Berlin based producer Kareem (aka Patrick Stottrop), Founder of Zhark Recordings Berlin, announced a new EP titled Ligeia which is out today via Aesthetical. According to the press release, On this release we ﬁnd the title track “Ligeia” as well as the tracks “Die Erwartung” and “Richmond”, taken from The Garden of Time LP recording session from 2019. These 3 tracks set the prevailing mood for 2 subsequent cuts, “Horus” and “Sorcerer”.
While Richmond follows a more andante direction “Legeia” presents a unique combination of drones engulfed in a wild & hectic Technoid percussive Inferno. “Die Erwartung” on the other hand might resemble in its overall mood the Rheingold Prelude (in a higher register) with its drone-like strings layer build up. While “Horus” and “Sorcerer” are recent tracks form KAREEMs current live set and were recently arranged to ﬁt into the EP format. Both tracks build on static percussive hostility and climax towards their middle parts to an overall acoustic orgy of reverberating string strikes and high-pitched drone oscillations.
