Running a label with the ambition to push new and unique voices isn’t always an easy task. While finding new artists is about as hard as finding a black t-shirt in Berlin, most budding artists seem pressured to conform or mimic the already established, only to be heard.
Performing under the artist name BLEIE, Oakland resident Sarah Bly is not one of them. Originally hailing from Seattle, she indeed works with the mortar of techno form, but uses different bricks altogether. It’s a hard sound to articulate; at first, it’s almost alienating to ears worn by years in dark clubs. Its mercurial, yet still surprisingly club compatible nature makes it an aural tiger balm – it burns and soothes at once. This compositional depth is perhaps a result of BLEIE’s background as a trained pianist and violinist, by which she transmutes the commonly associated tropes of the genre. BLEIE lets the elements rule over the form, giving the tracks a morphing and unpredictable feel.
Obviously we were instantly intrigued when stumbling across her music, and now extremely proud to present her vinyl debut ‘Certainty Is Only A Feeling’.
Four tracks of unique techno so brimfully suggestive that it’s nearly peerless. We can’t imagine this leaving anyone unaffected.
This is b-o-d-i-e-s release number 4.
