DescriptionWe keep up the international vibe on Balans Records by introducing Irish dubtechno wizard The Parallel to our growing roster. Colin McKeown a.k.a. The Parallel has build up quite a name for himself the past 2 years with deep, dubbed and spaced out techno releases on prolific Imprints such as Komisch, Nice & Nasty and Science. This 3 track EP showcases Colins talent in all its glory. Love for pure Detroit techno and Berlin inspired dub has merged into a sound completely his own and with a broad soundscope. From brutal and fierce dubtechno (Symmetrica) with its a piercing stabs to beautiful downtempo melancholy (Odyssey) and everything thats acidic in between (Universal).Timeless music from The Emerald Isle.
