Augustwolf - "Urban Dossier 8F"

Review by Adam Jones - MUSIC FARMER 5

A Mesmerizing Ode to the Future of Fusion

Unleashing a blistering, sensorial auditory experience like no other, Augustwolf's "Urban Dossier 8F" breaks new ground in the evolving landscape of fusion. A standout single from the "Visual Music" album, the track is as much an audacious experiment in genre bending as it is an ambitious love letter to the power of music to evoke, provoke, and inspire.


From the very beginning, "Urban Dossier 8F" pulls no punches. Its dramatic opening salvo, rich with percussion that echoes the cinematic expansiveness of Hans Zimmer, sets the stage for the ensuing sonic journey. This is not just music—it's a narrative spun in sound.


Douglas Wolf Reid, the human behind Augustwolf, deftly integrates an impressive array of diverse musical elements into the composition. As the track progresses, it segues into a furious jazz piano interlude with a gritty, rock-infused edge. This seamless fusion of seemingly disparate genres—underscored by the funky syncopated hi-hat of the drum set and the full-bodied roar of brass—is nothing short of exhilarating.


However, it is Augustwolf's astonishing guitar solo that truly elevates "Urban Dossier 8F" into the realm of the extraordinary. Conjuring echoes of legends like Van Halen and Metallica, the solo serves as a stunning exemplification of Augustwolf's audacious artistry. It's a bold, soaring exploration of rhythm and melody that sends shivers down the spine and electrifies the senses.
