Aus Music continue a stellar 2017 and begin the festival season with the welcome return of long-term label friend Sei A. Having released a total of 2 EPs and the extolled ‘Space in Your Mind’ LP on the label, his return comes in the form of a pensive but purposeful 4-tracker titled ‘Alone’.
The title track starts things off with rich atmospherics accumulating over a distant thud. Mournful melodies snowball as delayed synths interweave and build a warm, comforting layer. ‘Bring It On’ then recalls his previous outings on Aus as intricate, shuffling drums generate an deep, hypnotic groove.
‘Holding’ then rolls out a dubby, eyes down tone as sunken drums propel mournful melodies before ‘Time Control’ balances an urgent drum-loop against a gently tumbling motif that brings a heartfelt set of club tracks to a close.
