ALBUM: Gabriel Le Mar - Among Trees I Want To Live out on Le Mar Production

Gabriel Le Mar's album created in the studio but all tracks carry the essence of being among trees. And just like the lives of trees the album is full of mystery. With a wide range of deep groovin tunes and shades of Dub "Among Trees I Want To Live" is spanning electro acoustic sound to meditative patterns this music exist somewhere in the landscapes you can listen and dance to. The album opener "Regenerative" is a deep ridin' tune driven by its deep mood and catchy guitar riffs while "Imagination Creates" hypnotically moves through dub chord driven spaces and unfolds its moving in depth groove. "The Living Green" takes us on a trip into melodic synth patterns that find their counterpart in the electric pad like guitars. "Wisdom of Resistance" carries echoes throught the magic mystical forest in an epic but deep and patient arrangement while "Electric Leaves" is tripping through a mysteriously harmonic soundspace. "Days In The Tree" follows the same path continuing that special atmosphere dipped with indian sounds which leads to "Network Of Life": a smooth moving Tech track that Gabriel Le Mar created in collaboration together with young new artist Joey K. "Outside Of Time" rounds up the album with a smooth deep shuffling beat an intense synth and ebow touched singing guitar moods. Sounds that don't exist in nature but they create an atmosphere of tender closeness to the trees.

"I have many years now of experience, obsession, music and things in my mind to work with. I`m a music producer and compose with my electronic setup, finding elements that fit together or make contrast, creating counterparts in atmosphere, mood, sound and arrangement, keeping balance in these elements and bringing all material together in the mix or on the visual set...
I follow my creative dream of experimenting, always trying something new and I hope it makes people wondering what you're up to. Music and ideas and it will always go on"

His latest album Among Trees I Want To Live is definitely the perfect chilling slow jamming and early morning after clubbing companion. Great atmosphere runs throughout the album with either deep pulsating techno basslines, tribal drums and minimal grooves or either chill out tracks with underneath abstract electro grooves and sweet smooth melodies, cool vocal samples and nature sonic effects. You can sense reggae influences and 80's electro pop touches with strong emotionally charged melodic content.
