AEON, the ever evolving imprint from Alex Niggemann, continues to push musical boundaries with its second release of 2019 from the Belgium-born, Berlin-based Joris Biesmans.

Nie Te Doen has an element of inquisitivity to it. A bumpy Indie Dance number with a broken beat. It builds steadily as the energy within it rises. Biemans explains that the track was born “after playing some open air festivals in the summertime. For me this track has a very specific and positive energy”. The aptly named lead track A Long Road with its upbeat bounce, melodic synths and mesmerising breakdown, first came to be fourteen years ago. Mushroom Cloud takes the EP down a darker path. It’s grittier than the preceding tracks. Building with fire into a forceful beat, it charges ahead. Of the track Joris says “it’s a bit less happy. Throughout the track you have the feeling you that you have walked through a dark place”. The EP closes with Piramides. It’s dreamy with an air of euphoria, ambient with a glimmer of hope – the calm after the storm. “The name ‘Piramides’ is derived from the fact that the core idea is built around pyramid shaped arpeggios.”

Joris Biesmans’ skills as a producer and DJ have seen him showcase his sounds worldwide, taking in Thailand, Tokyo, Glasgow and Lisbon amongst others. Biesmans’ love for analogue saw him set up his own label, TVe Recordings in 2016 with the aim to provide “an escape from the overload of digital culture”. The label has seen him work with notable names including Man Power, Aera and Lord Of The Isles. In 2017 he signed to John Digweed’s hugely influential Bedrock imprint and 2018’s vinyl-only release on Rhythm Cult shot to the number one spot in the German Techno charts. In 2019, Biesmans shows no signs of slowing down. He recently released on Jennifer Cardini’s highly regarded Correspondant label with another release imminent as well as providing music for Rebirth, Future Disco and 17 Steps.
