Comment: Antti Turp aka Kroma`s music is tipped on the strength of his previous issues of the likes of Otsi mind Merkuurilt (2013, Trash Can Dance) and Siin kus lõpeb Maa (2014, self-released/Bandcamp). Prince of the City continues obsessively to search for detailed, elaborated soundscape though the result eventually will be quite relaxing and soothing. Indeed, the aspects of creating ambiance are craftily poised with accomplished chord genesis. Mid-tempo rhythms are merged with glacial-alike sonic glimpses as if an alien shuttle waiting for a suitable moment to get started from an Arctic ice glacier into the Outer Space. Indeed, the thought of it is epic and sublime and Turp`s music supports properly this idea. On the other side, I guess the title hints rather to the urban environment though I can only imagine the album to be a soundscape for the sleeping city being lightened by halves. Musically it seems to be steeped in Kosmische Musik tradition, New Age music, motion picture soundtracks and slightly fusion and progressive music tinged formulas. By the way, a couple of compositions are produced by another Estonian electronic music mastermind called Galaktlan.
