Magical Mistakes

I first wrote about Magical Mistakes, aka producer Erik Luebs, two and a half years ago. Still based in Japan, he’s since delved further into the Osaka electronic music scene, launching his own label and club promotion company, Perfect Touch. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got time to make his own music still. This week he releases new EP ‘Decompose / Reassemble’.

Mixed as one continuous 25 minute experience, with these six instrumental tracks Luebs has created the kind of music that fades everything else around to you black. “As a conceptual work, the sounds explore macro-concepts of humanity’s decline amidst the stoic beauty of cyclical natural processes”, he explains. And who am I to argue?

Listen to the EP in its entirety via Bandcamp, and check out the video for ‘Hollow Bodies’ here:
