Vindicare - Pathfinder
Trance DJ/Producer Addz Milner has been writing and producing music since 2006, coming in and out of electronic music projects and different lineups. Back in 2011, Vindicare was first made, and under that moniker, he establish a dark psytrance project that he wanted to create something new with. For a while, however, he hung up the reigns to the project, but got back up on his horse and started once more this year. Which is why we have this single present.

Pathfinder puts out a great effort with, as stated above, trance elements hitting all over the place. Taking its time to really hit off, the first minute is fairly minimal with few touches to be found. It continues into a faster paced, electronic fest that stays light on bass, but decent with its samples. Synths soon come in, elevating the overall tracne predicament. However, they aren't flushed out in full form until after a long silence with samples occur, and hits back around the four minute mark. From here on out, the trance takes over, hitting left and right in every corner, but constantly moving with every twist and turn that occurs within the beat.

Along with the single, a club edit was included next to it. Definitely aiming to conquer the dance floors, this edit is faster paced, and doesn't take as long to get to the bulk of the song. An emphasis on a steady rhythm is notable, and the long pauses of minimal sound with samples is pretty much gone.

And, that's the end of that. Though there are only two songs with this single, it makes up for about fourteen, close to fifteen minutes of decent electronic music that doesn't stay the same, and switches around multiple times to embrace and caress its experimental nature. I'm glad this artist was able to come back to life rather than remaining dead.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
