As summer falls away, Aconito Records rises again with more experimental sound designs and deep atmospheres on this new limited-edition record, Gaia's Archetype. Featured here are two productions by Hironori Takahashi of Japan, as well as an edit from label owner Nax_Acid. Inspired by the emotions he discovered at Japan's 'Metamorphose' open-air festival, Hironori wished to express feelings of contrasting unity - light and dark, human and nature - in his music.
'Outgass' is an emotional journey filled with soft clicks and glitches. Drenched in organic warmth, the main focus is the oriental melody, which meets with ethereal synths, rising, intensifying, and warming the atmosphere like the first lights of sunrise.
While 'Outgass' might summon visions of meditative sea-side lounges, 'Serv' finds its home deep within the earth, on pitch-black subterranean dance-floors. The rhythms are sharper and more insistent, with swirling clouds of noise and sinister vocal sample... this is tribal underground dance music from the future.
Nax_Acid's 'Outgass' edit immediately dives into wind-swept hypnosis, melting the rising chords from the original version into subtle droning polyrhythms. Added to this is Nax's unique syncopated percussion and a fuzzy, nostalgic melody that floats across the soundscape.
