The second Black Sun Productions re-release that was put on the circuit via Hallow Ground in early May is their EP "Dies Juvenalis" which originally came out on Anarcocks back in 2007. Consisting of three tracks and rolled out over a total of approx. 23 minutes this one starts with "Percettive Riflessioni", a more inward-looking, yet uneasy piece of Electronica comprised of thick layers of distortion, repetetive glitches, fractured non-vocalisms and a general late 90s / early 2000s feel that evokes many fond memories of an era in which creativity and a well leftfield approach ruled this scene. With the title track "Dies Juvenalis" the duo goes into musical terrains which are surely influenced by Classical music whilst bringing in bits of Ambient / IDM as well as ethnic vibes, possibly of Peruvian or Chilean origin, whilst the closing tune "Veneration XXX" caters a tripping, dreamlike Ambient / Electronica vibe for psychedelic out of body experiences and journeys to places beyond consciousness.
