Berlin-based techno mavens Mind Against return to the label with their latest dance floor delivery, Walking Away. Now available on Tale of Us' fabled Afterlife imprint, the EP is available in both via your streaming platform of choice and in fresh-pressed 12' inch vinyl fashion.
The first of two tracks featured on the release, "Walking Away" is fueled by uplifting harmonic crescendo and the vocal prowess of Port St. Willow, built on a foundation of a resonant drum pattern. "Bloom" follows up with a unique furver – reserved in nature it charmingly explores both spring-like tonalities and melancholic piano chords. The track curates quite an atmosphere through the build up to a gradual and subtle peak.
The EP strikes that special balance of light and dark which makes Mind Against’s tracks uniquely cathartic. Reflecting on their approach, the Berlin bred duet share "At a time when everything is labelled and stereotyped, we felt the necessity of walking away from genres and trends, making a record that is very personal to us, and hopefully will transcend time." Time will indeed tell on their latest offering's longstanding impact – though undoubtably Mind Against has reached euphoric heights once again, this time by a patient and reflective path.
