ASCETIC003LTD - VA_02
Ascetic Limited is back with its second VA.
Brooklyn, New York based and founder of Feed The Raver, Craft begins the record with a deep and emotional track, titled Time Will Tell. A man that needs little introduction, from M_REC, Wrong Assessment provides us Golcanda, a groovy track with a funky lead, but dark mysterious vibe.
On the B Side, Argentinian Joaquin Ruiz brings big raw drum sounds with his heavy hitting, yet hypnotic tune, Rituals. With a recent release on Materia, Italy based Viels ends the record with Loneliness, a massive tune consisting of his signature complex sound.
ASCETIC002LTD - VA_01
Ascetic Limited presents it's first VA, compiled by it's founders Motionen, a duo who focus on deep, hypnotic and acid techno sounds. Barcelona based Glaswegian Deepbass, with a recent album released on his own Informa, supplies his deep ambient techno soundscapes on A1. Titled Returned, it travels through the use of large reverberant drones and percussions while being pulsed by a sub kick. With a previous release on Australian label Android Musiq, Dorian Gray's Solivagant is a beautiful journey of choirs and drones, held together by a stepping beat. Straight Away by HOBI is far darker and is driven by fast tribal beats and circulates with impressive voice-like textures. Finally Lanthan.Audio owner Christian Gerlach brings Ascending on B2 which is equally as deep and hypnotic, giving focus to a twisted dubbed chord.
ASCETIC001LTD - MOTIONEN - IMAGO EP
Imago EP is the first release by Motionen. The record starts with the title track, with experimental vocals transforming into bright, but soothing pads, offset by a dark, bass heavy, rhythmic beat. Side B begins with Aero, an open, atmospheric feel with scenic progressions bringing an upbeat vibe. Followed by Dialogue, which brings the listener back into a darker realm, with driving acid bass sounds and a boomy kick drum.
