For several days, we were writing a long text for this set about how important it is to ask yourself a lot of questions and find answers for them. Then @jonathankaspar sent us his three-hour mix, and all our questions and answers faded away. We truly want all of you to feel the mental connection we feel every time our artists send us the sets and we listen to them for the first time.

Words from Stevie: Was a great pleasure and honour to be asked by the guys from flow-music to create a 333 mix , I am so impressed with the artists and mixes so far an the fan base they have quickly created , so a bit about the mix , it been sculptured from old and new tracks I have looked at over the lockdown in Melbourne . It starts with a more downtempo feel as it trips along following my mood as i was putting it together , it moves to an increased tempo with some remixes on the fly in there , something from a friend not released , an some old favs with a twist !! Hope you enjoy it and thanks again FLOW MUISC ! – Stevie xx love is love ♾
Colombian musician Ela Minus announces her debut album, acts of rebellion, out October 23rd on Domino. Performed, produced and recorded entirely by herself, acts of rebellion is a complex manifesto on simplicity, a call to fight, to live, to be present. It’s a collection about the personal as political and embracing the beauty of tiny acts of revolution in our everyday lives.
Having worked extensively as a “synthesizer assembler”, Ela Minus has a vast breadth of knowledge associated with these electronic devices; which is why the album has been solely created using synthesizers she has designed and built herself. Recorded at her home studio, Minus’ appreciation for a variety of diverse genres allows her to put a unique spin on the exhausted electronic genre to create 10 distinct pathways on acts of rebellion.
Minus hints at a luxurious melody with just a handful of elements and bottles the feeling of a wild night out. Even when it goes hard, there’s a certain dreaminess to acts of rebellion, and the mix of softness and edges in Minus‘ music makes it all the more fascinating. On the fragile character sketch “dominique,” confessions like “last night I went to bed at seven a.m.” give the impression of glowing brightly in a darkened room, while Helado Negro’s Roberto Carlos Lange adds extra coziness to the unguarded sweetness of “close.” The album’s instrumentals are just as vital to its message as the ones with vocals; the radiant warmth of “let them have the internet” conveys the idea that real life is much better than any virtual experience wordlessly and perfectly. On every track, Minus gives listeners a clear sense of her worldview and balances all the elements of her music with an organic sophistication remarkable for a debut album. As she puts it at one point on the album, “We always know in the first minute or so if something’s worth staying for.” In that amount of time, she proves that she’s a force to be reckoned with, and acts of rebellion is just the start.
