For our eighth release, we are glad to welcome back our dear friend Vardae for a second EP on the label. His first output on 2019 had been received really well, so he decides to took the things further with this new one, presenting a more textural techno approach while keeping his own signature of raw and minimalist precise techno.

This EP was mainly inspired by paintings of Pierre Soulage called “composition de rouge et de noir”. What we feel when listening to the release is the continuity between the tracks, especially the first three. We could consider them as different layers of the same composition. They feature the key elements of what we want to promote with the label, cycling alien atmospheres, granular textures and raw beats with a clearly identified sci-fi touch. The last track shows us a different sound palette from Vardae with a more melodic approach, dominated by gentle pads but still keeping some voices atmospheres in the background.
