Bringing forward-thinking sounds from Canada to an international audience.
Discwoman affiliate Ciel has banded together with Toronto artists Daniel 58 and Yohei S to launch a new label, Parallel Minds.
The imprint is described as “a group of like-minded musicians, DJs, and graphic artists working together to bring compelling, progressive electronic music from Toronto, Canada to the rest of the world.”
Its inaugural release, PM001, collects original tracks from each of its founders, as well as Radiant Aura Faculty, a new alias from Raf Reza.
Side A features two propulsive house cuts from Ciel and Yohei S, backed with a trance-inflected roller from Daniel 58, as well as an “Indian hardcore” track from Radiant Aural Faculty on the B-side.
PM001 follows Ciel’s tropical hued Hundred Flowers EP, one of our favourite dance records in November.
