A year since his debut album '1979', 19 year old producer/multi-instrumenta-list Mathias Stubo hits us between the eyes with his second. Full of genre-breaking beauty. A monster 20-tracker, divided into two halves which together covers Stubo 's world of sound.

Part 1, High Frequency Feelings, is an intense, scientific voyage that takes us through an ocean of different canvases, showcasing Stubo 's talent for mixing up all kinds of styles and using crossover instruments while still retaining his signature sound. There are serious elements of jazz, rock and fusion throughout this LP, which echo legendary figures like Joe Zawinul and guitarist and band leader John McLaughlin. We can find traces of dubstep in the dreamy, half beat joint 'Soon a Brighter Day' which features Ida Christine Stein on vocals, and the intense 'Let Time Pass' touches the deeper parts of techno music, while with it's intricate rhythmic patterns also flirts with afrobeat. At the same time, whenever Kristoffer Eikrem's trumpet comes in, it all gets pulled slightly towards modern harmonic jazz music. There are even traces of contemporary classical music here and there, especially in 'Opp i Lufta', with it's occasional off-scale flute lines and rubato parts. (Both the marimba and the flute are used creatively to create organic sound effects,
in real contemporary music fashion.

Part 2, Soul Touch, is a lush, downtempo, atmospheric experience showing Stubo 's love for modern instrumental beat music, which would be very much at home in the corridors of Hotel Costes. As it unfolds you realize its about ideas and concepts. Some of the instruments that are used are so processed and blurred up that they are hard to identify. Soul Touch is 11 tracks, which look back and forward simultaneously, inspired by the long, cold Norwegian winter.The disco aspect of Stubo 's previous record, 1979, is not so visible here. Instead we get the intricate, the abstract, the futuristic, with simple but clever harmonic changes, full of beautiful melodies to zone out to. Pure headphone music aiming directly for the deepest corners of your soul.
