Sonic Juncture – Can’t I Just Be EP Review

‘Can’t I Just Be?’

Sonic Juncture’s title track, “Can’t I Just Be?”, takes listeners on an introspective journey. The track’s intricate melodies and chilled-out house vibes make it perfect for any setting, whether you’re relaxing with headphones, dancing on an Ibizan terrace, or enjoying a sunny day in a Brighton beer garden. George and Josh have masterfully crafted a piece that feels both spiritual and tribal, showcasing their ability to tune out life’s distractions and restore equilibrium through music.

Beginning with a mesmerizing combination of chords and dubbed-out saxophone, the track immediately sets a serene yet complex tone. It’s easy to imagine this track featuring on a Nightmares On Wax or Zero 7 compilation, thanks to its sophisticated production and emotional depth. The layers of Latin percussion, echoed piano, and reverberated pads blend seamlessly, creating a top-tier chilled house music experience.

‘Magician’s Secret’

“Magician’s Secret” is a cosmic journey through proggy acid-house. Built on a dusty groove with a 303 bassline, this track instantly sparks a desire to dance. The ghostly, chemically-altered vocals add a hypnotic layer, making it a standout on the EP. The combination of bongo, cowbell, and trippy synths results in an atmospheric roller that’s perfect for peak-time play at any underground club or festival.

This track is a testament to the duo’s ability to experiment and innovate within the genre, making it a guaranteed dancefloor filler. If you find your dancefloor isn’t packed with this track, you might as well ask for your money back!

‘Can’t I Just Be? (Alton Miller Remix)’

Alton Miller’s remix of “Can’t I Just Be?” is a masterclass in organic electronic energy. Intricate details like clicks, clacks, and skipping hi-hats create a rich percussive landscape, while elongated horn notes and piano keys engage in a dreamlike conversation. Miller’s remix elevates the original, adding depth and a thunderstorm-like energy that is both captivating and refreshing.

‘Can’t I Just Be? (Acid Groove Mix)’

The Acid Groove Mix adds a shot of audible urgency to the serene original. The energetic acid line and complex percussion configuration elevate the track, making it perfect for those who need an extra boost in their day. It’s a shiny, happy place where chilled electronica meets a vibrant, upbeat rhythm.

End conclusion

Sonic Juncture’s “Can’t I Just Be?” EP is a remarkable journey through deep house and beyond. Each track offers a unique listening experience, showcasing the duo’s growth and innovation.
