"On ‘Machiavella’, Involved open the curtains to a widescreen electronic classic. One part ’90s IDM gravitas, one part cosmic electronica, one part driving sci-fi soundtrack, the song pulses with drama and ambience across its five-and-a-half-minute run time.
‘Machiavella’ is taken from Involved’s debut album REVOLVING MAZE, on which the duo fuse the psychedelic sounds of ’70s kosmische with ’80s electronic and more modern ambient styles, creating evocative, cinematic music. However, rather than being revisionist, the duo curate fresh sounds from a musical palette that spans 40 years. Lush synth tones are deployed with an innate sense of melody, leading the listener through widescreen narratives of enviable scope. With Revolving Maze, the title says it all: this is complex, engrossing music that transforms with each spin.”
REVOLVING MAZE will be released on September 19th, 2014 through Hidden Shoal
