Phenomena begins the Spring season with a new offering from label boss Solid Stone. The Canadian artist got the year underway in fine style with his 'Monsoon' EP. Released in February with support from electronic luminaries Adriatique and Tale Of Us, the two track offering furthered the astral aesthetic which has now become a hallmark of the Montreal resident. Now following a well received remix for Banana Cat's 'Derecho', Solid Stone returns to his comfortable home of Phenomena for the highly anticipated 'Ritual' EP.

With melodic techno currently thriving Solid Stone's forward thinking sound is one of the genre's freshest at the moment. The perpetually in demand remixer has crafted two more exceptional productions, both with a great nose for the dance floor. Beginning with the title selection 'Ritual' we see the Canadian artist exploring dark, bassy rumblings and spaced out motifs. Murky and mysterious in equal measure, the piece flows through wispy atmospherics and astral arps with an effortless ease. The first of two breaks serves as a cosmic reservoir, uniting percussive flurries and mind melting modulation, before shifting energy into a second act bridge and brooding finale.

The companion piece 'Lucid' serves as a worthy complement with its icy design and dark yet emotive undertone. Solid Stone's knack for crafting shadowy storyboards has never been more evident, with a backdrop of prophetic textures perfectly encasing the tight framework and free flowing sonics. Fiery percussion and ghostly vocal fragments build tension throughout the first act, before stripping down into muted kicks and dulcet hooks. The vocal narrative continues to evolve as the main break unfolds, travelling through a percussive haze as billowing swells elevate the mood for a poignant finale act. Dark, brooding and acutely contemplative it might be Solid Stone's most subversive creation to date, bridging moments of both drama and emotion across its eight minute journey. A look forward into the future and perfectly rounding out a stunning two track offering from the Phenomena label boss.
