Bleak is back. With wide reverb and pads that'll make your mind melt. The 23 year old, Bleak Amethyst, straight out of Germany, brings distant and trippy sounds to his productions. Brain melting sound-waves are his specialty. Being inspired by Vortex Rikers, SALEM, Sudanim, Boards of Canada, Burial, Balam Acab, and Holy Other, Bleak does his best to incorporate the wide sounds of another planet. The soon to be king of Dark and Ambient Electronic music.
"Theseus“ is about heroism. About love and fighting a beast. About being lost and running against time.
Theseus has to kill the Minotaurus, son of king Midos, half human, half bull. But is it really a monster Theseus has to fight? Or is it a inner beast he needs to conquer?
Ariadne tries to help Theseus, she’s trying to show him the way out with her thread. Is it an actual thread or her love, trying to lead him?
Theseus walks into the labyrinth, certain of confess. The light from the outside fades, the deeper Theseus gets into the maze. Can he actually do it?
Finally the Minotaurus appears. Is it really Theseus hunting the monster? Who said, Theseus himself isn't the monster? Doubts.
The deed is done. It’s time to leave the labyrinth. Where is the thread? Did it fade away? Did Ariadnes love fade? Where is the light? Is the Minotaurus really dead? Is escaping from the labyrinth the real examination?
