THN055 >> SELFFISH - ENA
      [18.04.2004 | THOUGHTFUL AMBIENT LOUNGE DUB FOLLOW-UP]

Andrew Eigus aka Selffish is the protagonist of the Thinner 
guild of electronic music producers who concern themselves with 
an Ambient/Lounge approach. 

After his 2002 Thinner impact “Enas”, Thinner is  delighted to 
release Selffish’s new album - “Ena”, that took about 2 years of 
production time. But the long time waiting for “Ena” has been 
worth it. Eigus unfolds a masterpiece of magnificent songs with 
a wonderful romantic electronic feel to enchant everyone who is 
listening while provoking a permanent state of trance. 

“Ena” provides a musical tension that rises constantly throughout 
the whole release. Bubbling basslines, haunting keys and swirling 
strings set the mood that can't fail to get under your skin and 
is sure to appeal to the discerning Ambient and lounge circles. 

Starting with the rather dramatic “Bare Poles” and it’s cold polar 
pads and distant flickering stabs, it takes a while until Selffish 
appears with an appealing bassline, for setting the right mood to 
enjoy his sonic world. “Se Ipsum Tantum Amare” hails from the 
distance, but the marching bassdrum approachs the listener right 
from the front, shuffling. With “Jet-Legger”, Selffish creates an 
igloo full of ethereal and mindcleaning sounds around a twirl, that 
is carried by very slow relaced beats and finally has a surprising 
and smooth transition at the later part of the song. “The Film” is 
more grounded opposed to the first three tracks and leaves the 
ambient pads for it works more with subtle heartbeat sounds and 
constant hi hats. “Stronger Than Me” opens the midnight part in 
“Ena” – turning on the pace, building up slowly the Selffish-
typical intelligent Lounge/Dub beats to a very intense emotional, 
mental figure with this oh-so-bittersweet melody hook in between. 
“Nighttime” catches on with urbanity, very subtle figures and 
so-much-going-on in the background, perfectly preparing for the 
“Why” ride … rotating stabs and tunnel pads fade in and out. 
“Prism” - is a quite complex and intelligent shifting diamond 
that rotates in shine, while “Lo-Fi Funk 67” is more of the 
reflexive and chilling dawn of the day, for when it’s getting 
watery with “Elusive” and Selffish departing with “Uli” … until 
the next shadows of him will come across the Thinner sunset.
