’Aula Magna Records presents Atmen by Mekas, a storming record that reveals the artist’s latest Techno explorations in full effect, featuring Stockholm LTD label boss Pär Grindvik as guest remixer. A techno statement shaped by melodic and rhythmic interactions that draw the listener into the artist’s profound sound world.
The A-side opens with the powerful beat of ‘Clark Nova’, a cut that moves forward with a modulating synth line and simple but cleverly designed percussions. This is followed by ‘Unknown Soldier’, an intense techno weapon that reflects the distinctive sound of Mekas.
The B-side features both versions of ‘Atmen’, starting off with Pär Grindvik’s dance-floor rework of the title track that combines a fresh arpeggiated motif and a powerful groove with the emotional spirit of the original. ‘Atmen’ closes the record, an epic ambient techno track built with deep atmospheric synth lines on an intelligent stripped down break beat.
Mekas’ ‘Atmen’ EP is out on Aula Magna Records 15th October 2017.
