Finding a gem when going through a long series of promos is rare. Especially when the EP comes from a label and artist you’ve never heard about before.

Alexander Graas comes from the underground Psy trance scene of Goa. He also holds a residency as a chill and ambient DJ in Israel. The influences are clearly heard in Westpath. That despite sounding a bit minimal to start with turns out to be a very thought through production. Perfect as a starter.

Westpath is out tomorrow. Let’s hope the next EP from Highlands Music just as good.

1. Daniel Dexter & Nhan Solo – Our Thang

3. Daniel Dexter & Nhan Solo – Our Thang (Luca Lozano & Sacha Robotti Remix)
4. Daniel Dexter & Nhan Solo – Charlie Brown

Off26, following this summers wave of soul- and hiphop influenced beats (Solomun, Noir, Oliver S, etc), the Berlin label drops an excellent release. After the recent compilation OFF25 (2,5 years of OFF Recordings) the 26th volume is a fresh start for the label and might just be their best release so far.

Out on Beatport since few days.
