Dixon & Âme’s label has just received a dose of playful sounds from leading German producer
Embarking on a captivating excursion of left-field electronica, trip-hop and down-tempo sound palettes, Versions sees the Applied Magic label boss revisit and reimagine some of the most notable records from his extensive catalog, while delivering an impressive opus of releases that explores the more experimental side of his diverse sonic repertoire.
“Versions”, the extraordinary first installment of a new mixing concept from Berlin-based label Innervisions, is released today, September 16, courtesy of German DJ and producer Aera.
Bright future at Innervisions
Giving us a different view of his keen craft as a multi-faceted producer, the in-demand German draws references from a plethora of realms beyond what many perceive as his immediate musical home.
Returning to Innervisions after an emphatic contribution to Secret Weapons Part 14 with “Acid” in June, “Versions” illuminates Aera’s innate passion for genre cross-pollination as it marks the beginning of a new mix series format on Dixon & Âme‘s esteemed Berlin-based label.
Recently, Aera released ‘Acid’ on Innervisions, a track that caused quite a sensation and helped propel her to the next level of her career. With a steady touring schedule and new releases for Afterlife and the Fabric London label on the horizon, the future looks bright for the producer.
Speaking about the album, Aera commented:
“For a long time, I wanted to revisit some of my older tracks and put them in a whole new context, outside of the world of dancefloor bangers and the hunt for the next big ID track. Don’t get me wrong: I love this world, but I always knew there could be more to it than this. With this record, I wanted to reference the heroes of my youth: the golden age of Ninja Tune, DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing, Massive Attack, K&D Sessions, etc.”
