Aleph is youngster Ivan Erofeev, born in Siberia, living in St Petersburg and Omsk and classically trained on the violin. He perfectly blends in with the Russian invasion with Pixelord, Mujuice as well as the contemporary beats & bass generation.
People writing about his music use phrases like ‘Aleph makes unusual, ornately detailed, dense and chaotic, yet highly organized beats’ and ‘Adroit and complex, his music is imbued with a restless rhythmic spirit and melancholic soul, evidenced in the skittering junglist patterns and noir-ish cosmic synth arrangement, or the pressure-split HipHop beats’
It’s music in between styles like so many of the Lowriders Recordings releases. It’s soul influenced electronics soaked in skewed rhythm pattern from a parallel universe.
Aleph’s new release on Lowriders Recordings is called Fourteen Dreams Per Night and refers to a working title of one of the tracks. The EP reads like a full circle in a sleep hypnogram with stages of REM and brief awakenings but all in another state of mind.
