House music is probably one of the most instrumental styles by which an artist is able to constantly innovate new sounds, and sub-genres. The music not only possesses the ability to electrify a dance party but it offers an international appeal that may be considered second to none. It is truly a universal style, that when mastered, delivers an unprecedented amount of cultural relevance in music. Dance music is driven most often not by the lyrics or words, but by the conscious expression of energy and emotion through sound. This type of music requires a deeper examination into the style, initiating dialog and provoking thought. While many dance music composers and producers narrow their scope to one particular sound, there are few that expand their reach far beyond continental lines to create noteworthy and inspiring music.
International DJ and Producer Glender is one such artist who has successfully garnered worldwide acclaim for his gifted artistry. After eight years, the highly regarded artist has released his most recent album titled ‘Lost in My Musical Memories’, a project that is jam-packed with heart thumping, high energy tracks. The album, written and produced by Glender for Niraya World, is an eclectic mix of original, experimental sounds and styles that take listeners on a virtual excursion across the world’s soundstage. The track “Far Away from Home”, is a poignant work, with a fitting title that captures the energy of the album. Listeners will truly feel that they have ventured away to parts unknown with each and every single one of Glender’s tracks.
Through each song on ‘Lost in My Musical Memories’, Glender captures the nuances in culture from various walks, in life, places, and faces throughout the album. Opening with the track “South Africa”, Glender welcomes fans with a bouncy drum beat, while incorporating some realistic animal and nature sounds, literally taking listeners into the outdoors. The track maintains a steadily high energy beat, later presenting soulful female vocals and wind instruments. “La Vida” , another exuberant track, also utilizes an infectious drum beat incorporated with Spanish male vocals to present a global sound mix while “Latin Side” is a more progressive sounding piece where the clave collides with jazzy piano chords.
Glender displays his diversity as an artist on tracks such as “Zi Zhu Xiao” where he transports listeners to the continent of Asia where the sounds offer a nostalgic ambiance, inspiring not only the audio but visual use of imagination to appreciate the cultural elements of the music. Glender works proficiently to blend multiple elements and effects into a remarkably powerful listening experience. Without uncovering all of the many surprises that Glender has in store for fans, we would certify this album as a digital “must have”.
