Swedish artist zlene is up next on his newly formed sub-label Seaweed Rhythm with the 'boop' EP,
which includes remixes from Mihai Popviciu and Silat Bekski.

zlene explores the minimal genre's deeper realms, and this EP is produced in his fishing hutiir studio in the
Swedish archipelago. His work is often deeply connected to nature with underwater samples and animal
sounds. This is especially prevalent within the Q suite track, where seals are sampled under the ice, which
creates natural ice echoes and delays. zlene invites remixes from Romanian artist and Cyclic Records boss
Mihai Popoviciu and Ukrainian wonder Silat Beksi, who has released tons of material on his Modeight
imprint and other key labels.

Title track 'boop' gets the EP started with low-humming bass frequencies, fluttering percussion and an
evolving groove before 'Q Suite' offers up marine soundscapes of seals below the ice fused smoothly with
perfectly swung hats and inviting pads. Up next, Romanian artist Mihai Popoviciu lays down a floaty remix
of 'boop' as the hypnotic vibrations balance gorgeously with the shimmering bass and soothing elements.
Silat Beksi's remix moves the release into moody territories with a stripped-back version of' Q Suite'
featuring minimal sonics, trippy fx, and dreamy tones until 'Betty Boop (n20 version) by zlene's other alias Backsvart rounds off proceedings with fluid modulations, rubbery synths and trippy vocal samples.

Seaweed Rhythm wants to give back to the animals and waters sampled in their work and have seen
firsthand how much of the ocean's wildlife has been affected by climate change. Therefore 50% of all digital
sales will be donated to various water wildlife foundations and projects.
