WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM GALACTICA TRANCTICA – FORGOTTEN FOREVER

Galactica Tranctica is the electronic music brainchild of Telford-based musician Jason Poole. Characterised by pulsating beats, dynamic compositions and futuristic landscapes, his music boasts the unwavering ability to captivate audiences, transporting them to a world beyond reality.

GALACTICA TRANCTICA

His latest project, Forgotten Forever, features seven instrumental trance anthems. The action ignites instantly, with the first track Antigravity laying on thick, undulating basslines beneath shimmering synth sequences that occupy every frequency.  

Next up is Crystal Girl, with vast atmospheric qualities that transpire through ceaseless hi-hats and keyboard motifs. The unwavering beat is contagious as Galactica Tranctica’s rhythms soar to adopt a super-club soundscape.

Visuals start to surface as the album induces a synaesthesia-type state. Forgotten Forever calls forth a tunnel of shapes and colours, all luminescent and glistening as if under a psychedelic microscope. Its lack of percussion compliments the lush sonic sound bath created by the layered synths.

Kyoto possesses a darker tone with minor chord progressions backed by syncopated percussion, while Utopia is quite the opposite of that, embracing higher frequencies and an ethereal introduction. Both progress in a balanced but impactful way; no single climax is met, but rather lots of little embellishments that ebb and flow throughout.

The final track is a remix of Forgotten Forever, in which harsh tones are muted to end on a soothing listening experience.

Though instrumental, this album tells an entrancing story through pretty yet haunting melodies. It may not be detectable to the naked ear, but that’s the beauty of it – you can interpret it in your own way.
