System003 (Vinyl Only)
Artikelnummer: 1843982 / SYSTM003
VINYL ONLY!!!!~~~~Following the downtempo pressure of Karma's 'How Ya Feel', System Music boss V.I.V.E.K returns to deliver the third release for his fledgling label delivered purely on 12' vinyl.~~~~The lush atmospherics of opener 'Mantra' suspend the listener in deep stasis, as slowly moving textures, strings and low end propel the track. 'Show Me' picks up the pace, with an unnerving vocal directing techno-influenced chord stabs, echoing percussion and an arpeggiated synth line that extends and expands itself into the forefront across the latter half.~~'Soundman V.I.P' brings earth-shattering sub weight and percussive bass stabs that clash with deep atmospherics that are meticulously engineered for big room soundsystems. Finally, V.I.V.E.K takes 'Asteroids', the title track from the label's first release and re-evaluates it with the help of an~~ethereal vocal line replacing the lyrics from the original.~~~~2013 has seen V.I.V.E.K's SYSTEM events go from strength to strength, proving Mixmag's claim of the soundsystem to be 'like nothing else you've heard' correct. As a producer V.I.V.E.K has seen his music released on esteemed labels such as Deep Medi, Tectonic, Greensleeves Records and Soul Jazz.
