Petar Dundov Sailing Off the Grid

Petar Dundov Sailing Off the Grid

How far can an artist stretch the capabilities of their trusted arsenal? Petar Dundov was clearly determined to find this out with his latest record. The renowned synth advocate has been applying his hardware-focused methods since he burst on the scene with Music Man Records nearly a decade ago. Favouring the power of Roland's '70s flagship synthesizers, his techniques spawned a handful of recognizably timeless anthems that softened the borders between techno and trance. For his third studio album, Dundov opted to honour his established doctrine by not to veering too far from the path that helped solidify his legacy. Sailing off the Grid gives much broader insight into Dundov's fixation on his tools. The aptly titled release brilliantly personifies what is audible throughout this record: lengthy, synth-powered voyages, drifting delays, unbound leads and Balearic sensibilities. It's the Croatian's furthest departure from the dance floor on record, in what is possibly a final effort to showcase the range of his historic machines. (Music Man)
