Aftertech Records are readying a landmark release from Scottish double act Ariose, as the label celebrates their 20th release. The duo, made up of  Sean Liddle and Harry Parker, present an EP containing two original tracks and two remixes courtesy of Pete Oak and Netherlands artist Noraj Cue.

Cue is all about experimentation. From a young age the producer became obsessed with the expression of feeling through sound. Sounds were created from the rawest of materials, old saucepans and dustbins all had their place. Since then Cue has educated himself in musical history, aiding him in his quest for ever evolving sound.

His remix of Ariose’s ‘Xeno’ is a masterclass in building tension. Euphoric climaxes are prolonged in order to achieve maximum emotional response. Twinkling sounds and star gazing atmospherics make for an immersive journey through an alien solar system.

Look out for Ariose’s forthcoming project dropping on Aftertech Records on January 8th.
