Sabo’s label Sol Selectas has an ethos of releasing music that moves mind body and soul with melodic grooves intertwined between tribal percussion, and this new release is from Spanish artist Mark Alow.

Mark Alow is already a valued member of the Sol Selectas family with his track “White Tusk” being one of the label’s bestselling tracks also charting # 1 on Beatport, and his original tracks on this release are complimented by a remix from Hraach.

Other labels to have also championed the deep atmosphere and haunting beauty of Mark Alow’s music include Little Helpers, Baile Musik, When We Dip XYZ and Solar Distance. He also recently collaborated with Gab Rhome for an EP on Bar 25 Music.

On remix duty, Hraach has previously featured on Sol Selectas working alongside Armen Miran, but this time he returns in a solo capacity to remind us of his exceptional musical skill. One of the most successful artists of his genre he has also featured on the likes of Earthly Delights, Underyourskin and Sudbeat Music.

Opening the release “Temple of Time” is a blissful journey that explores the different timbres of the Skahuhachi flute, and the Kora string instrument. The playful interaction between these two instruments and the steady flow of the percussion has a mesmerising effect that transports the listener to ancient times.

Hraach’s interstellar approach to “Temple of Time” adds blissful pads and spacious ambience to the track. Hauntingly beautiful, the wispy textures build an ethereal atmosphere that complements the original’s percussion, and instead of looking to the past this version has us gazing up at the stars.

Third on the EP is the sensual “Astrophilia” which blends spiritual chanting with wind-instrument flutters and submerged breathing to create a ritualistic dance floor experience, and the irresistible tribal elements keep us on the path through time like a shaman guiding the trip.

Finishing the selection “Yugen” turns up the funk with its simple but effective bassline, swirling pads, and fluttering flute. The jovial breakdown is an oriental soundscape painting pictures of geisha dancing at a traditional party in a Japanese garden.

The artwork by Helia Jamali portraits the passage of time upon the Earth’s magical landscapes, and into a parallel dimension where sunsets surround a sacred geometric temple of time, with an archway leading us into the future.
