Premiere: Heartless Returns on Steve Bicknell’s 6dimensions with “Johari Window” EP

Heartless kept his productions closely guarded until unleashing them on Steve Bicknell’s 6dimensions. Honing his craft with the gradual building of his studio. Drawing on influences from the likes of Aphex Twin and Surgeon combined with the rise of modular equipment, Heartless was armed with a medium to express.

Following up on his two previous releases on 6dimensions Impulse Model and Internal Crosstalk Heartless now presents us with Johari Window, expanding on the past and presenting the future sound of Heartless, full of the expected and of course the unexpected, hazy modular sequences, stretched, crushed and laid over kick drums from beyond.


A1. Unknown Self
A2. Four Rooms
B1. Blind Spot
B2. Hidden Image

Hazy modular sequences stretched out and crushed laid over unrelenting kick drums, creating a determination of mood in conjunction with futurist sounds. A long time outsider in the scene, Heartless kept his productions close guarded until recently. After honing his craft as a resident dj, promoter and sound boy, his emergence follows the gradual building of a studio. Spurred on by the recent rise of modular equipment, which finally presented the medium to express his vision, and a return of figures such as Steve Bicknell, whose sound and ethos were the source of early inspiration, Heartless is finally allowing his bruised and organic expression of techno to be heard via 6dimensions.

6dimensions is an exploration into balance and imbalance of the human mind’s natural make-up, Love, Fear, Joy, Hatred, Boredom and Sexuality.

Envisioning it in terms of a wider platform than a mere label, 6dimensions has been set up as “an outlet for creatives, a platform for expression without boundaries, presented and revisited in various creative mediums whether that be music, installations, events, audio stories, soundscapes, field recordings, visual art, performance, etc.” It will be a place where “each creative can question their own or other’s dimensions, focus on balance and imbalance, question the conscious and subconscious, fully immerse themselves to create from within by following feelings rather than the mind, evading what can be known as misguided teachings.”

Heartless’ Johari Window EP is out on 6dimensions and available HERE
