Romanian rising talent Macarie is about to launch a brand new label called “Midas Touch” – an unexplored space where he’ll be able to showcase his musical vision, expressed by both upcoming and already affirmed producer. For the first chapter, he brings into play Iasi based Chrivu, who provides the entitled “Music Brought Me Here” EP, which includes three driving originals plus a remix by fellow-Romanian friend Vlad Arapasu.

A1 kicks the things off with a breakbeat inspired drums and soft-cosmic arpeggiators over distorted vocals and refined textures, while “In Charge” is a more stripped-back tune with a splash of modular sounds, and a raw darkened bassline that waste no time in setting the mood. On the flip, “Linear Space” follows exactly the journey started on A2, adding to a solid and sharp beat some sci+fi effects and haunting analog stabs. Closing the EP is the Vlad Arapasu’s remix who turns “Linear Space” into a punchy club-oriented version, with shimmering atmospheres above his signature Romanian trademark groove.
