(A1) The Island of If
(B1) Nothing is Lost
Limited 500 orange/black marbled vinyl
released January 13, 2014
Minilogue are known for their bigger than life electronic music adventures! A fact that makes their announcement „to-have-a-break“ even more painful for us and many of their fans!
Yes, you heard right: Markus Henriksson and Sebastian Mullaert decided to put their collaboration aside for an undefined period and focus more on their solo careers from now on. However they are not waving good-bye without a last mega-sign of their former existence and we are proud and happy to be the label of choice to present this e.p.!
"The Island of If" comes with a slightly reduced playtime that manages to stop the clock at 11 minutes and 49 seconds. The sound and the arrangement follows the vibe of their last Cocoon albums. In other words: Minilogue at its best! "The Island Of It" appears a bit like a scandic winter version of "Knights of The Jaguar" and offers big potential to be one the last hits of 2013 / first hits of 2014.
With the ironic title "Nothing is Lost" Markus Henriksson and Sebastian Mullaert are hammering out a breathtaking epic monster that reminds us of the highly acclaimed remix by The Mole of Minilogues "Hispaniola". Everybody who fell in love for Mole's remix back then will hear pure heaven again with this masterpiece. And despite the epic atmosphere and the impressive length of 14 minutes we are sure "Nothing Is Lost" will also feed the floors of many techno sets.
With "What is there to Protect" (digital only) Minilogue do press every button modern electronic music offers. This is not just music - it's a mad trip! "What is to Protect" is a complete world with soundtrack and audio drama elements. A musical journey that more and more evokes a floor monster the longer it builds up. A 17 minute long synthesis of arts you won't hear anywhere else! Every second of this production should be worth to be heard. And even if the 43 minutes total running long seems to be a bit unusual we feel and think this package is not a single minute too long!
