Description

After his last release got Aphex Twin’s seal of approval with tracks featured in his-majesty’s dj-sets last year, Holy Similaun debuts on the label with new EP Hegenrax.

The work (to be read He-gen-rax) attempts to explore the fascination for contradiction and the opposites in a conceptual framework by ideally contrasting a motor disorder (Apraxia) caused by damage to the brain and a controlled chemical reaction (Heterogeneous Catalysis), and places its music where the boundary between the two fronts merge.
Four tracks operate under the same blurry skies, polluting semantic memories with augmented-nostalgia and a sense of failure of the collective, but managing to see a possible future through suburban fractures.
Far from being a mere technical exercise with an objective look, Hegenrax emotionally dilates inside an intimate inner space as to want to reach a more intensive zone beyond – outside – standard perceptual thresholds—and this process sounds joyously modern and classic at the same time.
