Limited copies, vinyl only. Portugal’s Helena label continues its run of deep-ocean expeditions with the latest release from Dutch producer Aleks.
QUIET DAZE is the softest cut, synth washes and dubbed out voices suspended over an all-enveloping bass pulse. Choppy electro beats form the backbone for MOST U P as metallic notes and percussive hits spin off into the stereo field. Beatdown is the name of the game on the flip, as PLUS and VIOLENT/MIND GAMES both ride a 4/4 thud under trip-inducing hats and dubby textures. Aleks’ music is mirrored in detail by the beautiful sleeve art – this EP is the full package.
