'Emergence' comes from both Quantum Soul & Katya Gabeli, with the idea of fusing classic western music with a contemporary approach. The track was created through a lengthy exchange of ideas and the finished article is spine-tinglingly sublime. Opening up with a sparse violin solo, the track builds tension from the outset towards a chorus of strings; time is marked by thunderous percussion hits offering a suggestion of what lies ahead. The serene strings and rolling bass are the main focal points, beautifully enveloping the complex percussion and complimented by soft vocal atmospherics, which hold the listener in suspense and anticipation throughout. The breakdown is expertly engineered so as to seemingly evaporate into nothing, allowing the next round of tension/release to begin again with further compositional details continuing until the end. 'Emergence' is a totally immersive experience on headphones and demands full attention through a sound system; it is unlike any strictly 'classical' or 'dubstep' music you have ever heard before, being a perfect synergy of both art forms.
