A.GE With a deep Sega CD era inspiration, 'Twirl' also reminded me of some Dreamcast titles, going from some jumpey plucked bass and uplifting guitar solos to beautifully composed arpegiatted melodies and pads that guide you into a gorgeous submarine odyssey.

From one track to another, ACY signs here a skillfully crafted album, with inspired tracks that will make you want to smile, dance, relax, jump and surely will make you want more by the end of the record !

To play on repeat !

kimbonater_x ACY's music is a gateway to happiness. His music feels like a direct reflection of his creative character - he's a positive beacon of warm fuzzies in a world of cold pricklies and I'm grateful for all he has contributed to the musical landscape within synthwave/retrowave. Each release goes in different creative directions and its so refreshing to hear the changes he makes with each one. Support this creative artist! Favorite track: 1994pm.

lessdead Well, he's only gone and done it again. Twirl is ACYs tribute to Encarta and old Sega Saturn sound tracks. his sound pallet is shiny and cheesy, but instantly charming and nostalgic. as with his other recent releases, there is a deceptive depth to this album. complex melodies play off each other as if they have their own personalities and the songs have a warm, inviting loveliness to them. as an artist, ACY has a knack for injecting his work with a playful sentimentality that just works. magic.

about

"One wonderfully-woven and delicately spectral release from one of the country’s best producers" - The Thin Air bit.ly/357wEX3

With a sound-palette straight out of the Encarta era, 'Twirl' is a record steeped in the shimmering synth sounds of the mid '90s, laced with a modern twist.

Sparkling with marine majesty, it fuses underwater ambience with rainy-day lofi jazz, soaring axe solos and the consummate sheen of Sega CD soundscapes. 'Twirl' celebrates the adventure of OG internet, CD-ROM afternoons and the digital companionship of your first computer.

It also comes with two bonus synth jams, as well as HTML liner notes, Bandcamp exclusive remix, hidden track (download to get it) and more.
