Another day, another new release from Stefan Schwander aka Harmonious Thelonious.
As one of the most pivotal figures in the Düsseldorf electronic scene his work spans many different guises and numerous musical styles.
Under his Harmonious Thelonious moniker, the German-based producer focuses on rough, dense beats and textures inspired by American minimalist music and African rhythm patterns.
On his new release for Versatile, this heady mixture is evident throughout the project which also has a certain Middle Eastern twist.
Speaking about the EP, the label says “we were introduced to this clutch of tracks by one of the members of Acid Arab and we were totally blown away. Stefan has a very unique production style, fusing all of the above elements with a hint of Gamelan, a dash of tweaked FM synthesis type sounds with a dose of warm ambience and finally his own singular touch on the mix.”
Today we’re treating you to “Abel” the opening track from the EP.
