While a challenging listen at times, FREEWILL is without a doubt an EP that makes 25 minutes a full on experience, submerged in dark blues and deep purple sounding samples dripping in reverb. Although a debut, FRATIMA delivers with a type of polish and sound quality that becomes addicting to listen to overtime, and this will age with much grace. I'm glad I worked on it.
Favorite track: ORIG_FREEWILL.
33RPM: Interviewing FRATIMA is really weird. It's like you're talking to a very one-dimensional person, or a very advanced AI. Either way, that advanced AI has, without a doubt, taken a trip to the year 2000 in electronic form. With obvious PlayStation 2 samples, and less apparent "vibes" scattered on this EP, it's ambitious as a debut. And yet, even with the six official tracks, you can hear the improvement in areas like mastering, sound complexity, and making the most with little. Without writing a complete review, I will say this. As a beginners effort, it certainty seems like there's a lot more to describe FRATIMA than just a "beginner effort", a more appropriate title would have to have too many details to be a title in the first place, and it's only the beginning.

Dreams have a voice of their own, it's just a matter of paying attention, to them, this is what happens with Clinomania, on more than one occasion you will question if the external sound or the sound of your headphones is more real. Propuesta Cultural
