Solarstone & Orkidea reteam for 'Slowmotion VI'
Serializing singles have been a part of the electronic music landscape since Dave Clarke’s started adding numbers to his legendary ‘Red’ releases. There’s never been a sequence quite as enduringly and era-reflecting as Solarstone and Orkidea’s ‘Slowmotion’ series though.

Essentially a musical testament to an evolving relationship between the two artists, it has waymarked their shared (and now decade-long) musical unity.

May sees the arrival of not just their latest coming-together, but also one of the most pivotal moments in Solarstone’s just-released 4th ‘Electronic Architecture’.

Naturally each ‘Slowmotion’ is its own entity, but the series is bound together - not just by numerals - but also an overarching tone and feel. That’s something that Richard & Tapio again lock into the earliest moments of ‘Slowmotion’s sixth, and never stop developing throughout.

Using a midtempo pace, they power it with a bass-led progressive roll, generating a Morodor-like neo-disco groove for the track. Firing cinematically spacey 80s FX through a modern day prism, the duo reinterpret them retro-futuristically, building the track up to its epically galactic conclusion.

Solarstone and Orkidea’s latest ‘Slowmotion’ strike receives its singles pin today. Find it through all good sales and streaming platforms now.
