Tale Of Us & Mind Against – Astral (Original Mix)
There’s a certain occult-like fascination with European techno and house imprint Life & Death. Aside from the spiritual associations of the label’s name, the theme is embodied poignantly in the music as well.
The next release comes from the label’s heavy hitters: Tale of Us and Mind Against. Collaborating on brand new original “Astral,” the foursome have concocted a brooding techno masterpiece. The song succeeds through ephemeral pads and rolling percussion, but ultimately, beyond any specifics sonic characteristics, it’s the entire vibe of the track that takes it to the next level. Simply put, “Astral” is a dark, mystic thrill ride: another memorable gem from the Life & Death camp.
The label described the track by channeling a bit of Cartesian dualism:
Is the doctrine of the mind fully contained within the physical brain? Or are there places that we can traverse, places between places, that exist outside of ourselves and the consensual reality we all seem to inhabit?
