when harold boue aka abstraxion invited fantastic man into his studio after playing together the night before he didnt knew he was planting the seed for a new project. as he recalls. it was a day of intense sun in marseille with not enough sleep. but the result was so great that it inspired harold to work on new tracks around the idea of creating music to reflect his city: a bit rough. but luminous and influenced by elements of mediterranean. african and northern european cultures. this has translated into a heavily percussive sound. in which tribal disco grooves invoke the spirits of voodoo-techno. three cuts driven by warmly distorted rhythms. bursts of primitive drums. rubbery synths and uplifting chants that overall feel like the first sunrays after an excursion through a dark cave: both blinding and blissful. the projects name is a tribute to the astrological sign of harolds son. who was born at the same time as the music on the ep. it was the definitive signal he needed to convince himself it was the right time to start something new and different. and an event that for sure helps understanding the vibes that this music transmits: as pure. fresh and powerful as only a new beginning can be.
