Press Info:
As the most cinematic piece on an entire cinematic music inspired EP “Azula” is a true storyteller.

Evolving from an alien ambient intro to a set of dramatic strings before going completely mental with a huge lead melody. This one is the exact opposite of a tool track.
Absolute tension builder “Helms Klamm” walks the tightrope between beauty and beast. Dark stuttered vocals and a driving trance groove set the stage for a shockingly dramatic Reese bass melody to be burned deep into your mind. A true cinematic Techno monster.

UK drill vocals, psy effects and afterlife-like melodies printed on a fast percussive techno groove is what characterises “Rooftop Stop”. A slick blend of several specific elements from different genres combined in one coherent piece make this one experimental Mainroom Techno at its finest.

Dark-psy bomb “Almond” may be used with caution as it may induce bad trips to the few people on LSD on the floor. The continuously looping melody and the weird hypnotic sound effects are both beautifully disturbing and form a diabolical blend with the odd bassy synth.

The classical Hard Techno banger “Nebulas” fills all the needs of a set´s peak. Hellish effects and distorted guitar riffs turn the heat up to purgatory levels. Everything from the sharp hi-hats to the atonal synths and the twisty breaks is designed to slay.

As a fast dub-tool “Dior Scent” decorates a steady groove with sudden punchy impacts and trembling Hellrazer guitar samples. A Subtly morphing ambience is repeatedly broken abruptly making the rhythm ever changing and addicting.

out for a while: Thomas Hessler – Intermission [Symbolism]

 

Artist:
Thomas Hessler

 

Title:
Intermission EP

 

Label:
Symbolism

 

Cat#:
SYMDIGI015

 

Release Date:
11th February 2022

 

Format:
download & streaming

 

Tracklist:
01.
Intermission

02.
Horizon

03.
The Collider

04.
Hall

 

Press Info:
Berlin-based Hessler, known for his output on Marcel Fenglers IMF, turns in four tracks that embrace melody as much as peak time heft. Intermission opens with staccato stabs punctuated with slamming percussive hits while Hessler utilises a myriad of tension/release tactics with his arrangement.

While Horizon, next, kicks off with brooding intensity, it steadily opens up into the sort of cinematic beauty that has people clambering to drop a Track ID? wherever possible. Before returning to emotive melody with the electro-influenced keys of closer, Hall, Hessler drops in the clattering rawness of the appropriately titled The Collider.

Press Info:
Remco Beekwilder is back on both sides with his ‘Moortgat EP’ on EMERALD. As infamous as the EP title implies, he’s bringing the balance between cold mistily remembered sounds and a heart-warming practical feel. A constant shift in mood and intensity, driven by stark drum programming using the right amount of funk to interact with the opposing fundamentals. All cuts share a lot of DNA with each other and makes you reminisce of simpler times.
