DOXA - Posterity
Review: DOXA - Posterity
The Berlin based electronic artist and producer, DOXA presents his latest single, “Posterity.” Combining various aspects of downtempo, minimal beat and experimental sounds, DOXA creates an atmosphere unlike anything else.
Opening the track is a glitch effect that has an interesting layer of texture and rhythm. As the song carries on, an intimate string section appears and gives the track another complex and unexpected sound. What I deeply appreciate about the arrangement and approach of this track is how it doesn’t follow a set guideline and each instrument is introduced just when it feels right. Eventually a minimal beat finds its way into the mix, picking up the sense of rhythm but still adding even more beauty to this already gorgeous song.
Yu Yi is the result of a year of ‘figuring out my sound.’ Aside from the emotional attachment I have for this piece of music it really was a series of trail and errors of finding the right musicians, getting the right tone and producing it to a place that I was happy with it.
Enjoy these new hallucinations from no known author; a machined mega-puzzle of miscalculated patterns, automatic failures and lost coffee house betas.

The way the track breathes is quite unique - stopping and going, allowing the piano melodies to find their place. Underneath these melodies is the sounds of the outdoors - birds chirping and a light breeze passing by.
The piano melodies that echo through Andrew Gialanella’s meditative piece, “Drift” are incredibly breathtaking and provide a comforting atmosphere for anyone who listens.
And then there’s the unique way Tourist integrates vocal samples - it’s as if they become an instrument all on their own, floating throughout the track giving another beautiful layer of depth to the already astounding song.
There’s something about the vocal melodies that transports me back to warm summer evenings where there was a care in the world.
This song aims to provide a progressive listen that mimics the wonder of seeing this event for the first time.
The song features a colorful melody that bounces throughout the song and echoes a feeling of hope and inspiration.
Liam J Hennessy’s latest track, “Emerge” is quite the sonic piece as it features multiple layers of well crafted instrumentation that will transport the listener to another time and dimension.
