about

Close your eyes and follow the sound with your third eye...

Athens-born, London-raised producer Leonidas draws from his life experiences and uses warm vintage analog equipment to express those magical moments, on this deep and varied debut EP.

A1: Sunrise feat. Duchy is a fierce, slow-mo disco-funk groove brought to life by RIM’s favorite singer Duchy, whose vocal captures the spirit of the summer after-party. A2: Sunrise dub seamlessly complements the vocal mix by going deeper into the sunset/sunrise groove with cut up vocals/harmony rhythms and spaced out effects. B1: Deep E feat. TK1 captures the raw energy and audio fidelity of vintage 70s & 80s machines expressed through this pure house groove. Co-written by the label founder Kay Suzuki, B2: Interstellar Vibrations feat. Kay Suzuki is a nine minute psychedelic journey, celebrating the synchronicity of the universe and meeting of kindred spirits, through a symphony of analog synthesizers. Digital EP includes bonus track : Interstellar Meditation feat. Kay Suzuki - A bealess ambient mix of B2 inspired by sharmanic experience both of them have and an ideal mix for deep meditation.

ヴィンテージアナログ機器を駆使し、質感を徹底的に追求した音景色を展開するレオニダスの衝撃デビューEP。

A1: Sunrise feat. Duchy はヴォーカルを起用したソウルフルなスロー・ディスコ・ファンク・グルーヴ。獰猛なビートにねじり交わる2種類のアナログベースとディープなシンセサウンドがソウルフルなヴォーカルを更に引き立て、ブレイク部で一気にサイケな世界へと展開。夏のアフター・パーティで見たあの朝日をレオニダスとダッチーが見事に演出した。A2: Sunrise dub はA1のディープ感と骨太なビートにより焦点を合わせたダブ・ミックス。カットアップされたヴォーカルとシンセサウンドがより深いサイケな世界を産み出し斬新な楽曲に仕上がった。B1: Deep E feat. TK1 は地中海キプロスにあるTK1のスタジオにレオニダスが訪れ制作された。TR-808、Rhodes、Prophet 5等の名機からハンドメイドの真空管アンプを始めとした数々のヴィンテージエフェクトを駆使し、唯一無二の美学を追求。 90年代初頭のクラシック・ディープハウスを彷彿させつつも地中海の美しい景色を見事に表現している。B2: Interstellar Vibrations feat. Kay Suzuki は9分を超える壮大なサイケデリック・アシッド・ジャーニー。80年代のシンセサウンドを代表するSequential Circuits製品、Pro-One、Prophet T-8、Drumtrak を駆使し、更に70年代の名機 ARP Odysseyが華を添えるようにメロディを被せる。敏感に反応するアナログシンセのシンフォニーがこの宇宙に起こるシンクロニシティと価値を共有する仲間との出会いを祝福する。デジタルEPにバンドルされるボーナストラック Interstellar Meditation feat. Kay Suzuki は古代から伝わるシャーマン体験にインスパイアされたB2のビートレス・アンビエント・ミックス。ヘッドホンをして瞑想をするのに最適。
