Today the lauded Brooklyn-based DJ & producer Brian Cid is set to release his much-anticipated debut album Meteorite Man on the highly-respected label Balance Music. Continuing his rapid ascent to the forefront of progressive techno, Cid cements his superstar credentials with this latest effort. An absolute masterclass in terms of musicianship and production, Meteorite Man is a swirling tour de force in the genre of techno. Out now the album marks the culmination of a groundbreaking year for the much vaunted producer.
Going further than ever before, Meteorite Man offers a stunning ten-track masterpiece that takes listeners on an immersive musical journey filled with his lush and signature melodic style. The title track opens with eight minutes of cinematic deep space ambiance that is wholly spellbinding and begins the cosmic voyage with perfectly crafted sci-fi details. “Soledad” features soft, rolling drums carrying on the exploration as scintillating synths hang in the air above with real poise and purpose. The exquisite “Limits” is a dancefloor aligned track but is just as epic with its expansive synth work and “Ascenso” is another majestic 10 minutes of enthralling and progressive synths. To contrast, “Friendly Strangers” gets a bit darker, with heavier moods and drums all speaking of inner turmoil.
The second half of the album touches on dramatic cosmic storms on “Amman Dolore” and powerful drum programming on “Quest,” which is a marching groove with real menace. The absorbing “Eden” then lifts the spirit with beautiful celestial chords and keys that are filled with hope, “Liar Eyes” twists and turns on warm solar winds and “Doors of Perception” closes things out with another perfectly drawn out track of pensive drums and reflective synths that leave listeners adrift.
