Mehta describes himself as a multi-genre artist, always experimenting with the latest sounds appearing on electronica's horizon. The Origins EP is Mehta's contribution to the growing wave of techno currently experiencing a groundswell in the prairies and Western Canada.
The goal was to present techno at its most raw and stripped, but maintaining an air of ambience, tension, and atmosphere.
"Jirtig" opens under the command of a dampened bass drum and dreamlike bells in the upper register. From there an echoing drone and crisp hi-hat lead the track into a direction that's deep, minimal, and hypnotizing.
"Siptik" is the heavier offering, marked by a rolling bass drum and a soundscape that's almost entirely percussion-filled. In the second half of the track, a disembodied siren-like synth and shifting drum tones bring a definitive atmospheric quality, a showcase of Mehta's creative signature.
The Origins EP is TECHNO.BLACK's seventh release, and the first to feature a Saskatchewan-based artist.
