Following a solo release on xpq? and collaborative album as NUG with Florian T M Zeisig on 3XL, Canadian producer PVAS steps up on Canadian imprint Isla with 'Somaesthesia'. A 4 track EP that drifts through different dimensions of deep somatic sensations - leftfield house, experimental electronics, deep bass and IDM. A must buy for fans of Huerco S, Ben Body, Exael, Pontiac Streator and Special Guest DJ.

With the flicker of a lighter sparking up, smoke inhaled lungs and long exhales of sustained breath, this EP plummets through, altering mortal sensations at the mercy of the beat.

'Somaesthesia' serves up pleasure on a hot plate with swells of sub-bass and spitting breaks between whispers of desperate voices coming up for air. Preserving the heat with a switch in pace is 'Schlesi Boat', a staggering dub-infused number, dense and hazy, ready to compel the body into a fluid motion.

For hints of soft sensuality, collaborators PS and Florian TM Zeisig add a luscious stack of micro-rhythms and euphoric synths to 'Dream Resumption' and 'Visitation', made for playfully emotive close encounters.

Experimenting with the human self and identity, 'Somaesthesia' converges aggressive breaks, dreamy chords, and the gentle strokes of a slow-burning bass. Resulting in four nocturnal etchings, sensitive to the touch of a true degenerate. The rough and palpating sound of PVAS's sound ignites the flesh of the underground body.
