exclusive premiere: Haokah – Ever Lasting [Vivus Records]
Haokah, one of the most intriguing names hailing from the wonderful Romanian minimal scene, present the 11th instalment in Vivus Records‘ catalogue, titled “144 EP”. Well-known for their mesmerising live sets and releases with Fake Society, Kapture and No Rush (split vinyl with Simone Adinolfi), the duo is back with yet another electrifying release that explores the limitless possibilities of modern electronic music.
Founded in 2016 by Tobias Laun and Daniel Broesecke, Vivus Records is a sublabel of the German imprint Particular and constantly delivers top-quality materials highly appreciated by the international underground community. Throughout time, we closely explored, premiered and reviewed some of their amazing EPs, so make sure you dig deep on our website in order to find out more about their previous materials signed by Vlad Arapasu, Camelia, Macarie, Daniel Broesecke, Direkt and Rowlanz.
Closing the EP, “Ever Lasting” lays down a spacey affair, full of cosmic noises, acid touches and eclectic background textures. The steady-paced drumming patterns are smoothly complemented by a solid bassline while the ever-evolving narrative will definitely take anyone on a magical journey.
The first track, “Engage”, slowly sets off but steadily increases. That crescendo serves perfectly to prepare the listener for the second track here, “Between The Lines”. The bassline falls in focus from the very beginning while the perfect storm of background noises, coupled with a recurring but discreet vocal takes things to another level. The title track “144” drops an introspective mood, yet the pulsating bass and rotating elements will keep you constantly wanting more. Imagine the sunrise at a beach afterparty somewhere at the seaside with this track in the background… perfect! A highly recommended record right here for collectors and selectors alike.
