B2 Mekas – Atmen
Aula Magna Records presents Atmen by Mekas, a storming record that reveals the artist’s latest techno explorations in full effect, featuring Stockholm LTD label boss Pär Grindvik as guest remixer. A techno statement shaped by melodic and rhythmic interactions that draw the listener into the artist’s profound sound world.
The A-side opens with the powerful beat of Clark Nova, a cut that moves forward with a modulating synth line and simple but cleverly designed percussions. This is followed by Unknown Soldier, an intense techno weapon that reflects the distinctive sound of Mekas.
The B-side features both versions of Atmen, starting off with Pär Grindvik’s dance-floor rework of the title track that combines a fresh arpeggiated motif and a powerful groove with the emotional spirit of the original. Atmen closes the record, an epic ambient techno track built with deep atmospheric synth lines on an intelligent stripped down breakbeat.
