For Amentia, music is a surge of emotions. Building on their classical training and many years of jazz practice as percussionist and pianist respectively, Etienne and Raphaël join Chapter 24 with an EP that is a typically bold, heavily musical fusion of styles.

Expressive and improvised musicianship is a common thread through the originals on the EP. Title track Prince Des Marais is a delicate dancefloor-oriented cut, built around a killer hook and rolling techno hats. It is followed by Luciole, a deeper exploration which conjures images of hazy summers and distant shores. Finally Epicéa closes the package, striking a balance between more driving beats and a strong sense of melancholia.

A hefty dose of power is added to proceedings by John Monkman’s Edition of Prince Des Marais. Monkman - who graces some of the biggest labels in the game including Kompakt, Get Physical, Anjunadeep and Rebellion - is on a fine run of form and his remix marks out the start to a big 2017 for him.

Finally, Chapter 24 bosses Sam Pauli and Más Black step up in the first in a series of Edits as part of their new VVerses project. The Luciole Fire Edit is a groovier, darker and more stripped down rework that retains the musicality and edge of the original.

The first EP of the year for Chapter 24 lays out five new stories in sound of typically high quality as the stars realign and the signs of the future start to reveal themselves.
