Toronto-based Hypnotic Mindscapes deliver 4 analog grooves for their eponymous vinyl debut. Founded by Cosmic JD and managed by a tight-knit group of artists, Vol. 1 explores the liminal spaces where electro paranoia meets 90s techno euphoria. Berlin-based Canadian Tro kicks-off the EP with a melancholic trip into a future where machine bleeps duet with FM chord melodies. A2 sees established Ecuadorian producer Nicola Cruz’ Fauna Extinta alias present an energetic modular outing that still maintains his dramatic flare and lightness of touch. On the flip, Berlin-based Ecuadorian Chicaiza delivers a skittering electro bomb with hints of vintage trance. Elusive Toronto live-act Payphone round-off the EP with a deep and cinematic tour of the cosmos.
