Continuing their quest towards the futuristic and experimental electronic horizon, the ever evolving and never compromising Visionquest are back, taking a journey into the deep and dubby, presenting the ‘Moonlight Shadow EP’ - three beautifully distinguished tracks from Germany’s finest, Seidensticker & Salour.
Title track ‘Moonlight Shadow’ takes you on a journey into the dark night, sublimely deep yet emotively eerie with thick dubby pads complimented perfectly by sonorous chords. While relatively low in tempo, a deep burning energy swells within the complex tiers creating skilled suspense and showcasing immaculate production.
On the flip, ‘To Real Time’ witnesses the Hamburg-Thessaloniki connection yielding fruits again. Originally from Greece, good friend George Boronas aka Square Room
Heroes pairs up with the German duo to show clearly what connects them: intimacy, deepness, freakiness, groove and spirit. Beginning with the subtle introduction of new instruments and rich sounds, the track soon gains force and momentum, building into wonderful layers and a kicking groove, directed much more firmly at the floor.
Rounding off this wholly satisfying package ‘From Dub To Dub’ is stripped back with broken beats, thick plush keys, delicate shakes and reverbed guitar licks, that all fall and rise within the warm depths and infinite atmosphere.
Jakob Seidensticker & Bardia Salour are names that are becoming very familiar on the underground circuit. While Bardia is a local Hamburg DJ and music connoisseur with a great influence on the whole of Hamburg, Jakob Seidensticker is an essential part on the internationally respected Wareika trio, releasing on highly acclaimed labels such as Perlon, Circus Company and Eskimo. After DJ'ing in various clubs and locations, they have finally found their base at the 'fulminant' EGO club in Hamburg.
Joining forces, Seidensticker & Salour's track selection and dub-influenced sound have been known to satisfy all hedonistic impulses ignited on the dance floor and this seamless EP on the mighty Visionquest imprint promises to do just that.
