about

Serphのアルター・エゴ、Reliq(レリク)の2ndアルバム。

今作では、前作で見られた優美で官能的なエキゾチシズムはそのままに、ジューク、トラップなどのゲットー・ミュージックや、日々刷新される様々なベース・ミュージックを咀嚼し、よりリズム面での多様性を押し進めた結果、生来の恐るべきポップ・センスも相まって、ダンス・ミュージックとしての実用性とヘビー・リスニングに耐えうる複雑さを凝縮させた、全くもって摩訶不思議なトリック・スター的電子音楽が誕生しました。

Reliq曰く、アルバム『Metatropics』のテーマは、「気候変動の激化していく世界における新たなトロピカルミュージック」。この作品は、コンクリート・ジャングルの行く末、SF化が加速する現実世界の為のサウンドトラックです。溢れ出るアイデアと実験精神をもってエレクトロニック・ミュージックの無限の可能性を証明してみせた、Reliq大いなる飛躍の一枚。


The 2nd album of Reliq, an alter-ego of Serph, released in 2014.

If Serph's music rings from utopia, Reliq's music sounds from a real-life metropolis. It is a documentary rather than fantasy, joy rather than fascination, sentimentalism rather than fairy tale. Reliq's music also affects the body in a dance music-like way.

The new work has the same graceful and sensual exoticism, combined with a mixture of ghetto music such as juke, track, and a variety of the latest bass musics, with a stronger emphasis on rhythm. As a result of such mixture with the prodigious pop identity, the work has become a condensation of dance music's practicality and the complexities of heavy listening, a trickster-like, mysterious electronic music.

According to Reliq, the theme of his new album "Metatropics" is a "new type of tropical music in the midst of a global climate change". It is a sound-track for us, living in an increasingly sci-fi world, the future of this concrete jungle. Witness Reliq's infinite ideas and experimental spirit, leaping into the endless possibilities of electronic music.
