Gathaspar - Vaporizer EP (Incl. Lowtec, Tobias and Alessio Mereu Remixes) -

Early December will see the Amam imprint release Gathaspar’s ‘Vaporizer’ EP, backed with remixes from Lowtec, Tobias., and label-founder Alessio Mereu.

Rising Polish producer Gathaspar has been carving out quite the career over the past few years with material surfacing on reputable imprints such as Thema, Resopal Schallware and Freude Am Tamzen, as well as touring his live set in clubbing hot spots such as Berlin’s Watergate, and Panorama Bar. Here we see Gathaspar push on with some fresh material via the Amam label, following recent output from the likes of LoSoul, John Tejada and Martinez.

Opening up the release is title cut ‘Vaporizer’, seeing Gathaspar offer up his intricately detailed signature sound with murky low-end tones, bubbling atmospherics and a whirlpool of evolving percussion. The second original from Gathaspar follows, entitled ‘Ocelot 29’ which takes things in a more overt, electronic direction, laid out over six and a half minutes with atypical, unfolding rhythms, meandering chord progression and hypnotic vocal lines.

Then first up to open the remixes on the package is Workshop’s Lowtec who provides an interpretation of ‘Ocelot29’, and as expected from such a striking artist, the reshape is typically gritty, laden with mind- bending melodies and complex production techniques. Following is a remix of ‘Vaporizer’ from Ostgut Ton’s Tobias. who treats us to a rugged, dropped-tempo take fuelled by haunting atmospherics textures, insistent drum lines and warbling sub-bass tones. Label-head Alessio Mereu then rounds things off with his ‘Blue Interpretation’ of ‘Vaporizer’, pulling back the original number to a reduced state with bumpy rhythms and glitching synth licks to round off the EP brilliantly.

Gathaspar’s ‘Vaporizer’ EP is out on Amam 1st December 2014.
