Pantha du Prince – This Bliss [2007]

December 28, 2009

Album post #19.  Old news for some but new and glorious for me, Pantha du Prince‘s 2007 LP, This Bliss.  For a while I’ve been looking for something similar to the minimal house of The Field and Lindström and Pantha du Prince certainly fits the bill.  A German producer named Hendrick Weber, Pantha du Prince weaves intricate subtle lines through driving yet subdued beats.  Wind chimes and bells enter and retreat, steady beats gallop, rhymic taps change by the measure, and synths or strings arch over top.  Somehow this music makes me feel as if I’m soaring over an icy landscape and at the same time it fills me with warm excitement that keeps me exploring.  Newbies like me have two months to digest this album before Pantha du Prince‘s new album Black Noise comes out in early February.  If it’s anything close to This Bliss we’re in for a treat!

This youtube playlist only gives you a sample of the album since three tracks are missing, Ulrichten, White Out, and Seeds of Sleep.  The three videos below feature my three favorite tracks from This Bliss, Asha, Saturn Strobe, and Eisbaden.  (Funny that whoever made the Eisbaden video put an ice bathing song to summer beach videos.)
