Released 18th March 2016
180 G Vinyl LP | Gatefold cover with full art, booklet and sticker
'Soil' is the first release on [ NIL∅S ], a music label from Third Stone, the organisation behind the fashion brand [ JULIUS ]. Julius’ collections and work exist in the heart of the fashion industry, showing during the Paris Men’s Collection, and attracting a following from many international artists including: Nine Inch Nails / Marilyn Manson / Richie Hawtin / Ben Klock / Marcel Dettmann.
Julius has always been a crossover of music, art, and other vectors, and not simply just a fashion brand. [ NIL∅S ] now incorporates this and transmits the industrial ethos of the brand within a new sound-approach.
For the first release, [ ENA ] has created 'Soil', a piece incorporating the world of [ NIL∅S ] through sound. This concept album is one track, extending over 40mins. Rather than structuring small details, the album is an atmospheric, mono tone space, created through a mixing and layering of sound. On the top of this industrial sound, [ ENA ] has inserted elements of colour, creating a piece with a dramatic variation of sounds.
For the vinyl version of the 'Soil' project, the creators of the label have put together a deluxe package. A black 180g pressing housed in a beautiful gatefold cover with artwork from the [ NIL∅S ] collection, with a newsprint booklet and transparent sticker. The full 'Soil' piece has been edited to fit the LP format. Mastered by Lewis at Star Delta and pressed at MPO, a very limited amount of these LP's are being made available in Europe through selected retailers.
