What is the reason behind Jonny’s success?
Cybertherial - Luca's TAKE
Jonny Fallout’s Cybertherial is one beautiful, yet strange album: definitely retro-sounding, but also very dance-y and modern! I guess you could say it’s like some kind of a fusion between the EDM scene of the last few years and some electronic retro thing that makes it sound almost futuristic.
Jonny’s production of music is unique and unlike anything else, you have ever heard. He takes sounds that are usually dirtied to evoke the emotions of retro music and instead makes them vibrate with a dynamic and pristine quality.
The vocals are treated as melodic instruments, not as the message deliverer. They blend in perfectly with the dynamic soundscape of the tracks and add a sweet sensation to the mix.
The quality and vibe of the whole album is incredibly consistent from start to finish, creating a sonic experience that I never got bored of, no matter how many times I listened to it.
Cybertherial - Alex's take
Listening to Cybertherial, emotions from adolescence come back to mind. When you are looking for your identity through what you felt.
If you’re looking for a way to get in touch with your nostalgia, this album will help. It’s a mix of retro and dance songs that will remind you of the time when you were fifteen and trying to figure out who you are.
Sometimes, the use of voice and melody remind me of ATB and I’m taken to a place where I’m able to let go of the weight of my body and mentally fly over oceans or mountains.
Music has the incredible ability to evoke emotion and transport us to another place. It can make us feel nostalgic, or even fill us with joy.
The songs that I like the most, are:
- The number
- Phantom heart
All of these songs managed to stir up a sweet sense of solitude and help me get my head out of the troubles that were surrounding me. I was able to drift into an elysian state of mind and in a very sweet state of solitude, Softening my emotions and clearing the mind with new energies, ready to face the torments of the past, present, and future without fear.
Jonny Fallout’s Cybertherial is an album with tons of different genres blended in, but after listening to it, it will probably seem like you’ve been waiting your whole life for this music!
The synthwave present adds a retro-futuristic feel to the music, while the EDM adds the energy and the vocals add the sweetness, in a high-level production comparable with the best dishes that you’ll be glad you tasted.
