After a split release with Chambray on Ben Sims’ Hardgroove in 2016 Greek-producer George Tounisidis is set to drop a new 12” for Symbolism in November entitled ‘Solidarity’.
With his first two cuts for the British DJ’s imprint picking up support from the likes of DVS1, Jackmaster and Anthony Parasole it’s unsurprising Sims has tapped him for a full release on Symbolism. Since signing, tracks from ‘Solidarity’ have also featured in both Ben Sims’ Boiler Room and Run it Red radio shows, resulting in a barrage of requests for release details which tees up the EP nicely.
Musically, ‘Solidarity’ moves between scattered sequences and stabs (‘Three Clicks Left’ & ‘Solidarity’), muted hypnotics (‘Nekyia’) and fractured acid (‘Workers’) while all retaining the distinct sense of movement and dynamism that typifies Symbolism releases.

After Mike Gervais’ strident work on SYM017, Ben Sims’ Symbolism imprint returns with Spanish newcomer JLG’s four track ‘Convolution’ EP.
Originally coming to Sims’ attention via the demo section of his ‘Run It Red’ radio show/podcast, Javier LG has previously released for Dynamic Reflection and Substance but it’s the quality of his unreleased material that secured his place on Symbolism.
Characterised by intricate and interwoven melodic rhythms, some at the forefront and some almost there, JLG’s debut for the label is an infectious and consummate affair.
