After finishing a bachelor degree in production and
performance in 2018 Stelios Antoniou aka Krimson Vial
needed a platform to release his more experimental and
rhythmical productions.

This leads us to 2019's upcoming E.P. called 'Pockets'. His
background in drumming and clubbing gives his music a
sense of urgency, always searching for the next 'pocket',
teasing oriental hooks in between breaky, abstract beats.

The E.P. starts with 'atlast', an exercise in breathing
techniques, constantly anticipating the next wave of
expanding synths, 'atlast' leads us into the moody and
atmospheric 'shadowe.' A tight groove propulses
movement whilst gritty synths and a gangster bassline
make for a real work out. 'Racetone' begins with a lighter
groove, spacious melodies and a disorientating bass
wobble giving the track a trancey, hypnotic 5am feel.
'Experis' begins with more rhythmic urgency, arpeggios
and fluoro shords creating a cinematic yet emotional
journey. Japanese titled 'Kioto' leads us down a deep and
dark alley before introducing strokes of royal flutes only to
evolve, later on, with layered ethereal pads turning the
track into a genre and structure defying track.

The E.P. closes with 'Swifting'. Deep bass kicks plunging on
the pressure before the track switches, into further breaky
rhythmic mayhem with huge washes of orchestral synths
eventually increasing anticipation for Krimson Vial's next
swift release.
