HVN039 – Khidja ‘Impossible Holiday’
Release Date Feb, 10 2017
Ralf Schmidt has always been a nomadic soul. A spirit that reflects into his expansive take on house music. Yet, his first installment for Hivern might be his most diverse work to date. Four tracks with traces of
techno, house, electro and even trance that showcase Aera’s vivid vision and pristine production skills.
“Bibimbap” starts things off by contrasting sparkling ambiences with caustic electro-infused sequences that keep meandering while a gauzy melody provides a mystifying counterpoint. “Thai Park” presents a
much more humid atmosphere, pairing a woozy bassline with the shimmering tones of digital synths and building up the tension with menacing leads that sound as a swarm of tropical insects gliding through the jungle. On the flip, “Rotunde” builds around a rubbery bass, heavenly plucked notes and effervescent arpeggios. It’s a serene take on trance, that reminds us that there’s no need for saccharine to reach bliss. “Lumen” is the most vigorous track of the release, providing a heady trip through steady chords and playful arps with cyberdelic accents. It might have a big-room kick, but with all the nuances of a headphone-treat.
The 12” comes wrapped in a sleeve by Barcelona-based designer Xavier Marín.
