The Crystal Ark – The City Never Sleeps review

Artist: The Crystal Ark
Title: The City Never Sleeps
Label: DFA US
Genre: Disco/Nu-Disco
Format: Digital
Buy From: Juno Download

Following the awesome gothic techno thump of his Black Meteoric Star project last year, Gavin Russom returns from a five week stint travelling through Brazil full of inspiration and yet another alias in The Crystal Ark. Much like the title, the prodigious nature of Russom’s musical mind evidently has little time for human needs such as sleep.

“The City Never Sleeps” is a typically intricate production that adds and strips layers of percussion, pulsing basslines wiggling synths and some hypnotic vocals from Viva Ruiz over the space of 12 minutes with spell binding results.
