◆【Trace Of A Dream】紹介文

ソリッドなリズム・メインキングとポップかつ叙情性をともなうメロディーセンスが光るエレクトロニックサウンドを特徴とするプロデューサー塚原啓によるソロ・プロジェクトrakia、本作は2016年10月リリースした1stアルバム『Eclectic Color』以来約2年半振りとなる待望の2ndアルバム!


M1/6/9ではmarucoporoporo、M2/4/11/12ではSmany、M3ではHiroe、M5/7ではLayla Tomomi Sakai、M8ではTakara Arakiがボーカルで参加。

オープニングを飾るタイトル曲でmarucoporoporoが参加した「Trace Of A Dream」、Takara Arakiが参加したM8「Silence, Warm & Bright」、Smanyが参加したM11「Sea Of Stars」では、タイトなビーツとポジティブな雰囲気のトラックにそれぞれの優しく洗練された歌声が絡み非常に叙景深い楽曲に仕上がっている。
またSmanyが参加したM2「Passage」とM4「Winter Flower」ではSmanyの可憐な歌声に合った哀愁感が非常に魅力的である。
一転し、Layla Tomomi Sakaiの歌声に合ったrakiaの特徴の1つでもあるブラックネス~ファンクネスなアプローチを感じさせるM5「Dimples」とM7「Moments」をはじめ、収録全13曲全てが濃厚であり個々の出来映えも素晴らしい楽曲群の集合体としての見事なアルバムに結実している。

Comments on "Trace Of A Dream" by artists
The title "Trace of a dream" is a special word for me. Why do not you use electronic sounds and vocals to approach dream memories and reality bridges ...?
The challenge to the vocal album was the theme of this time and it was also the source of music creation.
Because it was because I was convinced that voices played an important role playing a role in the whole phenomenon (time passage) that can be felt from songs, not just parts of music.
Under such a concept, we gathered various fragments of sounds as a work while inspiring from the scenery of a visiting destination, historical masterpieces (Yokoyama Taiki, Kano Kanoi, Millet, Monet, Munch) It was.
