Cassegrain is back with a collaborative EP. The Berlin based duo of Alex Tsiridis & Hüseyin Evirgen present new work recorded alongside DJ Nobu, Tensal & Lady Starlight via their own Arcing Seas.
Leaning towards the more heady, high octane end of the genre – the three track EP showcases the duo’s natural affinity for collaboration, maintaining Evirgen & Tsiridis‘ characteristic finish and attention to detail, whilst providing ample space for the guests to properly colour the work.
CT01 (alongside Tensal) marries caustic drones with a potent lead sequence to produce a perfect peak time roller; whilst CN01 (with DJ Nobu) riffs on a more melodic, stepping approach – maintaining that same rousing energy, but with a more psychedelic bent. CLS01, the duo’s collaboration with Lady Starlight comes in at almost 11 minutes, an ambient techno journey that warps and shifts organi-cally across it’s extended run time – complete with beat-less intro and multiple segues that work to bind the piece and it’s different sections into one, cohesive narrative.
Effective and impeccably produced – but with a keen ear for new & exciting sonics within the genre – this first collaborative outing proves an enviable addition to the duo’s already impressive discography.
