shlomo opens the ep with a deep and droning, yet uptempo track. ben gibson continues on the a-side with a synth and tom-driven track, in which the main synth really draws you into the track. takaaki itoh is put on the b1 spot and continues the deep vibe the artists set on the a-side, yet in a more minimalistic way. his track keeps on evolving and growing ever more, while the track in it s core does not change that much. overall severity closes the ep off with a moody banger. this dance floor oriented track focuses on percussive elements and the drums a lot. this track is one of the last ones made by the late max_m, who formed overall severity together with wrong asessment, which makes this ep a little bit more special. four different artists, but a great sounding ep with four tracks that compliment each other really well!

it might not always be obvious, but music as escapism can serve as a radical social statement. what some may see as daydreaming or imagination of impossible realities, can constitute a sort of revolution of thought, the seed of a more human and sentient worldview. although on a first listen, high-level basis, it may seem as if the music contained in informa’s 10th release is a series of psychedelic, dystopian and otherworldly tools for escape, it might actually be a proposition for improvement, a route to self-discovery, a reflection on the true nature of our surroundings. although at no point in this release such high concepts are made explicit, there is a consistency in vision and methods present in the art created by the peers that label founder and owner deepbass has selected for this very special, celebratory release. encapsulating the product of eight minds, eight visions, in a common concept for evolution in unity.
repress 2016 , the arrangements are compiled by a selected group of producers focusing mainly on rhythms made for building. we wanted to merge the idea along side true innovators of modern architecture and the thought process it took for reinvention during those times.

the mysterious troy returns on dr with his second ep ever released. it seems like the perfect time for troys northbound ep, 4 very distinctive, cold, yet beautifully designed pieces, which perfectly underline the atmosphere this time of year.
on the a side, detail and evolution are the foundation of the lengthy *bh3*, which also futures a hard hitting remix by takaaki itoh from japan.
the b side features two more melodic cuts. *archer* stresses the journey into the cold, with its synth work nearing dissonance, while remaining in complex and admirable harmony. the title track *northbound* is a more straight forward loop, which builds up to something rather chilly and unheard before.

perception of time is a variable that transcends any state known to us (or presumed). dragged by a force majeure, the dionysian spirit is a life force and chaos of becoming. the apollonian spirit is fleeing from the unpredictability of events. the eternal return is a trap which is subjected to static human destiny.
