Widely-loved electronic maestro Gigi Masin returns with ‘Vahinè’ – a mini album of beautiful and distinct music that is unmistakably his, sounding better than ever. Masin always pours his heart into composing, but here it takes on a potent new level of heavy emotion – as it’s a tribute to his late wife, who sadly passed away last year. A future-retro dreamscape where stripes of early evening sun pour through partially closed Venetian blinds; kalimba, piano, and steel pans meet on the incredibly evocative ‘Marilene (Somewhere in Texas)’. The Balearic/Italo house heart of ‘Barumini’ throbs throughout a celestial epiphany, whilst ‘Shadye’ is a sun blinded ambient mirage where angelic voices and electric guitar intertwine before more heavenly music ensues on the trance-like ‘Malvina’. A heart-wrenchingly beautiful evocation of transitioning to the other side, ‘Valerie Crossing’ is Gigi’s compelling and inspirational take on death, with a vivid evocation of something spiritual, existential, and metaphysical. His exemplary approach shows decease not as a cause for despair, but as a philosophical and poetic exploration of where souls go when they leave their earthly bodies. Masin closes with ‘Vahinè’ – a twitchy, levitational piece of sublime deep techno, which transmits high-strength vibrations of powerful emotions. On both this track and the album of the same name, there s no pseudo-intellectual ambient posturing with cod academic angles tagged on; This is music of real substance, coming from a real place. It’s saturated with feelings but turns mourning into affecting art, and even a beacon of hope.
