Alex Niggemann releases Divergent EP on his faultless AEON imprint

Artist: Alex Niggemann
Title: Divergent/Luminance
Label: AEON
Cat No: AEON018
Date: Out Now!
Genre: Techno

AEON is a label that focuses on those mid to peak time house and techno tracks and with label manager, Alex Niggemann at the helm, to say it is in safe hands, is a massive understatement. The label has been running since 2013 and Alex has since been building a home for like minded individuals to help keep the ethos of AEON moving in the right direction. For AEON018, Alex steps back into the drivers seat and provides us with two tracks that span his melodic and deep techno sound.

First up on the release is ‘Divergent’ which is a emotional and deep melodic track that is built upon a great broken drum pattern and some very well constructed techno-like shakers and hi hats. When the track breaks Alex brings things to a very ethereal and stunning halt before things slowly build back into that delectable broken beat and deep groove. Stunning work again from Alex!

Next up on this rather tasty release is a track entitled ‘Luminance’ which blends that almost progressive melody and sounds with the deep percussive sounds of techno. The track is a stunning piece of emotional music that will transport you to the more thought provoking parts of your mind. The deep rolling bassline keeps that almost moody vibe and the keys used throughout keep things interesting and warm. Stellar work from one of the best producers around!

With the likes of Scuba, Tale Of Us, Mind Against and Sasha in full support you can guess the quality you can expect from such a release. AEON is a base for quality and I can’t see that changing any time soon. If you have any sense about you go and take a listen to this delight.
