Ninth Parallel – Infinitum (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Up-and-coming artist Ninth Parallel has finally released “Infinitum.” The single arrives two years after the release of his last original track, the ground-breaking “Verloren,” and one year since his remix of the leading single from Worlds, “Sea of Voices,” was picked up by Porter Robinson and released as an official remix.
As a young artist with an accomplishment like his “Sea of Voices” remix, there is no doubt a great deal of pressure to follow up with something equally as good, or risk living in its shadow. He took his time, but it was definitely worth it, as the final product is a force to be reckoned with–one which “fundamentally changed” him as an artist and a person.
A seven-minute masterpiece of a track, “Infinitum” paints a vivid picture of Ninth Parallel’s perspective of the world and, like a great piece of art should be, is a window into the depths of his mind. Blending classical and modern electronic elements, everything from the musical themes to the production choices help the piece tell a story in a similar way to Madeon, from whom Ninth Parallel undoubtedly draws inspiration.
Chord progressions drive uplifting feelings that eventually coalesce into an intense, melodic drop that combines some of the best elements of electro and progressive house. After switching up the rhythm for the second half of the main section, the heaviness gives way to piano and strings wrought with emotion that aim to resolve the hectic energy of the previous few minutes.
