continuing its cosmic techno research path, subosc is happy to present the latest work from hydergine. known for his deep and dub influenced techno releases on labels such as phorma, modelisme, knotweed and ranges, he delivers two ambient influenced techno tracks with a mental and dancefloor attitude. driving grooves, pulsating synths and melancholic melodies are the main elements of the original tracks, which journey narrates about cosmic energies, self healing and mental stimulation.
the “omega point” is, at fact, a spiritual belief and a scientific speculation that everything in the universe is fated to spiral towards a final point of divine unification. “light from light” puts emphasis on the eternal and bright light of wisdom, which allows to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight. wisdom leads a person to overcome feelings of helplessness, powerlessness, anger or aggression by non-understanding of external elements and internal acknowledgement. the ep includes two immersive, dreamy, enlightening and spaced-out electro infused versions by artefakt (delsin / field records) and 2030 (construct re-form / clft).
