Swedish imprint Seaweed Rhythm delivers their second release featuring five intricate house tracks from Kalkyl & label boss zlene which includes remixes from Traumer, Giuliano Lomonte and dot13.

zlene is a new project of producer Bäcksvart whilst Kalkyl is the new minimal alias of dPop. Kalkyl & zlene together run the Stockholm musical hotspot and renowned night club NEU, situated in the basement of Berns Hotel, Sweden’s oldest entertainment establishment. Due to the club’s temporary closure because of the pandemic, the pair have spent plenty of time together in their studio in old town experimenting with Kalkyl’s machines or zlene’s vast field recordings and oceanic samples which is a constant feature in his work. ‘Ajrishwishkey’ EP sees them invite remixes from the unstoppable Frenchman and Gettraum founder Traumer, Italian artist and Ultrasketch and Pressure Traxx affiliate Giuliano Lomonte.

‘Wire Ant’ kicks off the EP with stripped-back, breaky rhythms fused with hypnotic synth waves and pulsating frequencies before ‘Ajrishwishkey’ reveals a reverberating bassline, oscillating grooves, sparkling tones and rubbery fx which draws you in effortlessly. ‘Eastwood’ follows with hooky percussion, drifting pads, glistening modulations with a hypnotic swing.

Giuliano Lomonte’s remix of ‘Wire Ant’ is a loopy roller with quivering bass murmurs, shuffling drums and enticing melodies that shine throughout until Traumer rounds off proceedings with his trademark organic drums layered with spaced-out minimalism and hazy soundscapes. Closing out the release is dot13 from Austria who delivers a hypnotic remix of ‘Eastwood’ which layers raw textures and deep, low-frequency shimmers.

Seaweed Rhythm wants to give back to the animals and waters sampled in their work and have seen first-hand how much of the ocean’s wildlife has been affected by climate change. Therefore 50% of all digital sales will be donated to various water wildlife foundations and projects. 

Kalkyl & zlene ‘Ajrishwishkey’ EP drops on Seaweed Rhythm on 18th March 2021.
