Of The Trees – Dream Atlas
After a successful 2015, Of The Trees returns for his third release on Gravitas Music and his first full length album, “Dream Atlas”. The New England native stays true to his style; effortlessly, he weaves together pure, strong compositions with subtle complexities throughout the free LP. Memorable melodies and familiar hip-hop rhythms mesh perfectly to create these 9 tracks, which feature collaborations with Esseks, The OriGinALz, and The Digital Connection, plus remixes from CloZee and Perkualt0r.
The title track establishes a charming vibe as the start of the album, with delicate melody and a pleasing sampled atmosphere. Esseks lends his trademark wonky approach to “Business Tripping”, melting the two producer’s distinct stylings as one. Setting the bar for the most hype track on the album, “Kick Back” rumbles hard with it’s filtered alien babbling and intelligent beat structure. “Panama” tickles the ear with both intricate and smooth ingredients, while the inherently psychedelic “Puddled” playfully exhibits experimental ideas mingled atop heavy bass. CloZee’s remix of “Dream Atlas” showcases her graceful, international aesthetic which fits perfectly with the gentle harmony of the original. The seductive and smooth “6AM” takes the mood down a notch, providing a bit of breathing room before Perkulat0r’s remix rounds out the album with a minimal yet luscious Trap affair.
