Oh man, this one is good. One of the members of Emeralds, Steve's been putting out some great synth albums over the years. Seen him live, nice and mellow dude IRL.

 

 

Steve Hauschildt’s grasp of synthesis reaches alchemical, intuitive levels of lushness in ‘Dissolvi’, keening towards a broadly appealing ambient-techno-pop sound without losing the enigmatic, abstract, deep space quality of previous efforts. It’s his finest achievement since striking solo from the influential Emeralds and, quite honestly, isn't a million miles away from late 90's IDM keeprs like Arovane's Atol Scrap. And on we go in circular motion...

idk...this guy’s synth programming is very tasteful, his mixes are always quite lush and cinematic...but his compositions are very boring to me. there’s no emotional dynamic, overall his records come off like sophisticated synth demos. It’s nice background music tho

This is very good. Much more focused and detailed than his earlier stuff.

The singles have been great, stoked to hear this in full. Been a big fan of his work for a while. Seems to me he was the one who reined in Mark McGuire’s more jammy tendencies.

Good for him.

I have a new “is this music good test”. I used to really enjoy getting coffee and reading a book. But all coffee shops are so normied out these days that the music they play makes me walk right out. I wish they played music that enhances a calm, thinking mood. This passes that test.
