Another great track that arrived to us from Germany. Hypnotized is an outstanding nu-disco track that is both danceable and chill, highly well produced. Amidst many cliché nu-disco coming out, this track stands out. According to Munich-based songwriter/producer Frieder Mollat responsible for KLANGPLANET, Hypnotized has “an oriental touch”. It’s much more than a disco track with oriental-touch for sure, it brings with it many different influences that are not only limited to the oriental tradition, that starts to appear only after 1:30 of song. It is possible to hear many different elements of vocals, such as a short and quiet spoken male voice to a female disco style vocal, with a deep house touch. In the begging we can also find a female vocal that sound pretty much like Thievery Corporation and its Bossa Nova inspiration.
Hypnotized is a big pack containing many influences, something I learned to be called chillout music many years ago. But, as I mentioned in many earlier posts, I’m not a big appreciator of music categorisation and labels, they are never precise for original music such as this one.
It is possible to stream it by Spotify.
