Masoud - Here We Go [feat. Hannah Ray] / SkywardAVA037 - May 9th, 2011
Masoud Fouladi Moghaddam - that's the full name of Andy Moor's latest musical discovery - and a highly talented one! It's been only two years since Masoud first revealed his skills. In the meantime, his catalogue contains stunning pieces like 'Blinded' with Laurie and 'Leave It All Behind' featuring the stunning voice of Josie. This time, he's back with a marvelous E.P. on AVA Recordings.
On prog-rocking masterpiece 'Here We Go', a familiar voice can be heard. Hannah Ray, who already added some of her very own magic to the strong tracks of Shogun and Tritonal, lent Masoud her voice, making the track sounding bittersweet and dreamy. This effect becomes even stronger when listening to the 'Ginatron Orchestral Mix'. The original's prog-elements changed places with down-tempo beats, lovely orchestra-sounds and a choir to back up Hannah's voice.
'Skyward' rides a sound quite contrasting to the EP's flipside. The gentle build up of weapon of prog leads you directly into an addictive synth-harmony, fading into tight beats and refined effects. Another quality Masoud release, ready to surprise you!
