Back again after the monstrous Amelthea’s Horn EPs back in 2018 is Alex O’Rion with an exceptional 4-track EP. After a strong year of releases on Hope, Replug, ICONYC and more, Alex returns to Sudbeat with ‘Alone’. The lead track is a strong tribal progger with his incredible sound design and attention to detail. Building a head of steam over the opening section, the break is like an oasis from the storm, drawing you deeper into Alex’ web. ‘Mastodon’ takes off from where ‘Alone’ ends. Punchier drums and a more insistent melodic core drive the track forward, opening the listener up to all manner of mental visuals. The dub mix of ‘Mastodon’ is an altogether different beast. Darker, deeper and more devastating. The bassline leads the way, grinding out a well worn path from the waist down. Finally, ‘With You’ offers some light relief with upbeat drums, uplifting pads and playful melodics.
Rodrigo Cortazar is one of the hottest names coming out of Mexico’s underground music scene and we welcome him with his first full single release on the label: “The Time Is Now”. On remix duties we welcome back the one and only Ewan Rill! The original mix is a pure groover build up on crisp beats while the throbbing bass provides lots of energy while rolling percussive elements keep the vibe flowing along with simply yet powerful synth stabs and tiny vocal snippets. Ewan Rill works his magic providing a darker offering with a haunting and menacing groove while playing along with the original elements but still adding plenty of melodic vibe to it and creating a true progressive gem.
Movement Machina opens our account for 2020 with a tempting two track release: ‘Lights Out’ and ‘Royale’. Joining the label last year with his extraordinary remix of ‘Tenacity’ by Amuze, which was picked up by Rauchhaus for our recent ICONYC Essentials compilation, the Mango Alley and Zerothree regular gets his first full solo release, and what a monster it is! A student of the open-minded approach to music, the Finnish-based artists crates two exceptional tracks full of emotive intrigue and allure. First up is ‘Lights Out’ a tough groover balancing precariously between Techno and Prog. Rubbery bass and scattergun hats ride the groove as vocal effects provide the melodic content in a classic light and dark tension fest. Conversely, ‘Royale’ takes a deeper, more considered path. Tribal drums lead the way as crazy effects and wild sonics share space with percussive energy on this heads-down early morning stomper.

A journey through the sky. Azure opens up like the sun shining through the clouds after a rainstorm. It beckons you on a melodic journey through the skies of Los Angeles. Imagine the smell of freshly fallen rain. Immerse yourself in a bass that tries to ground you while the melodies lead you into the sky. Minimalistic vocals draw everything together as the melodies and percussion intertwine creating a mesh that moves you like a cloud through an Azure Sky.
