Russian producer Asten has earned praise recently for his highly original and versatile productions, which have ranged from minimal-tech to progressive and deep house. Silk Textures proudly presents a three-track EP, all of which are on the deeper side. Kicking off the release is Abuqua, a gorgeous atmospheric tune. From early on in the track, the listener is treated to a floating-on-air soundcape; the tune becomes more rhythmically intricate and melodically layered as it progresses, leading into the stunning break. At this juncture, the beat drops out and the lead bell-synths take on a more "aquatic" quality, perhaps a hint to the meaning of the mysterious title. The second track in the EP, "Labyrinth," which evokes a truly "lost" world, perhaps not earthbound. A variety of atmospheric effects and synth stabs establish the delicate, outer-worldly mood. Finally, the EP closes with "Sky Waves," a more upbeat track; it features flanging pads and a funky, 80's groove. In the main break, the ethereal, sonic 'waves' make their grand debut to awe-inspiring effect.
