[dropcap]After[/dropcap] a critically well-acclaimed first tape, released on his own X-IMG label, Emad Dabiri, a.k.a. SΛRIN, is about to release his new 12″ Current Conflict on aufnahme + wiedergabe.
The Iranian born artist, raised in Canada and currently residing in Berlin, brings efficiency to an extreme. Relying on a very minimal setup and stripping his EBM- and Techno-influenced sound down to its absolute necessities, Current Conflict doesn’t want you to reflect on it too much—it’s out to smash dancefloors worldwide.
Four-to-the-floor beats, synth basses echoing the influence of Front Line Assembly and their contemporaries from the US and Canada, and the overall influence of New Beat is undeniable. The frequently used pitched down vocal samples make Sarin’s effort sound charmingly nostalgic, yet top-notch in terms of durability, and Spine—we exclusively premiere the video, created by Emad himself—even stood the Berghain test already.
Current Conflicht is released in August on aufnahme + wiedergabe, pre-order here
