With the 3-track EP Mantra JOIX opens a new dimension in his electronic music. For the first time he uses his own voice on a larger scale, giving it a machine-like sound that transforms and heightens the meaning of his German words.
The lead track -Mantra- refers to the techno movement in Germany in the 90s, which JOIX lived and breathed as a teenager. Those mystical experiences staying awake all night in rooms full of light and sound â€ came close to the trance states attained by chanting Mantras. This is the main idea and the emotional inspiration behind this pulsating A-side track.
A touch of nostalgia also comes through -WÃ¤chter der Nacht-. This tune channels the mysterious night, the search for ecstasy and self-dissolution in music clubs protected by the guards of night. Finally, Klimax is a dancefloor banger that distinguishes itself by whipping up immense energy, and its space-filling melody and enormous hall cascades.
