06 May New: Scripts E.P From Calm Drama AKA Rob Webster
The Scripts E.P
3 years after his debut album, Rob Webster AKA Calm Drama returns with a fierce 4 track E.P that combines his recent influence of Retro-Wave, Techno and 90’s Trance influences.
“I heard the piano”
Is the opening track which samples the dialogue between Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling from last years Bladerunner 2049.
This track is a mix of retro-wave and a dramatic eerie breakdown which leads into a full on Euphoric Trance crescendo.
Is a melodic Techno groove that has a solid electro tinged bassline that weaves in and out of an arpeggio styled synth riff that carries itself a way into the cosmos which peaks with an orchestral breakdown combined with the 2001 Space Odyssey conversation with
Hal and his human counterpart.
“Visions Of Eckhart”
The 3rd composition takes Robs euphoric trance styles into a more darker sinister area with the inclusion of dialogue
from the movie Jacobs Ladder. The use of filtered synth leads and a driving arpeggio bassline make this an uplifting but thought provoking affair.
“You Invited Me”
The final track, borrows from David Lynch’s movie Lost Highway with the mystery man scene. Again accompanied by a riff that is almost reminiscent of Faithless and their anthem Insomnia, but with a more mild approach.
All 4 tracks are available to download on soundcloud check out Calm Drama for this truly unique sound blending that old vibe with a modern twist.
