Dark Matters is proud to announce it's fourth release, Chromatic Dreams, courtesy of label boss Amirali. With his avant-garde concoction of electronica, techno and house, the EP is constructed of two original tracks and one remix; courtesy of Midnight Operator, the duo made up of Mathew Jonson and his brother, Nathan. This is Amirali’s first sonic exercise on the label since the debut release, Fearful Stay.

The first track on the compilation “Chromatic Dreams” is skilfully executed, keeping the dark and psychedelic vibe that Dark Matters is becoming known for. It has dreamy vocals that echo with 80’s synth and a drum pattern that is reminiscent of techno. The breakdown creates a whirlpool of different associations, the depth of the bass and stutter of the overlaying synths is a mesmerising mixture.

“Maladaptive Lover” is built on synth melodies that give the track a spacey vibe. David Bowie played a big part in Amirali’s creative inspiration, this track is an eccentric ode to the space man, a modern and dark underground pop interpretation of Bowie’s influences, the eccentric, the dreamy and the avant-garde.

Midnight Operator’s remix of “Maladaptive Lover” reinvents the track, the most dance-floor ready cut of the EP. The dreamy energy, although maintained in the synth patterns is now much more intense. The melody drives forward and doesn't linger in self contemplation as Amirali’s original tracks do. The vocals soar through the machine bleeps and faltering high end, tumbling into a crescendo.

The Dark Matters imprint is a cohesive experience where the weird and unusual is encouraged, aiming to push people to the edge of their comfort zones and keep them there. Aiming to stand out, this EP fits perfectly into the evolving compilation of releases from Dark Matters.

Track Name: Chromatic Dreams (Original Mix)
Do you know
How I've been living
With pain and grief
Far from the sea
Lets go back
Into the night
Far away

Where we fly
Over the moonless sky
In Chromatic Dreams
dead or alive
Track Name: Maladaptive Lover (Original Mix)
Maladaptive Lover where have you been
The most beautiful eyes I've ever seen
The sound of sirens pierce the wall
Manipulative girl just let me be

Maladaptive Lover where have you been
Do you recognise me in your dreams
I run away from you and my dreams
Stop along the edge of the sea
