Premiere: AJO – Zazen (II)


An EP inspired by childhood trips to India on Lithuanian imprint Electric Shapes.

The coastline stretched far into the distance, the shimmering waters crashing softly into the golden sands. They’d been driving for hours, taking in the sights and sounds, from bustling towns to empty beaches. Markets and bazaars lined the roads each filled with vibrant colours and smells that could coerce any driver off the road and into the throes. It was a feast for the senses and an experience that would stick in their memories for years to come.


Purveyors of all things hypnotic, Lithuanian imprint Electric Shapes return for another batch of trance-inspired sounds. Following releases from Kolomensky, Martin Kuška and Far East Flight, they draft in AJO aka Steppin’ Wolf, who takes inspiration for his EP ‘Maeng Da’ from childhood trips with his father in India. Across the three acid-drenched cuts, bolstered by remixes from Tadan, Kolomensky and Tassilo Vanhöfen, AJO invites us to join him on a journey through the bazaars of Goa and on the path to a higher state of zen.


Maeng Da will be released on 3rd December.
