With thirteen tracks, So Far manages to be a remarkable album. A mostly dubstep/ ambient album with melodic undertones, So Far really do an amazing work for electronic musical artistry, inserting fresh, new and creative exultation into old elements, reworking lines, harmonies, principles and fusions that constantly reminds you why you were, you are and always will be into electronic music. A beautiful, melodic, philosophical and genuine work that reinvents basic intuitions of sonorous intimacy and reverts undeniable and soft graces of pure symmetry, So Far is an album you shouldn’t miss. Remarkable on its subtle ingenuity and shy skills, So Far, besides being curiously creative in a sometimes very naïve and ingenious way, with some minimalist arrangements of graceful repetition compelling the songs to surpass the boundaries of its own imposed rhythms, this record deserves to be considered purely for what it is: a groundbreaking masterpiece of unbreakable and creatively inspiring definition! Never electronic music was treated in such a daring experimental level of lucidity, with such a solid result. Circulating melodies that revolves around the harmonies defined in the core of the songs, Adam Boffa expands the boldness of his musical ambitions into an ever changing invisible pattern of underlying stargaze beauty, that constantly contemplates the visual accuracy of sounds eager to perpetuate their own notes into a cyclic demand of infinite prerogatives and intricate perspectives. Nevertheless, able to function in a cohesive field of abrasive displacements, that seems to be powerful enough to relocate these same allegorical notes of color into the previous structures that allows the melodies to dignify their outstanding capabilities as the driving principle behind the engineering of the songs presented, what we hear is the composition of a consistent pyramid of sonorous latent exposition, inserted on the top of a sensible line of intuition, unraveling an ambitious and poetic defiance, that recreates the musical order normally imposed for electronic music.
So Far, so good! This album is simply beyond any ordinary description, as the marvelous universe created by the superbly convoluted, cyclical, harmonic and poetically dense melodies in constant expansion throughout the record reach a decisive collision point at the core of its own superb sonorous supremacy, being rewardingly outstanding, to say the least. Allowing the sagacious preciosity of the imposing beauty of the songs here to shine above the horizon of the usual serenity that we commonly hear brightly descending on the easy layers of the genre, I can absolutely assure you that So Far is a brilliant record. And undoubtedly, the songs Bloom, 0713, Should, 1012, 5013, Really and Victory Road are among the most remarkable ones, visibly highlighting the precious, gracious, rare and creative traces of originality that this fantastic musician, Adam Boffa, aka ambinate, inserts into his music, giving a vigorous injection of innovation and fresh air into the scene. A powerful creative force that can really do the difference in the contemporaneous scenario of electronic music, generating and combining in an audacious and amazingly surprising way several different styles, genres and subgenres, and daringly exposing a new order for harmonies to impose themselves over the rhythms, Adam Boffa’s ambinate has everything that it takes to be considered the next new name of electronic music. If not globally, locally, to say the least. Nevertheless, this record is designed to break barriers and surpass boundaries. It is so groundbreaking free, enthusiastically fresh, poetically renovating and melodically reinvigorating, that not to recognize the qualities of this album should be regarded as a heresy. This is an outstanding, amazing, defining and unique work. If electronic music profusely reinvented by dubstep harmonies, reverberating softly with melodic and vibrating tones is your thing, you shouldn’t miss this record. It was made especially for you. Listen for yourself, and dare to say I’m wrong!
