Breaking Through is a two-part debut album by Acid James. Both parts are built around a natural soundscape, using recorded samples of James' travels as he DJed for the past two years. Designed to be a perfect listening experience, the longest hour-long experimental journey is infused with out of place rhythms, conflicting sounds, and easy breaks. James' passion for music and club culture still drives the underlying pulse of each track.
The Breaking Through album is a euphoric psychedelic experience, with each track taking the listener on their own sonic journey. James' love for electronics grew from a young age. Through solid arrangements and solid programming, this single becomes a vehicle for reverential music that manages to spill out enough ideas from the artist himself to shake off the high era, allowing it to exist in its own right as credible.
Altogether, this single is as experimental as it is intense and addictive, it takes over oneself like a sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. In addition, Acid James has become a recognized artist and collaborator throughout his career, counting on millions of streams on platforms with his distinctive catalog.
We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this album is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
