Estroe & Nadia Struiwigh have been friends for a long time now, and both artists have had releases on Rosedale. They finally took some time recently to jam in the studio and make music together.
The session together produced good foundations for both tracks. The pair used Nadia's hardware and Estroe provided the input for strings and atmospheres. After the jam, both went back to their own studios and gave the tracks an additional personal stamp from each.
The result is these two tracks which express a mutual taste as well as incorporating their personal styles.
On remix duties are Yagya, from Iceland and Swiss duo, SINNER DC.
Yagya's albums and music have been played many times by both Estroe and Nadia. His Icelandic dubby sounds have enchanted them greatly, and so they were only too thrilled that he agreed to remix for this release.
SINNER DC have built a solid yet discreet reputation over the years within the international electronic music scene. Their ethereal and intergalactic yet, catchy melodies, combined with full on emotion and melancholy has gradually become the duo's trademark sound.

Icelandic producer Yagya (Aðalsteinn Guðmundsson) has been creating atmospheres through melody and sounds for more than a decade. A definitive member of the Thule Musik collective, Yagya also is known for his work as half of Sanasol and also the famed Plastic.
"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known. "
The enigmatic SINNER DC prefer to let their music speak for them and sometimes that's all one needs.

Aerations by Estroe and Nadia once more shows the pair's ability to paint vivid pictures with sound. The track initially builds and evolves with layers of repetitive and steady synth percussion like frogs calling in the night before a rain shower. Moist atmospheres and mournful pads join the chorus of sounds like drifting banks of fog while soft bell droplets fall gently on to the melody.

Yagya's remix of Aerations is a shimmering and hazy interpretation of the original mix. Soft dubby chords ebb and flow as they dance through the track. Sparse percussion and occasional stabs brings a closeness to the listener like nearby movements obscured by shadows while soft ethereal pads float over the mix like thin moonlit drizzle.

Estroe and Nadia's original mix of Resinated starts like the idling of some other-worldly engine with its intro of a quickly pulsating synth and breathy atmospheres. As the track develops in complexity, piston like hisses, hand clap gear crunches and a slightly nervous second synth pattern engage eagerly like the additional components of the machine. This sonic vehicle takes us on a leisurely journey across an alien landscape where choral pads, like high cirrus wisps, hang above the land.

SINNER DC's remix of Resinated has an evocative feel to it. A vast sounding and haunting array of atmospheric pads wash over the track while a deep horn like bass synth warbles in and out of the distance. Subdued ambiguous synth sounds gnaw away unnervingly underneath. Altogether it paints a picture of some old memory ' like a ghost of a once great, but ancient city.
