It is difficult to obtain a following in music. It is all the noise- literally- that just starves for the attention and desires some greater sense of exposure. For some, the knowing that the music is not being listened to on a massive scale is enough to take them away from it forever. Constant Swimmer understands that popularity is not an obligation- that notoriety, respect, and love for the music must be earned. And it can only really be earned the old-fashioned way.
Sure, a lot of electronic music is one step away from being the backbone to a Pitbull song or Katy Perry ballad. Filled with 80's-fueled synths, disco backbeats, and cheesy house melodies, few electronic artists really want to escape the cliches that ravage their chosen region of music.
Constant Swimmer makes down-tempo house electronica. Though his music is purely technologically divine, there is enough texture and richly layered instrumentation to make them diverse and open-ended. The artist’s EP Dream State seems to excel in this middle ground between the rhythmically pulsating and the dreamy and atmospheric.
The best of Constant Swimmer’s sound comes from his buildups. The excellently crafted ‘Infinitely Interesting’ may be a bit pompous in title, but it assuredly presses in a state of constant tension and build. The lead piano-esque melody is exquisite and it drops away to be picked up moments later. The song moves through passages, and this gets us at the heart of the style.
You get a sense that Constant Swimmer is running true with the moniker- the songs exist in this constant state of flux, as if his ADD-addled mind gets bored of one pattern and wants to introduce a new one as if thinking the listener is bored as well. This could be alienating, but it could also be brilliant. The songs evolve and change form, and at no time does a melody overstay its welcome. Many electronic artists get confident in a single idea and run it to the ground, creating a track or EP that is as repetitive as, well, a Katy Perry song.
There is an assured sense of tension in each of the tracks on this wonderful EP. Some songs pull more from a world of thick bass-heavy hip-hop (a la ‘Imaginalias’) and others dive and swoon in an imaginatorium of vocalized textures and unrestrained beauty (Woh Nim Ha). The EP’s cover accentuates this overall dreamy aesthetic, and you feel as if Constant Swimmer is trying to tell you something about yourself- about the state of dreaming, about the possibilities of electronic music- about what makes a song pulse ebb and flow in all the right ways without ever falling into any one single direction. ‘Dream State’ is a radiant collection deserving of some non-obligated and forced attention. - Culturetease.com
