Olaf Stuut returns to Atomnation December 16 with a stunning new EP, titled ‘ET’. This four-tracker is the follow up of the closing track ‘Extended Travels’, one of the highlights of his album ‘Run’ released earlier this year.
"Since Run came out I wanted to focus a little bit more on club tracks because of all the beautiful gigs I've had since the release, searching for more joy and fun to accompany the events I play. Every track has more of a story on it's own instead of an overriding arch covering a whole LP. I started this EP with a follow up on the closing track of my album, Extended Travels, which is almost unrecognisable a part from the melodies. All tracks are based on jams I did during the tour."
The prolific Amsterdam based producer manages to combine the more abstract sides of electronic music with a well-tuned club orientated character. ‘ET’ houses solid beats on ‘Evolve Tutor’ and ‘Era Terminal’, astonishing piano play on ‘Extended Travels (ExcursionTwo)’ and a more minimalistic approach on ‘Error Texture’.
Already remixing artists like The Acid, Max Cooper and Tonik Ensemble, this new EP is set to be another pin on Stuut’s shoulder. Amsterdam, Berlin, Istanbul, Paris, Barcelona and London already had the joy to catch one of his live and DJ-sets. There’s no telling where ‘ET’ will bring him next.
Picked up Guentner's latest album Empire on ASIP and then realized "why the hell didn't I buy Theia!" Luckily there was still a physical copy available. Absolutely amazing work here. Excited to get it on the stereo. Brenden LaBonte
After repeated listens, to me it feels like the sounds he used on his previous albums have been slowed waaaaay down and explored on an almost atomic level. I freaking love it. I can't NOT listen to it. It's the music within the spheres. Taylor Harrison
