From a young age, Ephemeral’s father exposed him to a variety of styles of music – most notably groups like Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, and Tubular Bells. These psychedelic, moody, deep, and sometimes raw sounds heavily influenced his tastes in music and can clearly be seen in his productions. As he grew older and discovered house and techno music, Ephemeral always went out of his way to dig for tracks with deeper sounds. Since he started playing regularly in clubs around the UK six years ago, his sets have always reflected his unique taste.
This release, his second, showcases his uniquely moody and emotional sound. Each track on Sunshine Comes After Rain is undeniably deep and dubby while also incorporating jazzy elements. At times, Ephemeral creates a truly raw and gritty sound through his heavy use of filters but the vibe of the tracks is never brought down and stays fluid and groovy. Kez YM, a house legend with releases on FACES Records, City Fly, 4lux, and Cocoon (among others) provided a classic house groove with a beautiful piano melody on his rework of Sunshine Comes After Rain on the B side.
