After putting out three excellent mixtapes (from Andrew Lyster, Leif & Joe Ellis and Nick Craddock respectively), Collapsing Market are now ready to release their first record. Eszaid (aka Louis Vial, one half of Mura Oka) inaugurates the imprint with four foreboding & gloomy trips that traverse through techno's darker shades into haunting ambient. Louis Vial merges slow drum patterns with foggy textures and sparse arrangements, reminiscent of early Kassem Mosse material. This is an incredibly affecting and mature first EP from the young producer who launches the label in the best way possible... And look out for the thoughtful artwork including a beautiful OBI strip and printed reflective silver sleeve!
