Aleks Schatten’s debut EP ‘Scars To Reveal’ to be released on August 21
Berlin-based artist, Aleks Schatten, releases his first four track EP ‘Scars To Reveal’ on August 21. A collection of otherworldly and dystopian Techno tracks building upon Post Industrial, IDM and Avant-garde Punk. Featuring a track with iconic Berlin-based Post-Industrial band Bestial Mouths on their newly founded ‘Compulsive Movement’ label.
Heavily relying on elaborate sound design and subtle details, the opening duo ‘Strangled With A Golden Braid’ and ‘I Lost My Heart Midway To Your Place’ evoke a gloomy and captivating atmosphere with a sense of intimacy and urgency. Whereas ‘Love, Misguided’ is tailored for dancefloors, openly praising Birmingham’s contribution to Techno and at the same time a fond farewell to Aleks Schatten’s EBM roots. The EP closes with ‘In Mourning To Exist’, an anthemic yet slow-moving number featuring Bestial Mouths’ singer Lynette Cerezo, in her lead role as a tribal preacher and enchantress, embedded in a psychedelic Industrial environment, channelling Coil and Psychic TV’s late 80s/early 90s Techno experiments.
A series of DJ sets is planned for late 2017, following the release of a 2nd EP. Mastered by Neptune Mastering
