Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, producer Altvater proven a reliable source of downtempo electronica over the past 18 months or so.
His flair for fusing cinematic electronica, trip hop, and dark synthwave is marked by a deft ability to blend colour and warmth to a glacial but imperious ambience – as evidenced by his output thus far. Latest single ‘Even Young’ is of a similar high standard.It is an elegant, moody and emotive journey propelled along a steady drumbeat through a mellow veil of cinematic, ambient atmospheres. It is lush and dreamy as a delicate strum and ambient sounds set the clam tone as exquisite vocals add a lift while a flourish of warm keys and winds brings some illumination. It is rich and textured, deeply emotive and calming; it is a beautiful and meditative track, and one that is rather easy-on-the-ear too.
