The grace of Dimitar Dodovski’s original productions is always welcome and respected throughout the electronic music community…
With the airy textured sense of Dodovski’s signature vibes, Predeli opens with ‘Predel (i)‘: a wonderful layered transcendent introduction. Shortly after the introduction of the track, spaced vibes merge into a slowed breathtaking ethereal pattern of textures. Balearic vibes inside of a deep soundscape. Unbelievable, earth-moving and inspiring work from Dodovski. As the waves continue in ‘Predel (ii)‘, a vibrato hiss seamlessly integrates an imminent textured array of wonder. Perfect harmonics guide the way through an abstract journey that is ever so ambiguous, but makes a strong statement for the uniqueness of abstract vibes. A late night
dance-floor vibe emerges inside of the abstract textures. Dodovski is equipped to evoke electronic vibes across the electronic spectrum. ‘Predel (iii)‘ continues this trippy journey through carefully placed tones and blissful vibes. Abstract electronic music at the very best, Predel (iii) is a breathtaking arrangement of fresh ideas and layered sonic production. Pulsing, drifting wonders of mystical sound. The last brilliantly diverse production on this EP, ‘Predel (iv)‘ invites the listener to join on another unpredictable beat through textural treatments and organic acoustic elements. Dodovski’s signature set of textures returns to close out this stunning EP full of surprises and organic wavy vibes through abstract layers.
