Andrew Bayer – Once Lydian (Original Mix)
Andrew Bayer has proven an electronic maestro. His balance of musicianship and sound design is simply unmatched. Following the immaculate “Perth” (as well as its potent B-side “Mirth Mobile”), Bayer returns with “Once Lydian,” a gorgeous tune fusing elements of electro, progressive, and trance in captivating fashion. The track begins (and ends) with a ground-shaking beat reminiscent of Above & Beyond‘s recent effort, “Mariana Trench,” before descending into an absolutely stunning melodic progression. With ilan Blue Stone’s “Spheres” and now “Once Lydian” in the rearview, Anjunabeats is off to a phenomenal start in 2014.
