Alsi – Raw Duties – Part 1 EP [Thinc]
After two amazing records signed by Direkt and Viceversa, Australian label Thinc returns with the first of a two-part release featuring Romanian duo, Alsi. Titled “Raw Duties”, the EP delivers four chronic, cutting-edge minimal tracks perfect for the dancefloor. Based in Sydney, the team behind the venture aims to promote modern electronic music from carefully selected artists that are breaking down the barriers of musical expression and flow, allowing listeners, enthusiasts and even other selectors or producers to think beyond the norms. It’s no surprise that the venture rapidly gained massive support from the international underground movement.
Alex Florea (Limpid) and Silviu Tanase (Einzig) aka Alsi have been making waves in the scene for quite some time now, turning a lifelong friendship into a flourishing artistic partnership. Throughout time they continuously proven their skills, sharing the decks with artists like SIT, Mihigh, Amorf, Christopher Ledger, Miss I, Nu Zau, Suciu, Dece, Barac and Derek (to name just a few), while bringing forward inspiring productions with Colourful Recordings, Brahe, miNIMMAl movement, Diminutive, Elements, Body Parts, Project London, Playedby and their own playground Presence.
Side A kicks off with the eerie vibes of the title track “Raw Duties”, a percussion-heavy groover flawlessly complemented by a solid bassline, glitched vocals, evolving background pads and carefully placed breakdowns. Following, “Bold” drops an equally trippy uptempo rhythm powered by psychedelic sounds, reverberating effects and immersive vocal samples. On the flipside we first find “Sit With Me”, a twisted composition built around a syncopated beat that will definitely make anyone want to move their body and slide into otherworldly dimensions while the closing cut “The Light” reveals a raw minimal journey infused with bright keys and soaring synths that crescendo throughout. A highly recommended 12″ right here for collectors and selectors alike!
