Composer/producer Aries Deng presents instrumental themes as well as electronic dance songs featuring guest singers. Our favorite, and clearly representing her strength, is “April.” A blend of classic piano melody and EDM dance tempos, this instrumental theme deftly segues from one motif to the other, even deploying a synthesizer-rendered classical string section as it builds to its cli- max and cool-down. A bit less engaging are the dance tunes, “A Midsummer Night” and “Guide Me Home.” While both feature decent 4/4 hooks and generate equal amounts of poignancy and jubilation, both songs are basically by-the-numbers, with weak, hackneyed lyrics that seem like an afterthought, even for this genre.
