Bold Heart Synesthesia

15-Track Album

Released on July 7, 2017.

 

Bold Heart Synesthesia pulls you onto a journey with a vibrant array of color in sound and passion from hard electro tracks to relaxing chill songs and much, much more.

 

Rooted in emotion, this album aims at the core of your being and shoots. Bold Heart Synesthesia depicts a raging heart full of conflicting ideas and emotions in a vibrant array of beauty in color, each track giving you a peek into the human psyche and soul. Best to say, it's an all inclusive ride into the very depths of passion and out onto the fields of glorious sound engineering.

 

Bold Heart Synesthesia kicks off with, "Synthesis," a progressive house track with a heavy bass and kick and with swirling synthesizers, taking you into a world full of energy and subtle emotion. The second track, "Melancholia," brings you down into a relaxing chill state with a four-to-the-floor dance kick and future bass-type synthesizers giving you that smooth ride into the sunset. "Ethos," picks up where, "Melancholia," left off with a smooth chill vibe and steady hip-hop kick and bass, bringing you back into a state of wonderful energy and excitement. "From the Heart" is an emotional yet chill track with a climax and a poem written for it wondering about greater things - about a God who is faithful through all time and space and sheds his love abundantly over humanity. "At Heaven's Gate" depicts what it might be like entering paradise in the after-life, full of excitement, joy, and energy with a soaring, melodic, beautiful piano lining the entire track. "Singing Over You" brings you back down into a state of peace with a subtle and gentle piano and rain falling all around you and with the entrance of the stunning vocals of Carli Harris all culminating into a steady beat with a wonderfully soft, electro synth surrounding the soundscape with thunder in the distance and with a burst of energy from Carli's vocals singing about how God is always singing over you His song of peace, redemption, acceptance, and salvation. "Adagio for Synth" begins with a haunting and passionate synth climaxing into a pounding electro beat and leads you on a darker journey of wonder and excitement with it's glorious arpeggiated, electro, synth sounds all culminating into a flurry of energy and absolution. "Dark Reflection" takes you into a fantastical world with it's distorted, vocoded, female, vocals building up to a sudden drop into a dark electro yet chill beat with it's syncopated synthesizers and subtle piano line. "Healing" was inspired by being awoken out of a dream with a voice I heard spoken over me in the middle of the night saying, "You will be healed." It's chill break beat and piano brings you into that dream state culminating into the voice and then returning back into a dream state. "Flight Mode" takes you out of that dream into the cabin of an airliner getting ready for take off. Using special sound effects, it takes you on an exciting ride with it's hip-hop-type kicks and future bass-type sounds. "Hope and a Future" is a bright danceable song featuring the lovely improv vocals of Lady of the Sky and is just a pleasant and joyful celebration of a bright future we can all have with that faithful companion, whoever they might be. "Interlude of Hope" is a short track with a similar bright and pleasant sound using arpeggiated synths and culminating into an energy-charged drop at the end. "Home" starts with a melancholy and nostalgic sounding piano joined with a leading synth and takes you into a fun soundscape of hope, dreams, and family. "Flow of the Machine" is a bitter-sweet track mixing both a dark and light chord progression with a simple piano and electric piano eventually joined by a bass and beat pounding energy all while you hear inaudible whispering accompanying the flow of the mechanical sounds of this song depicting the interaction between human and machine. "Ghost in the Streets" is a thrilling and dark track with siren sounds eerily in the background and a subtle piano line playing a passionate chord progression accompanied by a water-like, bubbly and plucky synthesizer and rock and electro bass building into an overtly electro drop with this passionate chord progression in the backdrop climaxing with the haunting piano and synth line and with an overdrive bass drop and dissipates into almost nothingness as the piano returns and concludes this epic journey of Bold Heart Synesthesia.

Hindsight - Single

Hindsight

Single

Released on March 4, 2017.

 

Carli Harris & Dormee provide an intimate worship experience for the glory of God with a strong, emotional, and personal message supported by a full melodic and inspiring sound that will encourage and uplift you in your walk with Jesus.


Hindsight; the ability to understand an event or situation only after it has happened or developed. 


