Hinkstep is an electronic ambient musical project from Gothenburg, Sweden. A Generation Lost in Space is the project’s fifth and most recent album to date, having being released in June 28. With eight tracks, being them Like A Mirror, Within Your Echoes, A Little Tree, Blend In With The Crowd, A Generation, Lost I Ft. Saimiri, N Space and Easily Distracted, a little more than one hour long, what we have here certainly is a fantastic and superbly well produced masterpiece. Eager to be considered one of the great representatives of the genre, certainly it is one of the more exciting and thoroughly groundbreaking albums the genre has ever produced in this century.
With a central poignant device perfectly aligned in the sphere of circular rhythms rearranged in homogeneous cyclic patterns, overdeveloped under mesmerizingly cadenced gears of protuberating calmness, the music streams a beat of rising tones, under a dissident flow of sonorous dissonance, relying in the confluence of harmonies – masterminded by a vigorous sense of completeness – to assure the central axis of its rhythms to navigate under a precise sense of cohesion. With a calm and detailed resonance that converges to a path of exhilarating harmonies, that can stay on the verge of rapture while being overtly serene at the same time, A Generation Lost in Space manages excitingly to arrange the traditional old school elements of the genre, while at the same time aggregates new ones, with a soft sense of deliberate originality, that composes altogether an over the top masterpiece, absolute in its own peculiar sphere of devotional artistry.
Even the more calm tracks are filled with an elemental purpose of harmonic sensibility, delineating a sense of poetic dissolution that works within the music, ostensibly sculpting a colony of rhythms not just beautiful, but exceedingly lucid and pure, as vivid as a colorful rainbow in the eyes of a supernova. Listening to this album can really be a different experience, as you can travel a journey one hour long throughout the whole universe, reimagining your soul through solar landscapes, in a vast configuration of conspicuous nothingness, immerging your heart in an everlasting sense of wonderful sensibility and visible introspection.
With its more progressive layout, and a multidimensional shape of marvelous sonorous digression, A Generation Lost in Space is a majestic album, able to fill all the gaps usually left aside by the more ordinary works done in the genre. With electronica elements that persists, and also build slowly a curiously sentimental taste of consistency within the harmonies, this album is way above the usual ground normally found in this kind of music. With several different elements that dilute and create contrasting nuances to an already monumental style, Hinkstep has a progressive and experimental approach that sets his work aside, in a whole new, different level, with a very unique categorization. So, if you like creative ambient music, with chillout harmonies and experimental elements added to it, you have to listen to this amazing work. You will be astounded, that is for sure!
