Dylan Tauber’s “Sea People” is more than just an album; it’s a sonic voyage into vocal trance, world music, and chill-out electronica. With his 17th album, Tauber pays homage to the electronic sounds of the ’90s, channeling the influences of artists like Enigma and Deep Forest while adding his unique touch.
The album immediately sets the tone with its title, “Sea People.” It’s a fitting name as the music immerses listeners in a sea of aquatic soundscapes.
The album begins with a remixed version of “Swimming,” a track that sets the tone for the entire musical voyage through love and the mystical allure of the sea. With its ambient sounds and EDM remix elements, it’s infectious and pulsating. The delicate female vocals, especially when singing the line “I am swimming in the rhythm of your heart,” evoke images of romance and love. It’s a track that lures you into its rhythmic embrace, making it impossible not to be entranced.
The fourth track, “The Sea Remembers Its Own,” is a standout moment on the album. With its thick and deep male vocals singing emotively, it’s a heartfelt expression that resonates in a tranquil atmosphere.
“Sea People” excels in creating a dreamlike, transcendental experience. The transitions from one track to the other have a stream of consciousness swimming along, as each piece retains its distinct character while contributing to the narrative.
Immerse yourself in a refreshing oasis of calm and contemplation with “Sea People” by Dylan Tauber.
