Aril Brikha seems to be on a roll. With Dance Of A Trillion Stars (MUSIQ 249LP) he just recently released a laidback ambient album full of melodic slow-motion enthusiasm. Now, shortly after, the Berlin based producer drops Prisma, a record for dancers on the deeper side of the dancefloor. Aril Brikha confesses about the secrets behind his newly hectic release schedule that made him publish two albums within half a year. Since the late 1990s, his music has melded techno and house, seducing club music enthusiasts around the world. Influenced by different kinds of electronic music -- from Depeche Mode and Jean-Michel Jarre to Robert Hood and Underground Resistance -- his music dances between straight up club tracks and deep unwound moving arrangements. He already released EP's on labels like Kompakt, Poker Flat, his own label Art Of Vengeance, as well as an album for Derrick May's Transmat imprint and a long-player for legendary Peacefrog Records. After two EPs for Mule Musiq in 2016 and early 2019, and the ambient album Dance Of A Trillion Stars earlier in 2020, he now releases an all dance track album loaded with eight arrangements, that he produced during night time on his old hardware equipment which he started using again after years of them being tucked away in his Stockholm basement. His new tunes, seductive with warm chords and pleasant melodies, tell a different story. They are all propelling, while staying somehow calm and avoid average party hysteria. Precisely produced tracks between house and techno that favor the warm soul of dance music. Underneath the grooves, each track rolls out some ambient vibes and veils of trance, dancing to delicate hi-hat shuffles and starry chords. "My '90s stuff was very Detroit influenced, not in the hard techno meaning but more towards the soulful part of it. My 2000 productions were very melodic driven and I was trying to see how far I can push a 'trance' sound without making trance music. The newer stuff is probably mix of both," Brikha says about Prisma and its power to unite different generic zones into one charmingly warm dance journey. Together with Dance Of A Trillion Stars it introduces a touching insight into a producer's soul, that did not get lost in his very own creation of melodic electronic sci-fi dance-not-dance music.
