Leonidas + Kay Suzuki return with more raw, deep and psychedelic grooves

Following Leonidas’s warmly received debut “Sequential EP”, featuring the cosmic collaboration with Kay Suzuki, “Interstellar Vibrations” (and “Interstellar Meditation”) which has won plaudits from several deep/psychedelic purveyors such as Theo Parrish, Nick the Record, Cedric Woo (Beauty & the Beat) and Manuel Göttsching (E2-E4), Leonidas + Kay Suzuki return with a higher tempo, deep, dancefloor friendly EP, without losing any of the analogue warmth and phatness that characterised the Sequential EP.

A1: Revolve consists of a series of deep, psychedelic, analogue synth sequences over an infectuous, raw, driving drum machine groove and accentuated by warm, flowing synth pads, building to a crescendo of evolving and responding analogue grooves and beats.
B1: Momentum is a driving, timeless, epic 11½ minute mid-tempo deep house journey reminiscent of the best Chicago, Detroit and British acid-house/techno.

Both tracks have been created using the Roland TR-707’s sequencer triggering the analogue synths which have been manipulated live and recorded as live performances. Additional layers of analogue synths were then recorded live and layered/arranged. None of the sounds have been created or triggered using the CPU, as part of the duo’s commitment to a raw, warm, analogue aesthetic.


レーベル前作でデビューを果たしたLeonidasがレーベル主宰ケイスズキと新プロジェクトを始動!

前作Sequential EPでの共作"Interstellar Vibrations"がTheo ParrishやNick The Record, Manuel Gottsching(E2-E4)と言ったディープなダンスミュージックの大物達から大絶賛を受けたコンビが前作でも全面に出したアナログシンセの質感をそのままに今回はよりドライブ感を増した直球ダンスフロアトラックを2曲収録。

A1のRevolveはサイケなシンセ・パターンが次々に表れその表情を変えながら深化していき、いつの間にかその音質とグルーヴに乗せられ未知なる次元へ連れていかれてしまうファンキーなサイケデリック・テクノ。B1 MomentumはA面よりもエネルギーレベルを更に上げた11分半にも渡るエピック作品。シカゴ、デトロイト、そして英国アシッドハウス/テクノの音響体験を昇華した壮大な音宇宙体験へ誘う。

両トラック共にRoland TR-707のシーケンスからアナログ・シンセをトリガーさせ、"つまみ"を生演奏しながら録音し、層を重ねるように更にアナログシンセを多重録音、編集。CPUで演算された音では無く発振器から増幅された電気信号による生々しい音の質感を大切にしたこのSYNQLOCKプロジェクトの哲学を最大限に体現した。
