  • Description Berlin's Dave Vega follows up his recent hit for Exone with a debut EP on Thoughtless. 'Altars of Magic' is a classic late night embodiment of deep tech-house, updating the past for the benefit of the future. Jaunty yet persistent bass is augmented with swung analog percussion, rich organs and haunting textures, all woven together with a masterful arrangement designed for maximum persuasion. Toronto artist Basic Soul Unit found time in his busy schedule producing for the likes of Mule, Ostgut Ton and New Kanada to turn in not one but two remixes of the title track, both veering towards claustrophobic yet intoxicating acid house - with the digital bonus mix turning up the paranoia for a slightly more twisted techno take. Finally, 'In A Chord With Something' lives up to its name, harmonizing impeccably filtered analog stabs with an irresistible low end, employing an inventive compositional approach that merges wistful pads with synthesized vocal stabs to build tension before returning to the spacious yet metaphysically complete groove that drives it forward. As the second vinyl release on Thoughtless, we're proud to welcome one of Germany's freshest talents to our growing roster...
