Desert Trax is proud to present the newest sonic offering from Desert Dwellers, “Dive Into Forever.” Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe are unleashing another set of groundbreaking tracks on this EP. This time they have collaborated with the soulful songstress Ixchel Prisma, who added a major component to the overall enchantment of these tunes. Together they have seamlessly interwoven Ixchel’s spacious lyrics within the forward moving psychedelic atmospheres of the desert. Showcasing their versatility as sound designers, Desert Dwellers have significantly adapted and developed their production value to best suit and complement the voice that shines throughout.
The first song, “Dive Into the Core”, is overflowing with meditative modulations and a palpable poetic presence. Greatly influenced by the work of Phaeleh, the track begins with a gentle whisper that invokes the feeling of a lullaby. As it progresses, spacious synthesizers and a proliferation of pads filter in and out, providing a blissful background for Ixchel’s verses and catchy choruses. “Dive Into the Core” is a very archetypal composition that will garner affection and adoration for its lovely lyrics and script, edifying the mystical nature of musical mythos, and the rebirth symbolism of the phoenix rising from the ashes.
Harken back to the origin of Desert Dwellers and hear reborn the second song on this EP, which is a revamped rendition of one of their oldest and most beloved manifestations, “You Can See Forever.” The hypnotic dance vibe of this version of the tune will most certainly captivate any listener. The instrumentation and vibe is a lot more psychedelic compared to “Dive into the Core,” featuring a heavy dose of delayed FX, ethnic woodwinds and incredible incantations. When listening, It’s pretty hard to not imagine yourself wandering the desert with an endless moonlit horizon in front of you.
“Although it may only consist of three tracks, Desert Dwellers have outdone themselves with this EP. I assure you that it will only become more mesmerizing with every listen. As they continue to look within and redefine their signature sound, we can all prophesy that there will never be a Desert Dwellers album that will sound the same; that is the beauty of music beyond borders!” – Anthony Della Croce
