dancefloor rollercoasters, soaring euphoria, otherworldly soundscapes, weightless sino and even a bit of ¾ time.
Micay has found a sweet-spot between prog, trance, techno, hardcore, jungle, IDM and ambient, in a renewed twist on the magic mix that birthed Future Sound of London’s hybrid classic ‘Accelerator’. Blue Spring explores the connections and cycles of youth and music, in times of fast change and upheaval. It takes the Castlemorton clash between ravers and authorities as its starting point, and transposes it to an imaginary world.
To create the album artwork, Nathan wrote a script outline to be adapted by Peter Marsden into a comic, in turn illustrated by Dominic Flannigan. The comic sees a young data miner rebel by attending a rave in the woods with her friends, only for the event to be broken up by the ranks of a futuristic police state. ‘Blue Spring’ is the start of the revolution.
