Year Two Alpha
Up next on Non Series with a four-track brute is the successful German producer Savas Pascalidis who has been putting out records since the mid 90s. This will be his fourth EP on the Spanish label after releasing NON006, 011 and 016, all since 2012. As a label owner himself of Sweatshop and Freq7, plus an extensive catalog under his belt from labels such as Figure and Mote-Evolver, Pascalidis is not messing around.
The EP opens with ‘Year Two Alpha’, a timeless composition sticking to the fundamental roots of techno, classic to the Non Series sound. On the other hand the added sharpness of ‘Interpositive’ originates from dirty, agitated and unfiltered chords climaxing into speedy rhythmic hihats.
On the flip side, ‘Cold Front’ presents itself with a rolling bassline using symbols to build dynamism throughout the track where the final cut differs as the smooth melody of ‘Quartz’ stomps away at a smoother bpm building a comfortable rhythm.
All in all a perfect fit for Non Series, exuding the minimalistic energy of the label.
