With its eighth release, Leipzig-based Holger records introduces yet another new artist. Vai has been active in the scene for a few years already, with various production teams and aliases.
His new project is heading for a different path though: “Son of Idaia” is his most intimate work to date, a highly personal record. The elements in use are almost fragile, winding around each other and hard to grasp. So is the music, in between Ambient, Electronica and ghostly Techno it seems removed from its club origins and yet still reverberating these roots. A deep trip down the rabbit hole, dubby, immersive and glowing in all its calm beauty.
