Two years after Hyper Opal Mantis, Berlin-based musician and electronic producer Kangding Ray (aka David Letellier) announced the release of a new EP. Predawn Qualia is out on May 17th via his just launched new label ara. Title-track is the first excerpt.

ara is a platform for recording artists with unique sonic identities that seeks to induce deep emotion. While rooted in electronic club music, ara will not follow any prescribed sonic path, it will explore a palette of diverse sound worlds who evolve through parallel series of curated releases. Each series will represent either a concept or a particular musical direction, which will be mirrored by its own design approach.
