Japanese indie beats label Disktopia is following up their recent compilation release with an EP from one of the label’s head honchos. Mau’lin, based out of London, is serving up a special six-track release for fans of the label’s indie sound. Everything coming out of Japan’s electronic scene has been utterly jaw-dropping–from our friends over at Tokyo Bliss to the nasty dubstep sounds of Ajapai, the land of the rising sun is quickly setting the bar for new and exciting sounds in 2012. So, it comes as no surprise that Mau’lin’s EP is nothing short of spectacular.
The best part about the release? You can snag a free remix off the EP over at XLR8R. Like the artwork implies, Am Rhein’s take on Function Open is one for the stars. Extremely minimal basslines and a floating synth give it a very unique personality, and at about three-fifths of the way through, an avant-garde melody kicks in with alien qualities. You’ll definitely want to download this one. For Mau’lin’s past work, check out the other two tracks tied to this post. They have a more down-to-earth appeal, with Pelvin displaying unique scratching qualities as an homage to the country’s hip hop culture. Domo, Mau’lin.
