With its eighth release, Leipzig-based Holger records introduces yet another new artist: Vai has been active in the scene for a few years already, with various production teams and aliases. His new project is heading for a different path though: "Son of Idaia" is his most intimate work to date, a highly personal record. The elements in use are almost fragile, winding around each other and hard to grasp. So is the music: In between Ambient, Electronica and ghostly Techno it seems removed from its club origins and yet still reverberating these roots. A deep trip down the rabbit hole, dubby, immersive and glowing in all its calm beauty. Holger 8 introduces a new line of cover artworks, courtesy of Lukas Mehling.