Notes from Carli Harris about her story and inspiration:

"Hindsight was birthed one night when I sat down at the piano to worship Jesus and the only thing I could think of was my history with Him, where He found me, the in-between, and where I am now all because of Him. In the present moment, sometimes we don't understand what Jesus is doing in our lives, but in hindsight, we look back and see He was there all along even in our darkest moments. We see that when we were far from Him, He was there waiting for us to come home to Him. Hindsight is a vulnerable song about my story; struggles with depression, suicide, abandonment, the lies I believed about myself, and how that resulted in my search for anything new to fill those voids. Despite of where I was and what I was chasing after, Jesus was and is still chasing after me. The song speaks of the breakthrough I encountered as I allowed my Heavenly Father to reveal Himself to me and His love that broke all my chains. It's a reflection upon the comparison of the fearful person I once was, and being brought back to life throughout the years of being developed into the woman God created me to be. I once was like the Samaritan woman at the well that Jesus spoke to in John 4. Jesus is comparing the well to the worldly things we try to quench our thirst with (yet find ourselves left emptier than we were before) and the water He gives you that will forever satisfy. Jesus responded to her at the well saying, 'Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.' The song ends as a present tense reality where I realize Jesus is the only thing that makes me whole. It's not a declaration that things will get easy in this life after following Christ, but rather, no matter where I end up, I will be okay because Jesus is all I need. He is home."


Notes from Dormee about the music:

"Carli approached me with composing the music for, "Hindsight," with a simple idea. After listening to her demo, I immediately had a vision for the song, the chord progression I could use, and the climatic passion of worship it would turn into. I was inspired by the song, "Take Courage," and how Amanda Cook performed it as a part of Bethel Music. "Hindsight" starts out with a subtle piano line with Carli's vulnerable and powerful vocals and then continuously builds with a contemporary style drum beat and electronic synths joined by a full string orchestra climaxing into an impassioned song of worship. The climax fades with a solo violin and the return of the subtle piano.

Wake Me Now - 7-Track EP

Wake Me Now

7-Track EP

Released on December 16, 2016.

 

Jdrop & Dormee deliver you something new in their EP, "Wake Me Now," pushing the limits to the extreme with intense sounds of Hip Hop, Trap, EDM, and Rock flavors coupled with a spiritually encouraging and gritty message.

 

The "Wake Me Now" EP is a fulfillment of Joel Christopher Rees' (Jdrop) mother's dying wish for him to reach out to those needing the spiritual help of Jesus Christ through music with a message. Although Joel didn't know how he would accomplish this, God already had a plan set in motion for him. Struggling with self-doubt and social anxiety, Jonny Reese (Dormee) would spend long hours cooped away in his bedroom studio working on creating an original and super-positive-charged EDM sound that was also heart-felt, gritty, and real. In 2014, Joel and Jonny were introduced to each other and hit it off right away. As time passed, Joel and Jonny would help each other with their careers. There came a time where their relationship was tested because of some confusion and lies the enemy threw at them, but God was already working in both their lives to grow them, make them stronger, and ultimately bring them back together in an order of conjunction and with their passion for music. in January of 2016, they woke up from their spiritual slumber and were reunited and immediately set to work on, "Wake Me Now." Although the enemy has tried to distract them, God has set a hedge of protection around them and around this EP project and those featured on each track. Joel and Jonny worked tirelessly through the year and are finally ready to present the final product to you, The "Wake Me Now" EP, which includes seven, full-length, and God-inspired tracks.

 

