Release Date: 27th August 2021
"This is Urban Poetry's 2nd 12“ vinyl release and it combines old and new in a beautiful and timeless way. Being located in Berlin, the label has been releasing 170 bpm music and beyond for almost twelve years now. Both tracks, Cruel Culture's Hyperion and Elusive Elements & Silent Mind's Immortal, first came out in 2012 as digital only releases and were musical milestones for the label. Their sheer beauty and grace is still breathtaking today. In Cruel Culture's Hyperion, celestial strings and atmospheric pads open up the doors for a dance of the titans, to which the track continually evolves into other spheres.
Tellus, uprising star and extremly gifted talent within the 170 scene, blesses us with a modern, breathtakingly fresh and epic remix of Hyperion. Razor-sharp drums lead through the track while the characteristic strings from the original accompany a super heavy and deep diving bassline. Top notch business! The flipside follows the same concept with Elusive Elements & Silent Mind's Immortal, which offers another classic from the Urban Poetry rows. Immortal is a beautifully crafted piece of contemporary electronic dance music and is, with its classic groove, earworm melody and minimal arrangement, somehow reminiscent of the early days of synthesizer music. Kodama, to some better known as Ahmad or Acid_Lab, joined forces with Turrican for the Remix. Staying true to the original the two added their special touch and gave it a new, more ethereous, outfit. The 12" release will be strictly limited and comes in a full color sleeve with a sticker and (Bandcamp) download-code."
