Violet Sea/Aura

Coldharbour Recordings
I suspect that Pavel’s a musical architect at heart, who occasionally feels obliged to throw the clubs a bone. As such, you learn to look at the label releasing to clue you in to what mode he’s in. That artistry’s still evident in the deep and touching tracks ’Aura’ and ‘Violet Sea’, but the tempo and bass have club purpose, while the breakdowns (‘Violet’s especially) add greater warmth than his average.
