A.M.R’s acclaimed debut album, “A Place For Everything,” arrived just several months ago; yet, he’s already back with a gorgeous new single, “Beginnings,” before year’s end. Exploring deeper emotional terrain comes naturally for the Qatari talent, whose compositions never fail to deliver hypnotic grooves and stirring melodic motifs. In “Beginnings,” A.M.R first introduces a formidable house groove; at the quarter turn, two gorgeous themes enter the fray: a moody piano theme and a lighter, almost sun-kissed repeating guitar riff. A.M.R later introduces a higher-octave riff, which completes the captivating melodic progression. This is another masterclass in less-is-more songwriting, in which each additional layer contributes both a robust musicality and emotional power to the composition.
Out of these two remix albums I much prefer Remix 02 as there are alot more remixes with which I enjoy. Monstercat Silk has done an amazing job with the selection of artists as this was the album that made me want to drive deep into the Monstercat realm with which allowed me to discover an album with which I look forward to purchasing in the future.
