Fall: Whether it’s the anticipation of crisp weather and the beautiful colors of the season, or the physical act of falling, or the fall of governments or falling in love … Fall carries a world of resonance for such a brief word.
This is a set that starts out in lazy lounge mode and only really ignites for the first time at the Gramatik track in sixth position, and again later with the deep emotion of Mu-Getsu … considering the darker tone of most selections in this set, it is apparently all about that bottom end … the bass heavy arrangements, the touch of lyrical gloom, the suggestion of menace … it's where we find ourselves today. … and then it swells up and out with the closer, a danceable version of the main title theme from Michael Mann's The Last of the Mohicans. Taken altogether, there's something elegiac there, something in its scope and sense of loss, like a fall from heedless grace.
