Rays of light break through the thick forestation as a stream gently runs through the undergrowth. As a bird shoots from one branch to the next, the forest feels empty and deserted. It feels almost perfectly tranquil. But there is a sound in the distance disturbing that tranquillity.  A faint thump pounding in a rhythmic fashion.

Premiere: Abstraxion – Spazieren (Original Mix)

Taken from his forthcoming “She Thought She Would Last Forever” LP, Abstraxion returns to his own Biologic imprint with ‘Spazieren’.
