Stonefrenge: Black in Space

Stonefrenge: Black in Space, the latest release from ZOOLOOK, is a testament to the artist’s vision and versatility, weaving together elements of electronic, downtempo, and dub into a rich, auditory tapestry. This three-year project, described as a “dub space opera,” takes listeners on an immersive journey that is both sonically and emotionally engaging.

From the opening track, “Soul Rebel,” the album establishes a strong rhythmic foundation. The beats are intricate and layered, creating a hypnotic groove that draws the listener in. The bassline, deep and resonant, is a driving force throughout the album, providing a solid backbone to the more ethereal and experimental elements that ZOOLOOK introduces.

The title track, “Stonefrenge,” stands out with its complex rhythm patterns and atmospheric soundscapes. The track seamlessly blends downtempo beats with dub influences, creating a meditative yet dynamic listening experience. ZOOLOOK’s ability to balance these elements showcases his skill as both a producer and a composer.

“LO-FI Irie Feeling” offers a more relaxed vibe, with a laid-back rhythm that is both soothing and invigorating. The bassline here is particularly notable, providing a warm, enveloping sound that complements the track’s lo-fi aesthetic. This song exemplifies the album’s eclectic nature, demonstrating ZOOLOOK’s talent for genre-blending.

As the album progresses, “Natural High” and “Black in Space” continue to push the boundaries of conventional dub and electronic music. “Natural High” features a pulsating beat and a bassline that is both powerful and subtle, creating a sense of movement and elevation. “Black in Space,” the centerpiece of the album, combines these elements with cosmic synths and expansive soundscapes, truly embodying the “space opera” concept.

“We Come in Peace (and Love)” introduces a more ambient approach, with gentle rhythms and a softer bassline that create a peaceful, introspective atmosphere. This track highlights the album’s thematic diversity, offering a moment of calm amid the more rhythmically intense pieces.

The closing tracks, “Lost in Spece,” “HAL-LE,” and “Rockers,” bring the album to a satisfying conclusion. “Lost in Spece” and “HAL-LE” continue to explore the intersection of dub and electronic, with intricate rhythms and deep basslines that are both engaging and thought-provoking. “Rockers” ends the album on a high note, with a vibrant beat and an infectious energy that leaves a lasting impression.

Stonefrenge: Black in Space is a high-quality album that we are thrilled to feature on our webzine. ZOOLOOK’s ability to fuse different genres and create a cohesive, immersive listening experience is truly impressive. This album is a must-listen for fans of electronic, downtempo, and dub music, offering something for everyone within its eclectic mix of tracks.
