Anthony Middleton & Gel Abril – All In The Mind by Gel Abril published on 2013/08/07 20:38:08 +0000 Label: Maison D’Etre // https://www.facebook.com/MaisonDEtreOfficial Release Date: 19 August 2013 Distribution: Beatport and Juno // Cat no: MDE007 Maison D’etre’s moody masters have been at it again. Long-time friends, Gel Abril and Anthony Middleton have combined forces to produce more than a collaborative EP. ‘All in the Mind’ is a dexterous fusion melding what could be considered contrasting styles into balanced compliment. ‘All in the Mind’ is murky, provocative, groovy- all that is that is Maison D. Contrast and compliment, space and balance, much like a friendship this two-track EP shows off the strength of dynamic collaboration, honouring differences and never conformity. ‘All in the Mind,’ showcases both producers’ unique craft; fusing Gel Abril’s signature techno sound with Anthony Middleton’s melodic and spacious arrangements. Thought provoking vocals stretched out across a landscape of rhythmic pads. A tribal space voyage, both stirring and calming, complex yet simple- experiential and unreal all in perfect contradiction. Dark and hypnotic with a techno pad breakdown this beat-rider evokes imagination…It is, after all, ‘All in the Mind’. ‘Hey You’ is a classic track reinvented with some contemporary techno flare. Classic vocals, airy and distant, are laid over super modern tech and synth sounds in a digital Ping-Pong style. This track is all about rhythmic drive with old-school baseline, a combination that is bound to keep the feet dancing well past 4am.
