treasureseason from Norwich in England is the ‘dancing in a trance’ duo of David Powell and Jess Bartlet.
One thing I can assure you of with treasureseason is to turn up the bass, as the duo play much of their music in the upper octaves and without the boost of a sub-woofer you will miss much of the value. Is it dance, is it trance? A very valid question, but lean in close to your partner and move, I am sure you also will not be able to ascertain who is holding up whom, but, your body will be flowing in time with the electronic pulses.
treasureseason produce music which flows inside the mind with unsettling beats as the sounds skip across tempos, ensuring the listener stays alert to the tempestuous confusion, yet, the out-put simultaneously wrests to a continual flow of notes to which the muscles react of their own accord.
The drum-loops are set to a tempo which discombobulates the electronic notes, which gives the compositions their intrigue. A vocal floats gently betwixt the patterns of sound as treasureseason – seek at once to calm and confuse. You know what – for its very variance, there is more than a kernel of added value to the world of music and kudos to the duo for experimenting with the disparities of the timing.
Now – I am off to find out who is holding up whom as the two of us flow around the room accompanied by treasureseason…
