“Sage” is C l i m a t e ‘ s second offering and is a mixture of instrumental Hip Hop/Trip Hop with the now signature oriental instrumentation and glitch synths. The result is a surprisingly successful mix of upbeat funky moments with a feel-good vibe (even euphoric in places!). The deeper purpose of this music is, as its title suggests, to highlight the wisdom of wise men from the twentieth century, conveyed cleverly throughout via speech samples which provide a clear narrative and a thought provoking experience.
Each track on Climate’s debut EP ‘Silk Road’ is artfully choreographed to capture the feeling of travelling along the Silk Road. Like one of the many routes of the Silk Road itself, the EP begins with a carefree afternoon in China, and later ends with our traveller crossing the border into India.
