According to an old Greek myth, travellers from distant lands would encounter a sphinx that would present to them a riddle. If they could not solve the riddle, the sphinx would obliterate them. If they provided the correct answer, they would be spared and are allowed to pass.
Initial Eyes has managed to convey this story through the medium of music with his brand-new release ‘Riddle of the Sphinx’. Starting off with a steady beat paired with a heavy dosing of bass, an intriguing melody dances lightly across the background, enticing you to hear more. Slowly, one by one, the music starts to piece together, and the real groove begins.
Sweeping pad sounds replicate desert winds whilst the lead synth solo represents the encounter with the sphinx. The subtle drop adds to the mysteriousness of the track. It keeps up the storytelling throughout the track, showing off Initial Eyes’ talent for intricate detailing. This track is a stunning Progressive, Deep House fusion with real hints of euphoria throughout.
