Tracklist: 01 Odyssey 02 Hidden Past 03 Hidden Past (Fort Romeau Remix) Info: Dark Matters label head Amirali returns with the expertly crafted Odyssey EP, employing his vital understanding of space and texture to construct a highly emotive release featuring a remix from Fort Romeau. The three track package is out digitally on May 14th followed by the vinyl release a few weeks later. Leading on from his critically acclaimed discography and curatorial work with the inimitable Dark Matters imprint, Amirali enters 2018 with grand plans for the future. He is currently conceptualising a live stage show whilst continuing to provide a platform for all manner of weird and wonderful music. ‘Odyssey’ is a striking example of Amirali’s penchant for songwriting, as well as a testament to his sonic identity, merging memorable harmonies with heartfelt vocals and complex soundscapes. ‘Hidden Past’ veers more towards the dancefloor, brandishing vast sonic explorations and levitating pads amongst detailed drum patterns. For the ‘Hidden Past’ remix, Fort Romeau mutates the delicacy of the original into a spaced out dose of peak time house, gradually building rich harmonies around a fierce rhythmic motif. On the creation of this forthcoming EP, Amirali states: “Nothing is more important than my craft which is the main reason I’m here. There’s no better satisfaction than to create an amazing piece of music, that’s my happiest point in life. I don’t want my work to just be good or ok and that takes a lot of effort and sacrifice in life. I got to a point where I said to myself I have to go and disappear for a while, go be normal and do normal things. Instead of being on the road all the time, stay home, create an environment I like to write music. There have been many experimentations involved in my upcoming material. I wanted to try and push myself to the limit and I believe I’ve succeeded. For me, it’s all about evolving and exploring areas I haven’t touched.
