Mar io - Twilight Of Ages (Broque 135)


At a time when our memories of sweaty club nights seem to stem from a parallel universe, it seems just fair that Mar io’s latest broque EP dedicates it heart and soul entirely to atmospheric downbeat electronica. „Twilight of Ages“ is full of reminiscences of the 90s, but rather than telling tales of dancefloor hysteria, it takes the turn right into the adjacent chillout rooms. Any many may recall that the chillout of the 90s has been the time and place where soothing ambient spheres combined with an unhindered drive towards experimental electronica have made a long-lasting impact on contemporary music by constantly bending and blending genres and sounds. After his club-oriented EPs for labels such as Form & Terra, and last but not least his album on Broque, Mar io shows here that he has the potential to stand up to the likes of Plaid, Biosphere, The Orb and the whole Space Night posse. With „Space @ Night“, he even dedicates a track of his own to Pascal F.E.O.S., who died surprisingly in 2020 and who, apart from being well-known for his rave adventures, had been one of the driving forces behind the Space Night sound, jointly with Alex Azary and Gabriel Le Mar under the Aural Float moniker. While „Space @ Night“ is representative for the high ambitions of the EP, gliding through time and space both dreamily and playfully, the EP as a whole resurrects the heyday of dubby athmospheric ambient sounds and playfully broken downbeats across seven diverse and enchanting tracks. As such, the charms of “Twilight of Ages” will delight and embrace everyone, by no means limited to those who have experienced the escapism of the 90s in chillout rooms rather than the dancefloor.
