Ukraine's OTTO K has been busy producing beautifully crafted widescreen Psy-Trance in his home city of Dnipro, and whilst we've almost got enough tracks and demos to fill an entire OTTO K album (yes, he's been that prolific despite the turmoil on his doorstep) we'll start with two - MOTION IN EMOTION and SEA OF SOULS, both of which come with the freshest of remixes.
MOTION IN EMOTION opens the EP, taking time to establish an hypnotic groove, before dropping into a 'spooky / inner laugh' esque melody at the halfway point.
We're especially excited to have Berlin based DJ / Producer SIOC (Speedmaster Records) make his debut on the label with a hard, deep and hypnotic rework of MOTION IN EMOTION. A true stalwart of the European underground Trance and Techno scenes, SIOC is currently forging an authentic new sound that incorporates the speed and depth of PSY, with the very best of late 90's Trance atmospheres, found on classic labels such as Bonzai, Planetary Consciousness, and Eye Q.
Liverpool's LOSTLEGEND, another EL-EL debutant, takes things deeper on track 3, with a slower, techier, but no less trancey, take on SEA OF SOULS, utilising gated vocal samples and acid FX on either side of the expansive, cinematic break.
OTTO's original Psy-Trance cut of SEA OF SOULS rounds off the package with a borderline Balearic breakdown providing a moment of relative bliss on one of our hardest releases in recent memory.
