Our Friday selection: Alek S – Far Outside (made of CONCRETE, MOCD013)
‘made of CONCRETE’ kickstart 2020 with a long-awaited release from Alek S, one year after his latest EP. He’s joined by Sascha Rydell, one of his favourite artists, taking on remix duties.
Deep and dubby, immersive and dance-inducing – these coordinates can always be found in Alek S productions and this release makes no exception. ‘Far Outside’ introduces the deep atmospherics, with its metallic elements and slow burning melody, while ‘Sweatbox’ creates an entrancing mood with its timbered percussion and pulsating lead. ‘Ostkreuz’ stands for the dubby, restrained piece, with tempered percussion and bassline that give a womb-like feeling. Sascha Rydell’s rework of ‘Sweatbox’ rounds up the release in a dynamic manner, with a full-force techno heavy hitter.
