AIDON – Beholder EP
Proudly presenting 2 ‘firsts’ for 2021 … Our first release of the year, but more importantly – the first release from up and coming producer AIDON, making his grand debut on SMAAK!
‘Beholder’ is an emotional ride of searing synths, tight percussion, and an unforgettable vocal, whilst the B side – ‘Umsuka’ – gets a little more nasty and rolling in the low end with just the right amount of ravey in places. With a fresh take on Afro-Tech, it also incorporates some tribal rhythms, and a haunting African vocal destined to take your mind places.
Overall the production style is detailed, spacious, and very mature for such a new talent … AIDON is on SMAAK’s radar as someone to pay close attention to!
Deeper beats and soundscapes marked by cosmic energy and a desire to unite people on the dancefloor. AIDON is a South African-born, London-based Techno DJ/producer with a penchant for otherworldly sounds.
