Since the release of its sign-in Chapter at the start of the year, ‘Materia’ – Cosmic Gate’s “made for the clubs” (MIXMAG), “impressive”, “roots return” (DJ Mag) LP – has been rocking blocks & wowing crowds in all four corners. Through the project, Nic & Bossi have dug deep to musically define the very essence (or materia) of Cosmic Gate. They bring that to its summary, through Materia’s concluding Chapter. It’s available here.
Chapter.Two’s vanguard singles (‘Tonight’ (“ethereal”, “stunning” – Dancing Astronaut), the
tech-tipped Markus Schulz-collab ‘AR’ & the emotionally stirring ‘Bigger Than We Are’) have
paved its summer-long road to release. They are now joined by six new, never-heard-before
With the cyber-synth futurism of ‘Noom’, counted among their number is the first studio-born
team-up with Super8 & Tab. There’s also the (says YourEDM) “sparse techno-like cut”,
“super-long built up chords” and “serious mainline soar” of the Tomorrowland-smashing
‘No Strings Attached’, together with Arnej.
Song-based collaborations are in no short supply either, with new music formed around many a
prominent voice. Making not one, but two appearances on the album, ‘If Not Now’ and ‘Materia’s title track sees JES shining brighter than ever. The acidic bubble and radiating synths of ‘Someday’ marks a Chapter.Two recall for Alastor too, while ‘Sparks After The Sunset’ singer Sarah Lynn channels her soul into ‘Folded Wings’.
So, appetites’ whetted? Anticipation peaked!? Then await no more! The second Chapter of
Cosmic Gate’s 2017 album project is out, about and ready to musically carry you through to the end of the year. Cosmic Gate celebrates the release of Materia Chapter.Two at Exchange LA for Insomniac presents Awakening Fridays with a live performance by Jes and support from Alastor this 10/13. Buy tickets here.
