Premiere: Leo af Ekenstam – Stanford Torus


Sinchi return with their fifth instalment in their Altered States series.

From up here the sheer expanse of the universe was laid out bare. Back on earth it was impossible to understand how limitless it truly was; it put everything into perspective. Only days had passed since they’d embarked on the most ambitious move of their lives, for now they remained positive, still absorbing everything around them. It was a spectacle that couldn’t quite be put into words; you had to see it to believe it.


Sinchi continue their mission to platform up-and-coming talent from across the globe with the fifth instalment in their Altered States compilation series. Since launching the initiative the Amsterdam-based label and collective have unearthed producers who they feel have a unique sound that needs to be shared with the world. The club-focused tackle on offer this time comes from the likes of Hamburg duo Freakazzé II, French electro-driven producer Nomenklatür, Mexico’s Oscar Avendaño aka Levantine, our pick from Leo af Ekenstam, and several more.


Altered States 5 is out now. As with all Sinchi releases, profit from sales go to the Sinchi Foundation which supports indigenous peoples worldwide.
