Toronto label Parallel Minds will release its next EP, ‘Eight Two Five’ on 10th February.
Run by Ciel, Yohei S and Daniel 58, the label places an emphasis on highlighting local talent, with the new split EP featuring tracks from the latter two co-founders.
Daniel 58’s cuts, ‘If It's Dead Now, When Was It Alive?’ and ‘Grump When I'm Wake’, are cloudy, off-kilter club sizzlers full of jolting rhythms and heavy bass plumes. Yohei S tracks, ‘CContac’ and ‘Down By Three’, are similarly atmospheric, with foggy bass and skittering electronics floating around on top of dub-aligned beats.
Below, you can hear ‘CContac’, with its bouncy rugged house groove and deep, swirling rave chimes.
