Audioglider – “Accidental Beauty” – Release April 21st 2014+Mixtape Download


Audioglider - Accidental BeautySection Records reboots and opens 2014 with the release of Audioglider’s long-awaited debut long-player “Accidental Beauty”.

Audioglider a.k.a. Roberto Sodano has developed a strong reputation among the downtempo cognoscenti over the past 5 years, with releases on labels as respected and varied as Global Underground, Morrison Recordings, Renaissance, Exceptional Records and the German netlabel group FOEM before finding a permanent home at Section Records, who released the beautiful “Summer Rainstorm EP” in May 2013. He has garnered support from all quarters of the downtempo community in that time, notably The Big Chill, Ben Mynott of Fluidnation Radio and influential tastemaker blog and label, astrangelyisolatedplace, and the broad appeal of his musical style has attracted regular attention of such legends of the house scene as Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo and Glenn Morrison.

Developed with thought and care over a number of years, “Accidental Beauty” is a masterpiece of cross-genre downtempo that touches on many styles, each track evoking an individual response yet woven together into a lush journey that sounds balanced and cohesive as a whole. Drawing influences from the gamut of downtempo styles going right back to the 1980s, here you’ll find echoes of Cocteau Twins, 4AD, Boards of Canada, Nightmares On Wax and Ulrich Schnauss but bestowed with an intelligent contemporary edge through Roberto’s refined production techniques. From the cinematic opening with the ironically-named “End Titles”, through the subtle and intricate 21st century funk of Fluid Motion (with Florida based artist, D-Step) and My Tru Blood, via heavenly interludes like Dynamic Uno and Just Sound, before ending up in pure euphoric territory with Disappear, Polydirective (with Chicago’s Mucci) and the final track Cortexaphan, the listener is carried on a magic carpet ride through an ever-changing but always beautiful musical landscape.

Roberto’s musicianship and exquisite musical taste is evident throughout, blending guitars and electric bass with ethereal synths and high-definition beats with consummate skill that sounds effortless, never forced. The first essential album of 2013 and destined to join the ranks of the classics, you need “Accidental Beauty” in your collection.
