Designed to feel equally at home on the sub-heavy sound systems of haze-swamped warehouses and the intimacy of living room hi-fi setups, Inertya’s music draws on both the visceral energy of dancefloors and the technological thoughtfulness of modular synthesis. Anthemic techno and delicate experimentalism melt into each other in precisely constructed tracks, which efficiently and stylishly transcend electronic genre boundaries. This multi-faceted approach to production is second nature for Inertya, who has a decade of diverse musical experience under his belt, spanning straight-ahead rave-ready techno, abstract experimental sound art and evocative, other-worldly soundtracks.
Three original Inertya tracks are supplemented by a pair of remixes on the New Dawn EP, one from First Light Records’ own Dujat and one from hot-tipped Parisian producer, Aho Ssan. For his reimagining of Apophenia, Dujat unwinds the tight layers of Inertya’s original track before pulling them back together in triumphant new forms. Aho Ssan takes on Apophenia from the unique perspective that has earnt him enthusiastic praise from all corners of the electronic world in recent years. The rich sonic tapestry of the original track is twisted and warped into a gorgeous cacophony; subverted and saturated to near breaking point. From its gently pulsing opening, the track swells to the breath-taking proportions of a noise-drenched electronic symphony.
