Spanning two discs in two separate parts, Romanian taste-making label Amphia’s 14th release comes from label co-head and SIT member Vlad Caia. Titled “Division I” and “Division II”, part one was a huge hit when it was released late last year and the A-side was straight out of the blocks with the title track “Division” the rest of part one followed suit in suitably hypnotic style.
With the 2-part album basing the musical and visual direction around symmetry, the hypnotic grooves and percussive elements created by Vlad seem to effortlessly revolve around each other in such a way that few artists can. Referencing the recent Amorf recent release, Dimension I and II and most of Amphia’s output is and will be a release that will be poured over time and time again.
This impressive body of work from Caia will cement both himself and Amphia’s already well-established reputation as a uniquely positioned creative source that straddles both the musical and dancefloor focused ends of the minimal sphere. Considering Vlad’s intense touring schedule this calibre of studio output only goes to underline how talented this artist really is.
Division II will be available on Amphia Romania in all good vinyl stockists late January ’19.
