Di Evantile's second album, "Inertia" demonstrates his interest in electronic music and perhaps a "The Chemical Brothers" and "Depeche Mode" influence can be felt, but the overall feel of the whole album is Di Evantile. It is clear that he understands the workings of electronic music, and that the base of the electronic music is the sound effects. However, he does not ignore the melodic component of the music. Di Evantile has progressively moved toward an identity as an electronic music artist.
In this remarkable album, as with all Di Evantile's music, the subtle insistence on melody helps to better measure the scope and distance of the sonic exploration. The results are expansive, evocative compositions which take the listener on other worldly journeys, while retaining an understated imprint of the familiar.
Di Evantile's early creative explorations were tempered by the pop music he heard growing up during the 1980s, ranging from heavy metal to dance. Beneath the dream-like sounds he constructs, that decade's trace can still be detected. And despite the predominance of sound guiding most electronic artist, Di Evantile also brings a subtle, but pervasive melodic consciousness to his music.
Although "Inertia" is different than Di Evantile's first release, "Rhetorical Digression," it definitely retains some of the flavor that was felt in that release while standing on its own merits. The album contains some relaxing compositions ambient type such as "Violet Whisper," "Mind" and "Decompressed." The "Element of Happiness" is excepting, which is brighter and charming, more of a ballad type. The title track, "Inertia," has the most powerful and remarkable melody. Of course there are some of the experiments with electronic sounds with "Intension," "Digital Fusion" and "Glassy Cracker."
"Inertia" will bring forth the thought that while Di Evantile aspires toward the achievements of down tempo masters like Jean Michael Jarre, he can, in his own right, be thought of as a superhero of sound. Di Evantile elaborated his thoughts on the music by saying that, "Making the world better, more harmonic, is the most important objective for now." The album is distributed on CDbaby. A new world is waiting for you on "Inertia."
