“Monday Off is a vinyl only record label founded by Mary Yuzovskaya. Its ethos is to showcase artists that explore techno’s hypnotic side; specifically where trippy and dark productions go deep yet dynamic. For the eighth release, Mary steps up to the plate, backed with a pair of excellent remixes from Semantica’s Blazej Malinowski and Parabel’s Patrick Siech.
Kicking off the release is ‘Sleeping B’, a deep hypnotic workout, with blooming synths and bass lines moving in tandem with the rolling drum patterns. Blazej Malinowski ups the pace expertly, with his remix keeping key elements of the original, applying a broad brush of subtle hyperactivity to the proceedings.
On the flip, ‘Working B’ sees Mary deliver another heads down affair, the slowly mutating synths and drums finding their own space with clever use of intricate echoes and sonic permutations throughout. Comparatively, the Patrick Siech remix is an energetic take, it’s textures constantly evolving upwards to create a mesmerising atmosphere that perfectly rounds off the release.
