Golden Heart recalls the unusually lighthearted work of Jean-Jacques Perrey. Sakis Gouzonis fills his work with an unwavering sense of optimism. By carefully selecting the sound style and delivery, the pieces have a timeless quality to them. Thanks to impeccable taste, Sakis Gouzonis ensures that his music highlights the absolute best of early electronic music while also showing where it can go in the future. Every song fits into the last as Sakis Gouzonis ensures that his music does more than explore melody, but helps to wordlessly tell a story. This sense of narrative helps to bind the many pieces together.
For The Power Of Your Love, Sakis Gouzonis opens the album up with a stately theme. Higher And Further displays a jaunty rhythm which propels the song forward. With a folk-like melody, On A Happy Sunday is one of the highlights of the collection. On To The One That I Love, the song feels tender as its delicate structure constantly sweeps ever upwards. Spreading things out a bit is the patient and restrained More Than Words Can Say whose many pieces come together to create a beautiful tapestry of sound. Moving into dance-friendly territory, Together Forever positively shines. Golden Heart ends with the powerful You Are My Strength.
Sakis Gouzonis displays the raw emotional power of electronic music with Golden Heart. Returning to the careful, yet carefree sounds, works wonders and shows exactly what is missing with so many electronic music artists today: heart and soul.
