About the Release

The interplay between light and dark is the metaphorical leitmotif du jour on Jean Claude Ades' Awake E.P., inspired by the people who “come into your life and give you joy, bringing brightness, turning the night into the day” and the universal feeling of emerging from darkness with fresh perspectives, according to the Scorpios veteran. Deep and downtempo, the lead track Awake is given a tropical touch on the Sabo feat. Conga Fist remix, but not before the listener is drawn into a tentative and uncertain euphoria on New Generation. Featuring rare vocals from Berlin-based producer Dennis Scheffel and a plethora of organic sounds and instruments from around the globe, Awake was imagined with imminent possibilities in mind and marks Jean Claude Ades’ first release on Scorpios Music.
