Elias Erium – Sleepwalking [Phenomena]

6 min read

Opening the summer season in style, Phenomena welcomes Elias Erium back to the label for a new EP. With the March release of 'Harvester', the Canadian artist returned in resounding fashion. Picking up on the themes and sounds which established the label, the two-track showcase was a prime example of the Montreal resident's creative attitude, winning over tastemaker duo Mind Against and ultimately setting the course for the May release of 'The Grove'. With projects for long-standing ethereal imprint Steyoyoke and Eleatics subsidiary Aletheia Recordings already in the books for 2022, Elias now returns to his comfortable home of 'Phenomena' with a two-track showcase entitled 'Sleepwalking'.

Beginning the title selection, Elias explores haunted minimalism and disparate motifs over militant beats and machine gun rhythms. A commanding dance floor presence is furthered by alien-like bleeps and panoramic arps, while percussive rides and flurries of effects transfer energy into the main break. Building tension across the near two-minute centrepiece, a dystopian style ecstasy is evoked, as emerging modulation and esoteric chord changes collapse under their own gravity, giving way to horn-like drones for a prophetic finale.

The companion piece 'Taking You Back' rounds out the release with a confident club energy. Elias' penchant for dance floor dynamics is revealed through dark rebounding rhythms, phasing noise and quirky electronics, all cleverly programmed over a funked up, hip swinging groove. Snatches of ghostly vocals highlight the main break, bringing icy refrains and elastic-like arps along for the ride, eventually revealing a colourful vortex and commanding groove-centric conclusion. With the 'Sleepwalking' EP Elias carefully balances a timeless techno inspired mentality with futuristic technical vision, resulting in a two-track showcase that arrives just in time for the summer festival season.
