for its third release interstate records welcomes dold. throughout releases on polegroup, mindtrip or his very own imprint arsenik, the swedish producer has shaped a distinctive sound - raw, minimalistic yet warm and energetic. for ins003 he delivers two tracks. while the title track, “version”, demonstrates dold’s darker side, “rise and fall” bears a more hopeful tone. although the vibes are different, both tracks are driven by the same raw 909 - infused drums that have made dold one of the hottest swedish talents in the first place. as in previous releases, the two originals are accompanied by two remixes on the b-side. the first one comes from virgo and soma records protege slv. while focusing on the synth of the title track, smacking percussions and dark tribal sounds add a more punchy and energetic vibe to the original. klockworks affiliate newa, however, laid eyes on the pads and strings. through carrying “version” into slightly more playful and spheric worlds the georgian delivers an ideal closing to this records.
als doldrums wird das unter seemaennern gefuerchtete gebiet rund um den aequator bezeichnet, in dem kaum ein wind weht, in dem es schwül ist und in dem unvermittelt gewaltige unwetter ausbrechen koennen.
mindtrip is glad to introduce dold, a huge young talent from the swedish techno scene. known for his first releases on float records and his platform arsenik, ‘shutdown ep showcases a big range of his musical identity. dold takes us into a hypnotic journey with his melodic interpretations, while he moves things faster on the darkest side of this ep, with his driven techno tracks fully inspired by 909 patterns and analog synth jams. we are really happy to welcome such a young and furious spirit on the label, and we do believe his tunes work best if you play them out loud. this is mindtrip!
doldrums ist das psych-pop-projekt des 22 jaehrigen airick woodhead aus toronto. ein sound der zwischen zerhackten samples, geisterhaften vocals und percussions zu schweben scheint, alles zusammengehalten durch airicks stimme, der wohl androgynsten im alternative-electro universum.

the mutable nature of our lives leads to a constant pursuit of musical incentives. last month we launched a new series on mindtrip aiming to bring together diverse sounds and musical backgrounds under a mutual project. mutable minds edition ii welcomes the very exceptional work from five of our favorite artists out there. the release opens with our head honcho pfirter and his anti-routine that comes with his trademark modular effect and a well-constructed sequence. sleepwalker belongs to mexicos finest techno export aka fixeer who delivered a pounding track with great energy. on the b-side things are getting deeper and more tripped out yet still powerful and intense with the swedish duo kuf & dold and their track mint. mutual minds ii closes with a familiar name that is none other than jonas kopp who returns to mindtrip with a very interesting piece that comprises a narcotic feeling and space stabs. the final outcome of the second mutable minds edition perfectly describes the musical perspective and ethos on mindtrip. hope you enjoy this trip to the fullest. this is mindtrip!
