    PRESSTEXT:
    Balaban steps up in the game with his debut 6 track release on viennese label sama recordings. Sebastian is already producing music since 15 years and in the last 2 years he extended his analogue equipment bit by bit to further develop his vision of electronic music. His sound is characterized by the use of a special russian distortion pedal and distinct tape saturation, all backed by a muscular rhythmic chassis.

    In his german hometown of Kassel Balaban and his Cereals crew already hosted well-received party nights with some of the game’s most respected artists: Florian Kupfer, Elena Colombi and Luca Lozano.

Balaban steps up in the game with his debut 6 track release on viennese label sama recordings. Sebastian is already producing music since 15 years and in the last 2 years he extended his analogue equipment bit by bit to further develop his vision of electronic music. His sound is characterized by the use of a special russian distortion pedal and distinct tape saturation, all backed by a muscular rhythmic chassis.

In his german hometown of Kassel Balaban and his Cereals crew already hosted well-received party nights with some of the game’s most respected artists: Florian Kupfer, Elena Colombi and Luca Lozano.

One day his daughter was constructing a fence of building blocks around a little bug, so she gave the name for the first track, which sees the bespoken bug riding a distinctive synth melody out of prison.

Leading with a distorted, rumbling bass line and a heavy drum work out, the track „Don't Give Me That Deep Freeze“ immediately invokes the picture of trembling bodies on the dancefloor.

„Red Rock“ is heavily influenced by an italian composer, whose film scores are kinda famous. With relentlessly driving drum arrangements and subtle harmonies this track releases some suppressed tension in a beautiful manner.

“Skinny Lover” is a perfectly orchestrated piece of musical cure, not only for broken hearted night creatures. With its constantly evolving melodic outbursts it pushes you to new heights and clears your soul.

With its meditative arrangement “Tiny Point Of Light In The Center Of My Forehead” expands into a mellow cosmos of deep relaxation and mindfulness and therefore helps accepting one's feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations.

For the last track “Untitled One” Balaban has recorded kettle drums and different gongs to give it a special organic feeling.
