Holding steady after a busy 2017 season that saw her announce countless releases, Belgian techno architect Amelie Lens is now set to release her debut solo outing on her own label Lenske.
Named after her godchild, Basiel blazes with the truly euphoric, hi-NRG pulse that defines both Lens’ productions and the large-scope vision she has for Lenske. Tried and tested across the globe’s most demanding dance floors over the last year, no doubt this collection of tracks will turn into peak time missiles for the hotheads out there.
With its heavy kick stomp bashing the club’s entrance in straightaway, Never The Same sets the mood of the EP with unrestricted power. Soon drowned into a cavalcading deluge of squelchy acid from which emerges the pristine voice of Amelie. Energize continues the industrial drive of the EP, where Amelie’s vocals once again operate as a penetrating mantra, urging the dancers to stack up higher volumes of fortitude and spirit to keep up with the fierce rhythm of the drums.
Last but not least, the title-track Basiel drapes itself in a darker melodic veil, like a black hole spitting a malevolent mix of gut-churning bass vibrations, feverish batucada percussions and basement-wrecking kicks rising from deep beneath the earth’s mantle.
Basiel is set for release on November 23rd and will be available in both 12″ and digital formats. Listen to the title track, Basiel, below.
