We got a taste of Moltonic’s sound with his Folders EP when we interviewed him back in September 2019 (video below) – so it’s great to hear more. Lucid Dreams continuously provides an elegant arrangement of enchanting melodies and beats. With a narrative not unlike that of Four Tet, Caribou & Tourist, it’s a story of unquantized rhythms and organic bell-like melodies that brings an aura of calm with it.
Lucid dreams has it all.
We asked Moltonic a few questions to understand more behind the creation of Lucid Dreams
What was the main idea behind this release? Is there a narrative, or story throughout the EP?
When I start a new project I never follow a specific direction but instead I go where my inspiration takes me in that moment. After having created a few drafts of the tracks that you can now hear on the EP I noticed there was a common thread to all the songs, which was this dreamy atmosphere and feel. Once I realised that, I started following this direction more consciously adding more elements to follow that same vibe and this is how ultimately the whole idea behind this EP has evolved.
Who has been inspiring you this year?
I’ve been listening to a whole lot of music as always and every single thing you listen to has an influence on you, whether you realise it or not. One of my favourite albums of the year is probably “Lys” by Christian Löffler (check it out) but I’ve been listening to a lot of the usual suspects as well such as Apparat, Bonobo, Jon Hopkins, Thom Yorke and many more artists I came across while listening to random electronica playlists on Spotify.
What can we expect from Moltonic over the rest of 2020 and 2021?
We can definitely expect more music, I plan to start working on new material very soon and we’ll see what direction I’ll take this time. Like I mentioned before, I just start with throwing out ideas and then I look back and see what is the general vibe and what can I do to take it to the next level.
