A regular at the Vision Ekstase parties at Stuttgart’s Lehmann Club, Rove Ranger now joins the imprint following his debut on Android Muziq released earlier this year.
VISION II – CONVOLUTION succeeds David Lohlein’s enthralling opener on the imprint that continues to pick up traction amongst some of techno’s most revered names including the likes of Ben Sims, Efdemin, Randomer, Luke Slater, Amelie Lens and many more.
The simple yet effective opener, ‘Secrets We Kept’ features a catchy melody combined with a heavy kick drum and scattered Hi-hats before ‘Dish You’ turns tables with heavy percussions and ghetto vocals, perfectly suited for peak-time purposes. While the A-Side is influenced by present techno styles, the B-Side taps into the nostalgic realms of the genre. The highly energetic ‘Endless’ introduces relentless highs, driving oscillations and catchy yet groovy rave synths until ‘Unstable Current’ closes the EP with catchy string pads in combination with a sparkling acid line and revolving modulations.
As an artist collective, Vision Ekstase has set itself the task of harmoniously bringing together various types of art in the field of electronic music and creating unprecedented creative works that stimulate the viewer on both an auditory and visual level. Great emphasis is always placed on technical and creative quality. The elaborately produced music videos and photo series, through which not only the music artists, but also the filmmakers and photographers of the collective can develop freely and live out creatively on the basis of comparatively large projects, have a high priority in the collective.
Vision Ekstase pursues the basic goal of creating a community and the opportunity to indulge in total ecstasy. The term “ecstasy” describes a complete dedication in every area. “Ecstasy” is described as a new form of attitude to life. It is important for the collective to create complete freedom for the visitor, in which all his desires are fulfilled. In a society that is no longer focused on your own well-being and wishes, but is moving more and more in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Vision Ecstasy should consciously create a counter-proposal and give people back what they actually live for. The fun of life, joy, love and togetherness.
