About this item
Mercury-nominated artist Maps, aka James Chapman, presents his fifth studio album, Counter Melodies.
Maps’ music has always embraced melancholia, but with Counter Melodies Chapman has produced an album of upbeat and uplifting dance tracks. The album is a new adventure through the familiar emotional terrain of the Maps sound, while also transporting you to more resolutely optimistic and hopeful places.
Barry says: A near perfect collection of rave-influenced electronics, with a bright sidechained synth lines and saw wave stabs, underpinned with an intricate and dynamic percussive backdrop. It's a heady and hypnotic mix, and one that results in an album that sits somewhere between chilled home listening and dark dancefloor business. Really lovely.
