"New Horizon," for instance, unveils a beat that builds itself right before your eyes—despite sounding like it's being played over a phone—while organs wrap themselves around each other, playing second fiddle to a piano that grabs the foreground.

New Horizon is as much for meditation as it is for dancing.
