Belgian producer Adriaan de Roover (aka Oaktree) release debut album ‘Leaves’, a moody, textural and enchanting record of organic electronica. Grainy soundscapes flow smoothly together with rippling breakbeats. Dystopian rhythms vanish into horizontal noise. An ancient procession in the dark, guided only by touch.

A collage of textures and sounds that bloom and fade, ‘Leaves’ lures you into eleven little sound universes. Themes run from the proliferation of screens in the evolving opener ‘Blue Light’, to the lack of climate action on the urgent ‘Tomorrow Maybe’, and meditations about loss on ‘Liquid / no more’. Tracks such as the brooding pessimism of ‘T'as Faim’ are tempered by lighter moments, like Adriaan’s dedication to his niece ‘Helena’ and the trombone interlude ‘Forgot How to Breathe’. The album finds beauty in small gestures, an infinite balancing act between peace and restlessness.
