  The Content Label presents a dynamic new split EP from Lex (de
Kalhex) and Dday One, titled “Parallel Presence”. The EP’s title
reveals some clues: ‘parallel’ refers to something similar to another,
while ‘presence’ imagines a thing that exists but is not seen. These
two producers, as kindred spirits, strive to work on this deeper level.
Parallel Presence is an expressive step forward, presenting intricate
beats, thoughtful samples, and otherworldly vibes colluding towards
a mesmerizing whole.
Los Angeles based producer Dday One bookends the EP with “Key
Signature” and “Moving Force”, displaying his undisputed acumen
for rhythm construction and skillful arrangement. The opening track,
in particular, is a beat-head’s manna, featuring a serpentine bass
line, staccato vocals, and heavy piano riffs, all synchronized at a
headnodic tempo. Alex Besikian aka Lex (de Kalhex) is a visual artist,
producer, and MC, known as the co-founder of Paris’s Akromégalie
Records and 1/3 of seminal French hip hop group Kalhex. His cuts
“Brilliant Circles” – with its night owl drum beat, tinkling electric keys,
and gentle horn line – and “Solstice” – featuring ringing tones, bluesy
guitar riffs, velvet saxophone, and some serious rhythm play –
uncannily compliment Dday One’s contributions, cementing “Parallel
Presence” as an EP best ingested from front to back.
Visual and audio art also come together in the project’s cover
design, which was a collaborative effort of the two producers. The
Content Label aims to bring together distinct forms of expression,
with sound, thought, and visual art combining through the imprint’s
releases. “Parallel Presence” is just the latest evidence.
