Miles Ellis is that kind of artists who do not stitch without thread, who know what they are doing at all times and do not leave anything to chance, although sometimes their decisions may seem unusual or out of place. And if in addition, after a consecration in the underground, we see him doing his thing with Uncharted, it leaves us even more surprised.
The album as a whole manages to provide introspection, an absorbing twilight energy and light, and that closes an album that knows how to turn musical pulp into a refreshing ambrosia juice. The more the record is listened to, the more difficult it is to place it in a specific geographical location. His music seems to never solidify, to be a flow of sounds and impressions that never seem to remain fixed in place or memory, like a perfume or a quick vision of a body in motion, to the point of postulating itself as one of the true values of the future of meek and shiny electronics.
The songs that are recorded on this album demonstrate the particular way of understanding Miles Ellis sound, located at the opposite end of the commercial, the generic, what works: what he does is, on the contrary, a kind of unstable magma of pulsations and radiance, of melodic strokes and blurred textures, pursuing a serene, spiritual, almost ascetic expression. All those languages and influences from which he was nurtured dialogue on this album, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.
The idea behind this album refers us to one of the crucial attributes of music, and that is its inexhaustible ability to generate states of mind that protect us at all times. Its meaning remains in the hands of lovers of electronic music, beyond the dance floor and all hedonism.
Uncharted can and should be heard as a piece of timeless music, which conveys a positive idea in times of conflict, and its aesthetic appeals to the most basic, deep and receptive of the spirit. Miles Ellis, in short, designs a wide and fragile sound to listen and feel from the deepest.
Miles Ellis mastery of language is total, and here they have once again delved into the past to draw inspiration from another verse, more forceful and melancholy, but no less evocative. All in all, we can safely say that this Uncharted is on the verge of excellence.
