This is the bold debut album from rising star Dosem. The Catalan producer behind such hits as "Silent Drop" and the sexy smash "Beach Kisses" unveils his futuristic vision on a double album comprised of "Dosem" and "Sendo," that take listeners from Girona's sultry shores to the throbbing heart of the world's best dancefloors. Officially four years in the making, Parallel is the product of a fascination with sound that stretches back to Dosem's childhood, when he tried to capture in music the images of his favorite sci-fi films. Though his methods have matured, there is a boyish sense of wonder that echoes through the album. A sense of joy and discovery underpins the glistening melodies of Parallel, taking listeners on a trip through wondrous realms of time, space and emotion. Part one, "Dosem," draws on past and present to project the listener into the future: a future where delicate yet propulsive techno tunes like "Tannhauser Gate" and "Silent Drop" sidle up and stir the dancefloor with a synth-plated swizzle stick. Like much of the finest electronic music of recent times, Parallel moves beyond the stereotype of machine music and boldly reclaims the heart and soul of techno. Standout track "True Elements" is a textbook example, marrying a glorious female vocal to a sharp, clean, almost stark skeleton of purist electronica. Elsewhere, Dosem delves into memory to recreate moments such as "Diagonal" -- a tuneful snapshot of a late-night walk along Barcelona's famous Avinguda Diagonal with a girlfriend. "Sendo" projects different elements of Dosem's musical identity. It delivers a modern twist on classic-sounding ambient electronica with tracks such as the Balearic-tinged "Distant Playgrounds" and fuzzily sensual offering "Your Skin." Other highlights include the euphoric optimism of "I Will Let" and the slinky Eastern atmospherics of "Children Of Yesterday." Despite the panoply of moods and sounds, there is a consistent thread of emotion that runs through Parallel, drawing its listeners into a world of vision and memories. "Every track talks about a moment, a memory, or a special person," Dosem explains. "If you go deep into each track, you suddenly find little love stories inside."
