It’s a rare occurrence listening to an album that really moves you, and it’s usually even more rare that it’s an electronic music album. Monolink’s debut Amniotic album is a refreshing body of work living in a world mostly barren of musical creativity.
Out just a week ago, the record was released via Embassy One in Germany, and it represents a clear and well thought-out passage of thought from the Berlin-based singer, songwriter and guitarist. Amniotic isn’t the first group of songs in Monolink’s wide-reaching discography; it follows his Burning Sun EP in 2017 and, even earlier, his The End EP in 2015.
The eleven-track album, self-admittedly a tribute to nature, is the first full-length LP from the artist and acts as a blank page for him to record his most emotional thoughts over timeless melodies and thumping productions ranging from festival tent tech house to late-night headphone jams for when you’re most in your feelings.
Here’s what Monolink had to say about the record:
“EPs are popular with most producers and DJs in the electronic music scene. But I come from a band background and albums are unmatchable for me. I’m a huge fan of listening to large bodies of work from start to finish and taking a plunge into the world the artist has created. Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” is an example of an album that still fascinates me to this day.”
