Prior to even thinking of hitting play – boost up the sub-woofers, turn up the volume and enjoy the stretch of your mind with the roughly thirteen minutes single.

Intriguingly, the A side – the French entitled Voyage Au Bout Du Temps headed by Vassilia features the half-spoken word text of the Greek poet Miltos Sachtouris.

Whilst the B side is the English announced Mary Lou headed by Tidis of even darker and equally scathed surface, though only a just over a third of the length.

Vassilia Guilloteau has no website or social media page to which I can link – Tidis does have a social media page.

Abstract City – Single – Vassilia Guilloteau & Tidis is available on iTunes.*

The first track to surface from the album, Παπαρούνα (Poppy), was itself released as a standalone single at the tail end of last month.

The swirling thermals of electronica, theremin and vocals of Παπαρούνα drift through the room as though an albatross gliding effortlessly far out over the ocean transporting the listener, too, into a higher stratosphere and away from the hubbub of the day.

With a prolific output dating back to 2015, sometimes alone, other times in collaboration the latest release, the single  Jump Cut / The Broadcast which came out on the 20th (available on bandcamp) I am pleased to say finally catches up with contact originally made back in January of last year.

UnknownArtist, unlike the project name suggests is far from unknown more locally and  is regularly found on the bigger stages in Greece along with occasional appearances more widely across continental Europe.

Jump Cut / The Broadcast as it says on the tin is a single, lasting approximately five and a third minutes, of two distinct halves with the opening section being a gently undulating flow of subtle waveforms and the closing chapter being of choppier waters.

The newest release to surface is the one track plus one remix single Quantum Vacuum Generator which was released on the 16th. The original version is just over nine and a quarter minutes of industrial acid trance deeply influenced by the current Belgian New Beat Scene, making this one of those very occasional reviews of music at the cutting edge of the latest fashion.

A ten track album (available on bandcamp) which is full of luscious melodies and tender moments with the contrasts of introspective dour lyric pivoting against the slightly summer of love feel to the music that float wistfully through the room – affords for an LP of intrigue.

The antepenultimate song being the acoustic Dread & Breakfast.
