Saturday, January 16th, 2010


An On Bast of Poland, recently likened to such a name as Stephan Bodzin, and a participant in the Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne releases her second ep on La Folia Recordings.

A release that started with the single original electronic track has blossomed into a well rounded mixed genre, four track EP. Notable producer Douglas Greed volunteered to remix An’s original track, creating a colorful sonic painting filled with found sounds that mingle perfectly with the original melodies. Chris Ward aka C Dubs, recently featured on the ‘Together Festival’ CD, and label head Inanna have taken the ‘it’ genre of the moment, Dubstep, and re-created An‘s audio brilliance adding an original bassline that rattles.

Human Nature: the psychological and social qualities that characterize humankind, esp. in contrast with other living things.

"The mix is an extension beyond simply music and into a deeper realm that plucks and pulls on the thoughts and emotions of the listener. I chose to call this the Human Nature Mix because I feel that the all the selections I have made are reflections of different aspects of the human psyche, emotions, and characteristics that make us who we are. But there's more to it than just that."

An On Bast – Calypso

Thursday, August 13th, 2009


The memories and meaning of An On Bast's four track, minimal techno inspired ep 'Calypso' reside in the little details of sound, where An poetically places her stories. The title track, ‘Calypso Ice-Cream’, is a moment and a memory of the past, inspired by a now retired ice cream flavor. It's sprinkled with sounds that inspire the colored thoughts of being a playful child, on a hot summer day. ‘What Size’ is a darker dream. It haunts, and its tightening grip doesn’t want to let you go. It intro with atmospherics, and a rising tension ensues as sounds layer. The release rounds off with ‘Nuzzle Up’, and ‘Wild-A-Click’, two dance-floor friendly tracks with a quick, quirky pace.

"Brilliant techno. Calypso Ice Cream is up there with something I'd expect Stephan Bodzin to produce. Good stuff."

"Original, fresh, and beautiful sounds."
