Discovering Charles Ingalls aka Charles The First was one of the best listening pleasures I have had recently. His podcast for Getting Deeper has been unexpectedly incredibly good. And the reason it is unexpected is because I did not get the chance to listen to his music thoroughly before I got the podcast. I had no idea what kind of sets he makes, and I definitely didn’t have any idea how exceptional his original productions are. I had heard 2 of his tracks and they were enough for me to come to the conclusion that he had a great taste. I put blind faith into this. Recently I went through a lot more of his music, and it was so damn good… It made me so proud to know that Getting Deeper has a set from him.
And so you can imagine how mind blown I was after listening to his finished set. Every track is selected well in such a way that it fits with the overall smoothness of the set. The tracks in themselves are pure eargasms. Super chill beats are combined with creamy rich synths and melodies to produce a gorgeous sound.
The best part? Every track has its own uniqueness even though it maintains a consistent vibe of divinity. Different variations are incorporated with each transition. I love that about beats and chillstep sets, especially if they are mixed well. Even in this set, the transitions are so smooth and light that you feel like the entire set is a whole in itself. You feel like you are walking across different streets of the same city. Each street and each corner having its own entity, yet at the same time being part of a common identity.
Thanks Charles 🙂 This is absolutely lovely.
