Genre/Influences: Psychedelic, electro-ambient, downtempo.
Background/Info: Iranian artist Mohamad Reza Govahi aka ‘Morego Dimmer’ is back on track with a new EP from his Morego project. While he’s also involved with Xerxes The Dark and Nyctalllz he now strikes back with a new psychedelic production, which has been made in collaboration with Iranian guitarist Amir HP. After the recently released full length “Astrophile” we here get again something new.
Content: The title song taking off is a pure mix of psychedelic- and ambient music. The guitar with effects on top creates a deeply psychedelic sound, which is only accentuated on the next cut. The Eastern atmosphere also emerges at the surface. “Catharsis” featuring Amir HP has something dub-like and also tribal driven while holding on to the ambient- and psychedelic elements. The last track is a remix Morego did for Ostanes. This is just another project Morego Dimmer is involved with and which has released a single on Bass Star Records as well.
+ + + : The Eastern sphere plus the psychedelic approach definitely are the main strengths of this work. The song together with Amir HP is a brilliant fusion between the Persian culture and some elements from the West world.
– – – : I think there’s more hiding in the title song than what came out of it. “Catharsis” is the real title track from this EP!
Conclusion: The psychedelic voyage of Morego goes on. I’m really wondering where it will stop.
Best songs: “Catharsis feat. Amir HP”.