"Prayer," featuring the haunting and raw vocals of Elizabeth VanOmmeren and with this song's simple piano line building into a frenzy of dance-pumping energy deals with calling out to God in a time of desperation and brokenness to where we know God can rescue us from anything and that we can have peace that remains. "Wake Me Now," featuring the electrifying vocals of Jodi Felton and with it's gut-wrenching electro drops deals with learning how to wake up when we are in our darkest places in our lives and understand that God has so much more of a calling and purpose for us, being here to make a difference and stepping up to the call. "Shattered Pieces," featuring the driving and passionate vocals of Nikki Coey and with it's dual-genre unique quality deals with feeling lost and empty inside, but finding rest and healing in God as He is able to restore our lives consistently even at our weakest points. "Tonight," featuring the stunning and dance-driven vocals of Carli Harris with the song's experimental approach and sound was inspired out of experiencing life, joy, and freedom in Christ and realizing that everyday walking with Jesus can be the best days of our lives. "Falling Into You," featuring the stellar and compelling, indie-punk, and gritty vocals of Jimmy Glover with the song's bass-punching and emotional rendering essence is about finding refuge in God and falling completely into Him and letting go of trying to do everything on our own by giving Him complete surrender. "Break Loose Shake It," has Jdrop both rapping and singing from his soul in this song's gritty crunk and trap feel and talks about overcoming fear and aggravation that we can face daily and realizing that we have authority through Jesus in us to put under every demonic attack that would try to hinder us. The "Epilogue" is a bass-pumping, dance instrumental, inspired song that can really lift you up and take you to a place of joy and freedom in the midst of your battles and it can reveal that you truly can be free always no matter what's happening around you.

 

Jdrop & Dormee wish you the best on your journey into, "Wake Me Now," and hope this EP will bless you in a new and unique way through the power of Jesus Christ.

 

Some of Jdrop's influences include NF, Jor'Dan Armstrong, Lacrae, Bassnectar, Thousand Foot Krutch, Skrillex, Krewella and the message was inspired by God and real life situations and experiences that gave insight to the pen and paper in hand, creating a message to reach the masses for the glory of God and to see people set free and activate their calling.

Some of Dormee's influences include Tiësto, deadmau5, Kaskade, Skrillex, Krewella, Andy Hunter, Andy Mineo, and Muse along with drawing inspiration from life experiences where God chose to reveal Himself to Dormee. He also draws inspiration from taking long walks or riding his bike in God's creation and in the urban city landscape around him.

Peace On Earth - 4-Track EP

Peace On Earth

4-Track EP

Released on December 11, 2015.

 

Peace On Earth is a small compilation of both exhilarating and serene electronic dance music with a beautiful dance arrangement of Night Divine (O Holy Night). This EP is dedicated to the victims of the Paris attacks of 2015 and their family and friends.

 

Peace On Earth is written to inspire thoughts of unity, serenity, and ultimately peace on a global scale. DORMEE composes music to provoke positive feelings to uplift your spirit and refresh your soul and this EP is a prime example of that creative philosophy. Electronic Dance Music or EDM is a perfect medium in which to expressive the passions and desires of life and all the music on this album are dance worthy of this. With the steady and full-bodied dance-kick to the syncopated plump plucking of the enriched synthesizers, Peace On Earth delivers a delicious sampling of the classic and chilling progressive house sound also found in tracks by the likes of Deadmau5 and Kaskade. The first track of this EP, "Fire & Ice," presents an intense and chilling experience of a progressive, electro house, and trance music hybrid, going so far as to even use an ice cracking sound effect from the movie, The Polar Express. The second track, an arrangement of Adolphe Adam's classic Christmas carol, "O Holy Night," (in this album called, "Night Divine") provides a unique blend of both acoustic and electronic instruments which homogenize into a haunting and dance-kick heavy chorus all while supporting the innocent and pure polished vocals of Saphara Darkstar. The third track, from which the name of this album is derived, is simply here to inspire the listener to envision something greater than what we know, to conjure feelings of divine and lasting peace on earth, where the lion and the lamb can lie together without fear in a world as calm as the clear night sky full of stars and covered in a fresh cool blanket of snow. The fourth and last track of the album, "For All People," takes up where the third track left off. In a similar yet brighter and more cheerful style than the track before, "For All People," blazes through the darkness with clear and pure melodic rays of glorious sunlight. With a clear and plump "four to the floor" dance-kick and pulsating blanket of synth, the message of this track is found in it's wonderfully crafted melodic line. Like Scrooge waking up on a brilliant Christmas morning, the cheer of this melody is both in it's blazing synth element in the chorus and intimate simplicity of the celesta in the verse. This EP is dedicated to the victims of the Paris attacks of 2015 and to their friends and family. May peace be found where there was none.
