Premiere: 4 – Parsec – Shadow Fax (Ali Demir Remix) [HR043]

Habits Records artwork - Ali Demir / Parsec

The digital discography of Habits Records continues to grow. We take a look back at this year’s July release, coming from UK artist Parsec complete with a remix from Ali Demir.

As a platform Habits Records keeps all corners covered, serving up sounds through the sphere of online as well grooves in the wax. The Bandcamp back catalogue is growing at an impressive rate and it’s showing no signs of stopping.

Parsec himself is also gaining ground. Productions are coming in thick and fast. In the lead up to his Habits contribution, he has already released on Seven Diles London, Push, Inter Records and Syntaxx.

Ali Demir brings up the remix. The Icelandic artist recently featured on our pages, as we premiered Dani Labb’s ‘Atemporal’ from his own label Distrakt Audio. Demir continues to serve up sounds on other platforms and this is his contribution for Habits.

On the premiere we have Demir’s remix of ‘Shadow Fax’. The minimalistic chugger comes with a jabbing groove, short stabs of bassline that carry a bopping beat. Its steady rhythm gives the backbone to a neat Romanian flavour. No surprise then that early support comes in from the likes of Mihai Pol, Arapu, Vlad Arapasu and Cosmjn.

A playful session makes up the mid layer, tweaking moments of analogue, delving deep into depths of the machines. A constant stream of squelchy, splattering behind is dipped in and out by rolling melodies and soft chords. Nonchalant in nature with a kick that makes room for the floor.
