Andi Toma - Damn Luei Lit [Infinite Greyscale 013]

After a longer period of silence and their latest release put out back in 2017 we see the Berlin-based art label Infinite Greyscale making a comeback in 2019 with its 013, the first ever solo release by Mouse On Mars' Andi Toma under his real name. Co-produced by Thomas Knoefel and released on a limited to 300 copies white, one-sided 10" vinyl with a beautiful silk-screen print on the flip we see Andi Toma explore deep, electro-organic territories with his tune "Damn Luei Lit". Obviously incorporating elements of Tribal / Future Tribal-informed polyrhythms alongside scattered echoes of horns and other real life instruments paired up with detailed electronic textures and various layers of intensity this one is as musically unique as somehow familiar vibewise, especially for those who've been following artists like DJ Marcelle / Another Nice Mess recently or have been schooled by Harald "Sack" Ziegler & Frank "Schültge" Blumm in the late 90s as well as - who guessed ? - Mouse On Mars in the groups early years. Sweet stuff and we'd wish to see more labels giving artists a platform to fully experiment and explore musical structures and ideas beyond any given norm, genre or definition these days.
