Aethernal – “Distant Arrival”

With “Memories” Talfelt once again delivers a joyful but driving journey through ethereal spaces spiked with moody twists., its distinctively analog charm, and slightly melancholic touch. Perfectly reflecting after hour vibes as well as particularly emotional moments this gem shall lighten up all present souls with seldomly heard excellence.

Murky fm – “At Peace”
To continue the captivating yet sentimental streak of Sonus Diēi, Murky fm provided his moderately paced but charming opus “At Peace”. Clean and powerful it drifts like a flying carpet flying over the hustle and bustle of raving conveying a deeply peaceful and relaxed state of mind – mesmerizing but still pounding.

Antic Soul – “Licht Und Schatten”
Like a dichotomous interplay between light and darkness Antic Souls’ “Licht und Schatten” takes the listener along on a vivid and driving ride characterized by the alternating appearance of high and low melodic sequences that give the track its unique energy and joy. Authentic and ever-changing layers of textures, classic drum patterns, and percussions at a spanking pace make it the perfect tool for playful vibes on every dancefloor causing an irresistible and endless urge for dancing.

Blanka – “Current Vibrations”
Functional and with a more tool-ish approach Room Trax co-founder BLANKA contributes her hypnotic, percussion, and bassline-driven track “Current Vibrations” that assertively captures and evokes endless dancing with style. Groovy and in an old-school manner it uncannily blends into a moody almost cloudy version of itself and back to its original bouncy state revitalizing the power of the audience.

Mamwadi – “Rotation”
Driven by groovy drums and percussions and its propelling bassline “Rotation” excellently works as a bouncy tool perfectly warming up for any kind of dance-off. Strongly defined by ist spacial textures moving throughout the stereo panorama it fetches the listener with its pure and unstoppable flow – another gem by young talent Mamwadi.

Noah Choi – “Mr. Anderson”
Deep but mesmerizing Noah Choi’s “Mr. Anderson” sucks all present courtesy into a mindbending and otherworldly atmosphere filled with hypnotic progressions, textures, and the distinctive acid lead melody. Combined with the punching bass letting you plunge into a sensual state of mind it almost seems that the rules of gravity no longer matter – it’s time to get lost.

Swooh – “Asphyxia”
Apart from her devotion to fast Trance-infused Techno weapons – that she proved more than once – Swooh seamlessly creates the finest offgrid electronic cuts once of a kind. Following this approach “Asphyxia” comes as a breathtaking and sweaty heater with a savagely blasting bassline, nasty breakbeat patterns, and its fiery energy quickly changing the mood with style.

Not Modest – “Fainted Signs”
Embedded in an experimental set of percussions and atmospheric pads, paired with the abrupt onset of a deep synthesizer and the advent of the distant angelic vocals “Fainted Signs” comes as an ambivalent off-grid excursion. Both, otherworldly harmonious and imposingly oppressive it tells a smooth, weightless, and unique story contributed by Vitus’ Curse label head Not Modest.

Any Mello – “Wimm”
As if in a dream, Any Mello asks one of the most existential questions one can ask, answering it with playful ease through a melody that is both firm and mellow. “Wimm” conveys peacefulness, depth, and tranquility as few other tracks can. It is playful with emotional depth, melancholic with optimism, like waking up to birdsongs after unsettling dreams – Any Mello like never heard before.

Press Info:
We are back with our second installment on Vitus’ Curse presenting you Erfurt-based newcomer Aethernal. Driven by his fascination for diverse combinations of pounding rhythms and harmonics he already released on labels like Aythekos, Obscure Sorrows and his co-founded and label Linie Neun together for his first vinyl release in 2020. Fully prepared for the revival of raving he now delivers four original tracks compiled into a massive trip through otherworldly ethereal spaces, mesmerizing soundscapes, and heavy technoid breaks inspired by the realms of Techno, Ambient, and Electro. With Lifka’s take on “Colliding Worlds” as a perfect addition to this selection Vitus’ Curse strikes again bringing along Aethernal and his utmost captivating story about passion and ecstasy – unique, atmospheric, and with incredible momentum.

Vergil
Perfectly introducing the release “Vergil” shows its full potential right from the beginning. With heavy drive, distinctive arps, and its pounding rhythm it leads the way until the break turns into an intense tapestry of fervidly crafted sounds. Resembling the Limbus of the divine act of Vergil it breaks down in ominous soundscapes and reemerges in a glorious musical outburst between heaven and hell – full of rave energy and without compromise.

Colliding Worlds
With excellent sound design Aethernal’s “Colliding Worlds” takes the audience along on an otherworldly journey from ordinariness into uncertainty. Ethereal textures, broken rhythms, and a variety of wonderfully layered arps and pads together with the characteristical baseline embedded in an eerie atmosphere result in an unparalleled tangible story full of strong emotions and unforeseen twists.

