Es alucinante darse cuenta que ya han pasado 10 años desde la primera incursión del sello Subsist Records en la escena electrónica (la de verdad, la que publica referencias de la máxima calidad y está siempre atenta al underground del underground ). ¿Qué mejor manera de celebrar sus 10 años en activo que publicar «Decade», su gran apuesta para este año?

Según nos cuenta Fon Civantos, responsable del sello valenciano, este lanzamiento es sin duda un gran desafío para Subsist Records que marca un salto cualitativo. A la larga lista de nombres que aparecen en su catálogo, ahora añaden, nada más y nada menos, que a Óscar Mulero, quien encabeza este EP con el track «Returning Wheel» donde el músico madrileño exhibe un mental techno perfectamente reconocible.

«Bmbmbmbm» es el track que completa la cara A de «Decade», esta segunda pista está a cargo de Shxcxchcxsh, el misterioso dúo de productores suecos que entrega una muestra de techno sincopado de métrica alterable. Stanislav Tolkachev abre la cara B firmando dos pistas: la primera es «Autopoiesis» –techno psicótico con armonías disonantes- la segunda es «180905_2377», un track de Group con un fondo oscuro, con elementos distantes y voces invertidas que le dan misticismo. El italiano Beat Movement cierra esta cara B con ‘Behind The Wall’, techno denso lleno de motivos brillantes. «Decade» concluye con una segunda versión de ‘Changing Wheel’ como un bonus track.

About the release:

‘Dualistic Concept’ EP precedes Oscar Mulero’s ‘Muscle and Mind’ album. It includes 2 original tracks of the upcoming album and the remixes by Stanislav Tolkachev and SHXCXCHCXSH.

The’Muscle and Mind’ album , featuring the ‘Dualistic Concept’ EP is the return of Oscar Mulero to long plays, after Grey fades to Green and Black Propaganda. “Muscle” and “mind” may seem antagonistic terms in real life, but in terms of music they make sense together, especially when talking about techno.
The coalition of introspection and abstraction is not incompatible with the rough and the percussive, and this album is a good example of this. The underlying message behind the title refers to the reflection of mental states in the body, the genesis of emotions where body and mind are managed by the sense of hearing.

Throughout these twelve tracks, one can dive into the musical world of this producer whose discourse mutates in every album, always intricate, always meticulous. Darkness acts as a thread and repetition as hypnotic therapy. But now, he sets his usual hard sound aside and looks for a much more cared for and precise sound , where there is room even for a harmony and musicality that go hand in hand with danceability.
The combination of atmospheres and rhythms is constant throughout the album. Each of the cuts has been prepared with few sonic elements. He takes elements away one by one, and keeps exclusively the necessary.

A record that has been developed during endless hours in airports and travelling, absorbing influences from all over the planet. Made in solitude but surrounded by people who don’t know what you are really doing on that computer. To close the circle, the album was mixed in professional studio using solid state technology, which gives this work a unique warmth that cannot be achieved in a domestic environment.

Muscle and Mind will be released on vinyl and CD. The digital version will include extra tracks which will also be published in an EP. This will precede the album with edited tracks from the album and remixes by Stanislav Tolkachev and SHXCXCHCXSH.
