Dreamy deep house textures dive deep into the loudest parts of your mind and ease the tension with music producer Lycoriscoris’s new album Chiyu. Released via Anjunadeep, this album consists of eleven soothing and cathartic tracks that leave you feeling much more relaxed and peaceful in a matter of minutes. Definitely the perfect music for a cozy evening with a good book and a glass of wine.
Lycoriscoris shares his thoughts about the album: “Memories and retrospection are the fundamental concept from which I take inspiration to create my music. My own artist name is a wordplay based on a flower, the Lycoris. In Japan, it’s often found near cemeteries and for this reason, people usually don’t like it. But one day, searching in the Flower Languages List, I discovered that besides being connected to unpleasant things like death, it also means “I’m looking forward to see you again” and so I realized how this flower also hides a beautiful and positive meaning. I think my music, including this album, has the same kind of dualism as Lycoris. The meaning of the title of this album is “recovery” or “healing” in Japanese. For some problems in life, they will eventually recover, but it’s not easy. I wanted to portray that process.”
Definitely a gentle soul by the sounds of it, this DJ proves that the softest of sounds can have staying power. He has been commended for his craftsmanship by names like Nick Warren, Joris Voorn, Hernan Cattaneo, Michael Mayer, and Eelke Kleijn to name a few. If you are a fan of more upbeat house textures, you may be changing your playlist with softer beats after getting a taste of this new album.
