new SWEATSHOP release: Savas Pascalidis & Joel Alter – Sirenes

Artist:
Savas Pascalidis & Joel Alter

Title:
Sirenes

Label:
Sweatshop Records

Cat#:
SWSH005

Release Date:
out now

Format:
12″ & digital

Tracklist:
01. Sirenes
02. Moirae
03. Moirae (Joel Alter Edit)

Info:
The solid tumbling tones found on this EP are all thats needed as an introduction to these two accomplished producer’s latest creation. Both strong forces in their own right, the pair come together once again on Sweatshop to present their vision of dancefloor harmony, and mystery!

‘Sirens’ is the aptly titled track whose crazy vibe is encapsulated by jacking, swinging percussion, wild pitching synth stabs and a haunting soprano soloist letting loose! This needs to be experienced to be believed, but the proof will be in the dancefloor, hands in the air and minds expanded!

‘Moirae’ works the tension with dense filtered stabs and crisp solid state percussion, driving this deep slab of dark dance into blissful moments of release. Mellow yet urgent, its a raw, purist electronic statement!

Joel Alter also offers up a special edit which focuses the groove in a slightly more kinetic direction, with reduced, aquatic synth work and a classic club energy that makes it an ideal addition to the package.

Info :
In A Mindset is the moniker of 27 year old Steven S.. The project was raised in 2009, after playing in various metal bands (FTE and Mortheim and still active in Serapeum), he decided to create something new inspired by various sound installation artists. His works range from dark ambient and neoclassical influences to industrial, noise textures and technoid/abstract rhythms.

While being active in the metal underground scene for almost 10 years, he’s been doing everything on his very own, choosing different paths during the sound creation process. Making electronic music became a huge part of his life the last 3 years.

He is also involved in SEC 1nine13.

It took him 3 years, until Steven decided to reveal some of his first tracks to the public. During these 3 years he was experimenting, building his equipment in search for his very own sound. “Compartments” is his first official release and more of a precursor for his debut album “Artifacts”, to be expected this autumn.

His sound has been described as Arcana meets Gridlock more than a few times, artists who have influenced him as well as many other different sources. While being active in the metal underground scene for almost 10 years, he`s doing everything on his very own, choosing different paths during the sound creation process. “Compartments” is a result of guitar-processed layers, ethereal soundscapes, noise textures and detailed percussion works.
