Boss Axis - Bridge a divide

Melodic and groovy - that’s the distinguished sound of the two Thuringians Marcel and Thomas, aka Boss Axis, from Germany as in 2008 they decided to have a share in the electronic music scene. Their sound features warmth, pressure and especially harmony, on what they emphasize in particular. Their attention to detail is obvious. Recently, they were titled “ministers of melody”. The review about their latest album released in December entitled “Bridge a divide” is a splendid performances of Boss Axis like fireworks of euphoric moments.

Tracklist [Buy the album]

Their first tracks together, which attributed to their respective experience as solo artists, already had the potential to knock on the doors of relevant labels of the scene. After several digital offers, they received the opportunity for a vinyl-launch at their current home base “Parquet Recordings” whose boss is our friend Solee and that is with no doubt one of our favourite imprint. The foundation was built and many releases were to follow, including their biggest hits so far, “Orlando” and “Keep Going”.

Equally, their performances as a DJ-team are truly splendid moments of happiness, so it is no wonder that the congenial boys have been performing in almost every happening club as well as at one of the biggest and most popular open-air festivals in Europe - “Tomorrowland”, which was the highlight in 2012”! After releasing countless singles and remixes for worldwide well-known artists like Gui Boratto or Tom Novy and many others, it is time for their second album, filled with lots of new tracks, perfect for the club but also for one's own living room.

“Nevada” perfectly introduces the album, in the pure tradition of Boss Axis, with long layers and subtle pianos notes that will make you beat the rhythm. “Even temper” is a bit more monotone but in a positive way with deep vibes creating a great underground atmosphere. Then, “And nothing” brings to the album a more funky side because of the vocal. “Two hearts” evolves definitely in a Gui Boratto’s style notably because of its progression and its composition with long synths notes. Great end too. “Deepening”, the fifth track of the album is a comeback to the deep house side of the album, also bouncy with its long distance vocal.

“Challenger” and “Wondaland” are more confused, with lots of notes mixed together but there is something here very interesting, in the progression of the track that end almost in a hearing orgasm. Close your eyes. A new world is born. As weird as it can seem, they are probably the 2 best tracks of the album for me, notably in the musical story they share with us. A nice intro, with a rhythm that constantly grows before a conclusion in fanfare without limits and where you have to let your body move.

To conclude the album, “Since you’ve been gone” bring back a nice vocal that brings to life a track a bit flat let’s say. At the end, “Down home” is the great time to come back to a safer and warmer place: your home, with a very slow end to close the album gently and nicely.

As a bonus, in every CD you will find a download coupon. With this coupon you can download an additional unreleased track by Boss Axis for free!

Enjoy “Bridge A Divide” by Boss Axis! That’s all.
