The clash of two greater artists is the clash of minimal synth and dark electro. This time, there is no room for an original track, but room for a remix. Two artists that have gained control, two artists that have some thing in common, and some things that are uncommon. As the lavishly created spasmic rhythms that follow a trail emblazoned by the most minimalistic of synth you’d ever lay your hands upon, but at the same time delivering the chaotic atmosphere of electro. Yes, electro was infused in the original version of “System Control“, but it’s even more infused with Ekman‘s style of electro, which has a muddy layer of atmospheric delight – to infect your senses with. There may be similarities between the two, but they’re in no way so similar that it wouldn’t make any difference if he (Ekman) lent a hand to the production. No, he has not produced the track itself, but his analogue remixing has been a similarity to be reckoned with.
When there’s a choice, you’re surely enough berated by Beläten, whom is the master of decision in this case, too. But from the choices he gives you, you must choose wisely. Therefore, even though there’s a rough enforcement from he who’s holding the strings, you can’t help but enjoy yourself. This remix is a part of a bigger picture, of Dmitry Distant’s contribution to the world as such, through his forthcoming release on the label – namely “Le Dérivé De L’Amour“. A four-tracked EP that gives you two original tracks and two remixes. Part of the Beläten-catalog as Jera, referring to the rune Jēran symbolized as the j-rune “ᛃ” of the Elder Futhark. The meaning of this rune is “season” or “harvest“, and you bet we’ve harvested the best for you, through our options.
So we’re proud to give you the remix by Ekman of the track “System Control“, created by Dmitry Distant. Prepare for the signature influences that only Ekman can deliver, which makes this track a little bit darker, but also more passive. There is something lurking in the dark, and the only way you’re going to find out is by listening to it. This is the first remix that we’re setting free for your listening pleasure, which makes this occasion all the more special to us – and to you. The Netherlands is calling, and they’re infiltrating your sound-scape as we speak. Stream this whole track and remix exclusively from Invisible Guy, until you buy the physical edition of this release, which comes in the shape of a cassette (C18). The release itself will be up for pre-order on the 31st of January.
