Axel Boman : Luz Review

axel-boman-cdAxel Boman is back with his latest album called Luz. This is the Stockholm producer’s first fresh sounds in a decade since his breakthrough debut album, Family Vacation. Containing nine songs and featuring many guests and his longtime collaborators Robin Ekemark (design) and Erik Lavesson (words and art direction). Boman maintains his strong house music foundation while still sounding fresh and unlike any other artist in his field. The album is also offered in Dolby Atmos mastering for those seeking to go beyond the usual listening experience.

“Acid Distortion” has layers of sound for your ears to grab onto, and his use of samples is creative and combines to produce a danceable, hypnotic sound. At times, he pulls your attention with synths that jump out of the mix as if to say, “Hey, are you still paying attention?”

“‘Atra feat Kristian Harbor” is a playful, brightly colored track that stands out with Harorg’s passionate saxophone playing. His productions are balanced and paint a dreamlike musical state with depth for listening. The Latin clave is a nice touch that adds to the jazz meets Latin meets house vibe. The synths and samples put the disco frosting on the cake for an outstanding song to move your hips and have fun.

Luz has a buzz of originality throughout its songs and at the center of it all is Boman’s strong sense of balance and humor. With vital fragments of melody that are layered to reveal a shifting world of house that is hypnotic and blooming with textures. By the end of the nine songs, you have multiple additions to your playlist and a ready soundtrack for dancing and setting the mood for stimulating background music.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
