After the brilliant E-Unity’s CD-ROM-1, Intramuros invite 2 new artists on a perfect split EP for eclectic DJ’s. 4 different vibes & tempos.
On A-side, Basic from Positive Education / St Étienne (FR) with 2 fresh & untemporal bass music anthems, he opens with Blaze, a loud bass roller, and kills you with 66 Order, his personnal vision of dubstep.
On B-side, Cabasa from Eclipse Tribez / Brussels (BE) opens with Good Trauma, a sublime deep electro track, then Algo Mod Arp, a crazy track exploring fields between metallic & mental drummy sounds and Aphex Twin, for the 170 BPM crew.

Following his stunning ‘Everything Is Nothing’ EP, which kicked off the Hubble Telescope Series for Solar One Music in 2015, Luxus Varta (aka Emeric Di Paolo) is back with a new four track EP for French label, Intramuros.
‘Rosenhan Experiment’ (named after David Rosenhan’s famous study to determine the validity of psychiatric diagnosis, published in 1973 under the title “On being sane in insane places”) takes us on another electro trip into the human mind with Paris The Black FU from Detroit Grand Pubahs once again making an appearance, on the track ‘Losquato’.
The EP opens with the wonderfully shimmering ‘Wenn’ before Luxus Varta makes striking use of his background as a drummer on ‘Lizzy’. ‘Losquato’ is a playful addition with stripped back rhythms under Paris’ story telling that bemoans a man’s work frustrations and resulting mental state (“I gave up therapy about a month ago. My therapist jumped out of a window”), while closer ‘Tempsun’ is almost melancholy in its measured minimalism.
Recommended for lovers of Drexciya and Dopplereffekt.