Resurrection
“Resurrection” stands in contrast to the dystopian and crushed atmosphere conveyed in this selection. By introducing a vigorously forceful baseline, strength is summoned to resurrect from the absorbing shoals of darkness. Distinct synthesizer melodies carry both, an emotional dichotomy of melancholic heaviness ascension demands and the vibrantly optimistic look towards joyful vigor.

The Temple
The last track brings a harmonious conclusion to the tension built up beforehand. Choral and melodic elements emanate lightness and vibrancy regained through the final metaphorical arrival in the light. Disunity and obscurity are abandoned and the drifting, smooth rhythm paired with celestial strains takes one to the peaceful, eurythmic temple where zest for life and high spirits are nurtured.

Colliding Worlds (Lifka Remix)
Letting “Colliding Worlds” appear in a whole new light Lifka provided the EP with a stunning remix of this universal weapon. Fast-paced, atmospherically trancy, and with an utmost intense twist towards the end it is made for special moments on every dancefloor. Prepare for an ecstatic and uplifting ride through the night lead by Lifka – energetic, driving, and unique.

That being said, we’re more than prepared for the resurrection of a post-pandemic rave culture and we hope to see you, soon. Brace yourselves, the movement starts now.

Confluence – “Halftime”
Previously heard on labels like Etruria Beat, SUB tl, Warok and many more Confluence aka Evgeny Chizhkov now reappears on vitus’ curse with a dreamy after hour tool full of atmosphere. Embedded in its distinctive bassline paired with a sharp and cinematic percussion set “Halftime” goes right under the skin and is reminiscent of warm wafts of mist at dawn.

Egotot – “Bright Light In The End Of The Night”
Both as founder of Schimmer Records and as artist young talent, Egotot from Stuttgart initiated a remarkable creative outlet supporting the new generation of the scene. With “Bright Lights In The End Of The Night” we present his newest uplifting, dub-ish and propellent club weapon surely living up to its name. Outstandingly clean it instantly prompts good vibes and nonchalant motion on every dancefloor.

Lobec – “Transformation”
As if out of the blue he first appeared on the British Label Furthur Electronix with his masterpiece “5am Nostalgia”. Since then he repeatedly delivered cutting edge electronic sounds crafted with love and most refreshing musical narratives. In the same way “Transformation” satisfies with its utterly emotional vibe and an amazingly aesthetic soundscape – definitely one to mindfully listen to.

Not Modest – “Inner Unrest”
Both, as founder of vitus’ curse and as artist Not Modest makes his debut with his first official release via vitus’ curse. Full of energy his latest track “Inner Unrest” unleashes melancholic euphoria embedded in a fading 90s-Trance-ish tapestry of sound led by driving drum rhythms. Ably leading the way through a nostalgic after hour journey it just seems to be perfect to induce utterly exciting moments and a tangibly good vein.

Planar Traits – “Fading”
Having heard Planar Traits “Otherworld” via Osignat you can clearly feel his unique production style at once. With “Fading” we proudly present the young Scottish producer and DJ’s first track on “Vitus’ Curse: Sonus Diēi”. Emotional strings and uplifting acid sequences paired with driving drum patterns and a beautiful and refreshing atmosphere – truly a gem.

Planar Traits – “Spaces”

Embedded in its distinctive smoky vibe it almost feels like it is predestined for highly emotional moments on the dancefloor – which is what we’re keenly looking forward to.

Somoah – “Hgedon”
With his second appearance on vitus’ curse Somoah proves the versatility of his production styles and also gives a sneak peek into his more obscure passion Electro. Showing the great influence by his new love for Electro “Hgedon” rushes in with cheerful arps, an eerie mood and a fresh punching Electro-beat – a delightfully confusing but all the more pleasing story of nostalgia.

Talfelt – “Interwall”
As his second appearance on part two of the compilation up and coming artist Talfelt contributes another unique hardware-based performance. As always recorded as one take “Interwall” convinces with an exceptionally vivid and playful mood, dynamic drum patterns and propellent percussions with the typical warm-sounding analog charm – a pleasant journey through characterful soundscapes.

Terrestrial Access Network – “Plate Tectonics”
Young Talent ‘Terrestrial Access Network’ already surprised with a bunch of sophisticatedly crafted electronic cuts. Both as Collin Sullivan and Terrestrial Access Network he made his debut on Shapeshifter Records through which he has steadily kept releasing fresh electronic productions over the past few years. With “Plate Tectonics” he definitely made no exception – Acid Electronic at its finest.

Tillman – “A Place Called Castalia”:
Being part of the Nebula- and the EXIL-Collective Tillman has become more and more present in the nightlife of Leipzig over the last few years. After his last two releases via EXIL and now with his first appearance on vitus’ curse he clearly proves his capability to mesmerize every surrounding with his typically stunning and sentimental sound. While following his very own minimalistic approach “A Place Called Castalia” comes in gently but captivating with its distinctive and mantra-like whispering and fresh galloping drums & percussions.
