Between all the Electro releases during the storm at the end of 2010, this U.F.O is worth more attention. If you have already listened to the “Mind of Metal” album, you are still under addiction… If you haven’t, you are missing something seriously heavy :

AS1 - MIND OF METAL - album - Transient Force - Miami - Electro bass - Electro - Hi-tek AS1Save it for another

AS1 is a workaholic : music producer, graphic designer and also the brain of the prolific electro label : TRANSIENT FORCE.
In 2009, Under the alias AS1, Arnold Steiner [Miami] has produced & dealt 4 albums in the whole year. During 2010, He has released only 1 album (“Code Reference”) and 1 E.P. Not enough for a workman isn’t it?
Bang, Bang… at the end of 2010, AS1 releases his new album entitled “Mind of Metal” including … 33 tracks for a pure dose of electronics music! This project is simply blow your mind and with such a quantity & a quality of tracks it needs to be listened again and again to get all the effects.
Well produced as usual, It could be estimated like the great continuity of backgrounds built along of his discography.
The AS1’s style is a great diversity of sounds : tracks with heavy bass, fast beats with a melancholic melody, deep electro with low bass, dark beat, trippy electro, experimental electronics, freaky remixes…All these ways can explain the overdose of tracks. AS1 is definitely prolific & he is living in its time & beyond… He seems to be a rare artist to keep a kind of groove over the bass and he has a finest taste in that brand production. Thanks to this album, AS1 has reconfirmed again his talent. No doubt, currently he is on the top 3 electro producers. After that, we don’t know what will be the next level for this artist but please give all your attention to his heavy “Mind of Metal” album… Highly Recommended!

Thanks to his talent and to the chance, JAUZAS is involved in many projects released the last weeks on the finest dark electro labels :

« DEPENDENT » is the 2nd project of the french producer JAUZAS THE SHINING on the TRANSIENT FORCE label. This new digital album is a special and great journey between electronica, experimental, ambient & techno music. For those who don’t know, this album features also a smart remix by JAUZAS of TRISOMIE 21 who are a cult new-wave band from the North of France. It isn’t easy to describe the magic JAUZAS THE SHINING signature, there is a lot of strange feelings… So listen it to make your own judgement :

JAUZAS THE SHINING has made a self-remix of his tune « PARTICULE » taken from the « Dependent » album. This remix has just been released via NEWFLESH RECORDS on a split-vinyl with the producer & runner of the label : UMWELT. It’s actually his second imprint for this label too. His debut Ep was the « Strange Satellite » in March of this year.
Here’s the brand new :



Additionaly, JAUZAS THE SHINING featuring also on two other projects :
– One track remixed by CROTAPHYTUS on the « SOM 3 » compilation released in October on SOLAR ONE MUSIC.
