Greyscale brings in the New Year with its first release for 2022 with Mood Series #51.
Støll is at the helm for this edition with Ajax, a 3 track EP with beautiful examples of highly catchy atmospheric dub techno. 'Helix' is the perfect opener with its beach scenery vibes and hypnotic aquatic sounds. A gentle track that works in elements of a house music to make this an easy go to for any techno or house DJ. 'Redux' goes heavier on a more pronounced beat with a light shuffle over the most graceful of chord washes. An outstanding early set sound that lays the foundation of a gentle but serious balance in the soundscape. Magnificent! The title track is the most daring of the 3 tracks beat wise.
A unique ending to this EP as it pushes the limits in exploration in dub techno production. You will find yourself playing this one over and over no doubt about it. Støll will be a name to watch for as this EP is next level craftsmanship. Hear for yourself!
