melchior sultana is back on his own profound sound with another cascading celebration of sheer musicality and sunkissed dancefloor dreams for sunsets that never end. if -timeless- doesn t transport you to a balmy, carefree state of mind then you should probably see a doctor - every inch of yearning synth, guitar, bass and beat is tenderly engineered for pure escapism. -the message- has a similarly rich sound bank, but it adopts a duskier mood that ever so slightly edges towards the club instead of the terrace. -i m serious- skips past the peak of the night and beckons you straight through to the after party - equal parts seduction and wind down for dancers with the mediterranean sun in their soul.
