JackWasFaster, Hayk An, Inner Axes - 001
12 / January / 2018
Aylevs Music is a brand-new record label out of Barcelona, founded to explore club focused electronic music with influences ranging from ambient to acid, from house to techno. The imprint kicks off with a standout EP from RBMA Bass Camp Madrid graduates JackWasFaster, Hayk An and Inner Axes.
This trio has worked together on a number of projects before now and here they all serve up super solo tracks that inaugurate this promising new label in real style.
The release is opened by Hayk An who has worked under other aliases for labels like Lapsus and Neonized and has played his experimental live set at important Spanish festivals such as So?nar Barcelona. With ‘Ovem’ he looks to the club floor with a sophisticated and melancholic house sound that slowly progresses and sucks you in.
The drums are dynamic and slick and the chords full of emotion.
The second track is ‘El Topo’ from JackWasFaster, who is in the ranks of the Rotten City label, and has also played live at So?nar Barcelona as well as UVA Festival, among others. His fine effort here is a synthetic tune that was inspired by the catalogue of Running Back with a retro touch. It has breezy melodies that make you feel good, with
a rich bassline and loose groove that will pull people to the floor.
Inner Axes—a new project in parallel with his other alias Ghostly Enemies—closes the release with the excellent ‘Odyssey’, which is named in honour of the Mars Odyssey. It’s an atmospheric techno track with mid-tempo drums and dark and melancholic
chords and melodies that speak of an intergalactic journey.
This is a moving EP filled with house and techno sprinkled with some magic space dust, and marks a great first release for this new label.
