Hot on the heels of her own 'Sunspots' EP, label boss Nadja Lind teams up once again with Helmut Ebritsch under their Klartraum guise, on what is possibly Lucidflow's finest release to date.
'Pain Relief' is an epic 15min trip. Deep and beautiful, it flows effortlessly throughout and showcases Nadja and Helmut's supreme talent for creating the most inspiring of soundscapes.
For such a fantastic original, it was only right to draft in some esteemed remix talent. First up are the Scottish duo and Klartraum fans, Silicone Soul. Having signed a release to their Darkroom Dubs imprint and had them remix an album track, this was always going to be a perfect fit.
Silicone Soul keep the drama of the original, whilst adding a driving kick. Still with an expansive feel, this is sure to find favour with many.
Ocean Gaya spent much of his life skippering ships and sailing the world's oceans. Since that time he has used those influences to create beautiful sun drenched music for labels such as Plastic City. Here he brings new meaning to 'Pain Relief'.
Rounding out the package, and delivering some tough, industrial flavour is UK legend Gez Varley, aka G-Man. The darker touch is a fitting closure to a superb package.
