PHILIPPE LAURENT ‘Mithra’
Catalogue number: PM12
Release date: April 17th
Edition: 500 Grey Vinyl
Peripheral Minimal is proud to announce the forthcoming 12” E.P., ‘Mithra’ by Philippe Laurent. 4-tracks of minimalist synth, that encompasses Kraftwerk style techno beats and electro dance rhythms that stay resolutely original, maintaining a subtlety of sound many contemporaries fail to capture. Complex electronic noises create a density, whilst synthetic almost robotic vocalisations filter into the sound-scape. The 12” will be limited to 500 copies and pressed onto grey vinyl.
