Aeon009 Is Expertly Crafted By Aeon Labelboss And Veritable Wunderkind Of The Multi-Faceted Anologue Electronic, German Dj And Producer Alex Niggemann. As A Firm Believer That A Collection Of Music Should Un- Ravel And Develope Like The Plot Of A Good Book, This Ep Is An Apt Offering From The German Maestro, Who Has Re- Cently Seen (And Is Still Seeing) Underground Chart Suc- Cess With His Release ‘Materium’ On Poker Flat, As The Likes Of Sven Vath, Tale Of Us And Mano Le Tough Con- Tinue To Drop It To Revering Masses Across The Globe. Following Successful Releases On Poker Flat, Compost Black Label And Last Night On Earth To Name A Few, ‘Abaton’ Carries On His Chameleonic Success. The Title Track Highlights Niggemann’s Affinity With Texture And Genre- Defying Sound, As He Mixes Ethereal Chords With Stark Ashen Synths For A Truly Goose Bump- Inducing Musical Experience. First On Remix Duty Is The Outfit Quantum Entanglement, Comprised Of Lee Jones And Fink, Who Provide A Some- What Mellow Interpretation, Leading Into A Satisfying Deeper Progression. Irish Producer Chymera Evokes An Eery Landscape With His Rework Of The Track, With The Tentative Sound Of Synths Juxtaposed With Murkier Sonic Trails And A Tip- Toeing Bassline. Niggemann Rounds Off The Ep With ‘Tripping Minds’ - A Maze Of Rhythmic Curlicues That Dance Around Mel- Ancholic Pads And Descend Over A Bassline That Tru- Ly Packs A Punch, Causing The Listener To Yearn For A Dancefloor, Or Reminisce On A Past Moment Of Musical Clarity That Can Only Come From The Most Prolific Of Mu- Sic. The Fifth Track Is A Beatport Exclusive In The Form Of A Lee Jones Remix. This Collection Of Intelligent, Almost Lugubrious Sonic Ex- Pression Is A Fitting Display Of How Far Alex Niggemann, And Indeed His Aeon Label Have Come; Catapulting You Into A Darker, More Aggressive And Impressive World Of Musical Capability.
