031 - "Yume" by Helios
"Yume" by Helios (aka Keith Kenniff aka Goldmund) is quickly becoming a fast favourite for the times when I need something bright and breezy to soundtrack my day. It is wonderfully layered with delightfully uptempo, easily accessible sounds and rhythms; nothing too taxing or obtuse, rather it features a bright sense of joyfulness that I find intoxicating.
Kenniff's ability to craft sound is something to marvel: the way he can bring disparate found-sounds to create a deep rhythm track as he has with "sonora lac" is simply beautiful; to then layer acoustic guitar and synths over this soundbed is inspired.
"Yume" by Helios is a beautiful piece of music, one I highly recommend.
