...blurred memories from a bygone age...
Here is a google translation (French to English) of a a review by lesondesparasites.blogspot.fr
LAST BOSS is a type of ambient electronica project, originally from Britain orchestrated by one man, Tate McNeil. Currently in China, the Mancunian already offers a rich discography that asserts a true auditory continuity and a marked approach.
Minimal but with multiple influences, especially with the Asian touch borrowed from his adopted country. The whole is often subtle while remaining in a serene atmosphere without necessarily grand melodies and based on repetition.
Chronicle - audio memories symbolizes an acoustic tribute to Manchester, to remember, to live sounds of a period, exploring time and find themselves catapulted into the melancholy mood of the late 80's and early 90's.
A sense of homesickness for the artist, but gives its own vision and an atmosphere flowing through his veins. Propose to relive her memories in hearing an alternative approach to the scenes of the time and those usually affiliated to the city.
This mini concept album, split into 6 tracks, impresses with its consistency, strength to block, to develop a logical and rational universe. The sounds fit together to form a sincere frame, never aggressive and sets a particular time. The soundscapes sail through various crackling, like a dim light making their way in a light and nostalgic fog. The canvas resonates and vibrates pleasantly, always in tone and appropriateness, not too much, but it takes a real mastery of space and spectrum that allows us to be directly involved in listening.
A set of harmoniously developed constructions which manages to surprise us with the first of the pieces. This dull, deep bass that vibrates returning regularly, loops that evolve slowly to allow the moment to ask but especially the memory, this brilliant and intelligent minimalism that runs through the album, and done brilliantly this made it sound so mesmerizing.
