Sonic Tonic: Buildup by Ecstatic Dance Records

Last Week, I introduced you to Ecstatic Dance Records and we listened to their “Arrival Phase” Music which lined up well with the “Flowing” Rhythm as introduced by Gabrielle Roth.

Yesterday, I introduced you to the second rhythm, staccato. Today, we revisit ecstatic dance records for their take on this rhythm, which they call the “The buildup phase”

According to their website, these tracks are driving, thrusting, insistent and rising. They are intensifying and thrusting. Yup, you guessed it, this is masculine energy. These beats are often driving and percussive and staccato. They are generally mid-tempo and help the dancers to develop dynamic tension. This aptly named “build-up” Phase prepares for what comes next.
