[qd-4270] Charmant Juliette – Musique Pour L’ame
Musique Pour L’ame (Music for the Soul) is ten tracks and 45+ minutes of melodic and harmonious downtempo electronica. This is pleasant music that flows from track to track, often within the same BPM range, recalling golden days of the past while inspiring dark visions of the future.
What Russia-based musician and producer Charmant Juliette (Charming Juliette, in English) has done in this release is build musical structures far removed from the industrial glitch and dark noise of her alter-ego Julia Van Der Piller, instead opting for subtle moods, for fragile threads of melody built from repeating motifs. But her penchant for heavier music looms through each track, providing a contrast to the bright hues.
If you keep listening, you will find yourself cocooned in a massive web of synth grooves and looped rhythms. This is Charmant Juliette’s vision of electronic downtempo, ambient, and broken beat: it is nothing but a subtle snare for your heart that draws you in with tender melody and traps you in jaws of sinister ambience.
FILE UNDER: downtempo, ambient, electropop, synth groove, breakcore without the brutality.
