‘A Fine Mess‘ by Dutch electronic producer/artist Julian Edwardes (Breda, NL)! A free, smoothed-out EP with tracks that were made shortly one after another and capture a vibe and musical working process he developed in a short period. It’s safe to talk about Edwardes ‘seizing a moment’; letting go of endless takes and smooth productions. Looking for rawness and the ‘here & now’ in a semi analog & digital working environment. The arrangements travel through off-grid percussion, drunk-sounding synth-themes, crumbling sequences and melodic landscapes.
The overall character of the music carries weakness, troubling thoughts, chaos, sleepless nights and lost days. But also hope, love, inner-peace. And somehow each track re-assures in it’s own way. As cliche as it sounds; there is no beauty without ugliness, success doesn’t come without failure and peace can only be achieved if one has experienced chaos. In the end, ‘A fine mess’ is dedicated to loved ones, hoping to provide them with the energy needed and to not only help look ahead, but certainly look at the present.
