As an island nation, Ireland has been able to develop a truly unique culture.
Allowing events to wash over it, Ireland can participate in the broad sweep of culture and history - all the while preserving its own identity.
Based in Dublin, Gav Elsted has been able to peruse the latest developments in electronic production whilst remaining apart from any scene, genre.
Now using the Adultrock moniker, the Irish artist's production are heavy on droning repetitive, on minimalism attached to blissful exploration.
New EP 'Chants' is the perfect encapsulation of this aesthetic. Due to be given a digital release on April 14th via Bodytonic Music, the title cut is matched by new material and fresh remixes.
Optimo's Jonnie Wilkes pairs up with James Savage to remix 'Chants' under their Naum Gabo alter ego, supplying a deft, almost Industrial re-working.
A highly promising release, you can stream 'Chants' EP in full below.
