Mysticisms continues its global search for amazing music, hitting gold again with an EP of four previously unreleased house meets IDM with a dreamy edges by Romania’s HAN aka Dan Handrabur, culled from early studio recordings between 1991-95. After getting into record store culture he began building a studio and eventually gave up studying in favour of production, relocated to Vancouver, Canada, where his debut release (as X Drone with Adham Shaikh in 1993) began to establish Handrabur’s role as an integral part its electronic scene. Appearances with Harthouse, Exist Dance, Eye Q Records and many more followed, plus collaborations with the legendary Phil Western. The four tracks here haven’t aged at all, with nimble beats, action-packed arrangements and dreamy atmospheres, ‘Give In & Resist’ coming on like Rising High-era Mixmaster Morris crossed with the playfulness of Air Liquide, and ‘Phantasme’ revelling in the same cross-rhythmic fun that informed The Black Dog’s classics.
