Sex Mind – Niflheim | Alfheim [Clubsonica Records]

11 min read

Clubsonica Records opens the new year by welcoming Sex Mind to the label for his debut EP. Hailing from Bolivia, Jorge Burgos aka Sex Mind has been delighting electronic music fans with his colourful progressive sound for the better part of a decade. His penchant for crafting nostalgic melodies has carried him to performances at Colors Fest and Electro Color, two of Bolivia's premiere electronic music events. Choosy in his projects, Sex Mind's resume is short and impactful, with time and care put into each release and carrying much anticipation as a result. Now, presenting their first offering of 2022, Clubsonica welcomes Sex Mind to the label with 'Niflheim | Alfheim', alongside remixes from D-Nox and Gai Barone and Simply City.

Much lauded for his emotive sounds, Sex Mind continues to explore that narrative on 'Niflheim'. Wrapped within a fluid rhythmic shell are muscular beats, pulsating basslines and a myriad of tantalizing effects. The Bolivian's storyboarding takes hold as enchanting vocal elements, trance-inspired melodies and glowing overlays shine through a driving percussive forest and key changing slabs of bass. The main break showcases Sex Mind's propensity for genuine musicality, as evocative harmonies continue to emerge, while shapeshifting effects and timely piano stabs sweep across the stereo field, eventually giving way to a thunderous drop and uplifting finale. The companion piece 'Alfheim' continues the progressive tone set by its predecessor and lands with an equally impressive display of craftsmanship. Possessing an emotive undercurrent, Sex Mind works hypnotizing percussion and ghostly vocals over chugging grooves and percolating arps, creating waves of ultrasonic energy across the first act. Its thrilling pulse builds during a dramatic break, where cinematic pads and ethereal vocals converge, perfectly setting up a fluid drop as siren-like wails and retro synth maneuveres unite for a colourful final act.

Providing the lone interpretation of 'Niflheim' are D-Nox and Gai Barone. Hailing from Germany but now based in Argentina, D-Nox has continued to thrill fans with both cutting edge music and enlightening DJ sets. Whether operating in solo capacity or as one half of D-Nox and Beckers, the German artist lays claim to an impressive resume, highlighted by releases on Bedrock Records, Sudbeat Music and his own Sprout imprint. Meanwhile, Italian producer Gai Barone has achieved similar success across his fourteen-year career. Regarded by fans and contemporaries as a master melodic craftsman, Gai continues to deliver some of the most emotive music that the electronic underground has to offer. A recent partnership with British producer Luke Brancaccio has yielded chart topping releases via Bedrock, Lost and Found, Renaissance and Selador. Having worked together previously on projects for KaterMukke, Parquet and Where The Heart Is, D-Nox and Gai Barone now synthesize their talents once again for Clubsonica with a powerful take on 'Niflheim'. Warm pulsating basslines and rebounding rhythms set the course for snatches of fragmented vocals and acid-like lines to work their magic leading into the break. A gorgeous contrast from the talented duo and one which is explored further across the captivating interlude, as a pitch bending narrative paves the way for a wonky groove-centric drop and fiery percussive finale.

The release concludes with Simply City making his label debut and providing the lone interpretation of 'Alfheim'. Hailing from Chile but now based in Montreal, Cesar Romero aka Simply City has become a fixture in the city's burgeoning nightlife, earning a spot as one of Stereo's resident DJs and in turn sharing the stage with Bedouin, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo and Sasha. Also, a highly respected producer, Cesar has showcased his music via Hope Recordings, Mango Alley, Or Two Strangers and Sudbeat. Now, adding Clubsonica to his resume, Simply City debuts on the label with an inspired rendition of 'Alfheim'. Smooth and rhythmic throughout, the Montreal resident goes deep and groovy for what results in a dramatic nine-minute journey. Percolating synth lines, clever percussive coactions and deconstructed vocals unite across the first act. Void of any primary break, Simply City opts to transfer energy into a celestial second movement, an enthralling shift in mood from the talented veteran, and one which perfectly splits time between otherworldly and emotive. A gorgeous interpretation from Simply City, which rounds out an excellent label debut for Sex Mind, an artist who is set to emerge as 2023 unfolds.
