The Aligning Minds duo of Mike Folk and Daniel A. Merrill has long been associated with some of the best in cutting-edge ambient, post-dubstep, future garage, and IDM tunes coming out of the experimental and transformational scenes. At long last, the pair are stamping their own signature sound with the newly formed Aligning Minds Recordings seal, and forging new sonic territory for artists of their ilk.
The label's first release doesn't stray too far from home with Merrill's solo project A Path Untold. Nine delicate soundscapes decorate Secret Subtle Light, which is slated for an October 13 release.
Today's premiere, "Inwardly Majestic," creeps from an introspective titter to a full on housey groove that incorporates all sorts of subdued flavors until the build's apex is reached. It's really a delight.
Daniel Merrill collaborated with Toby Verhines on the artwork for this release, which happens to be outwardly majestic, and a special bundle including both music and art will be available on the release date.
It's been a long time coming, but the minds behind Aligning Minds are finally taking a giant leap towards making their mark.
