Inner Tension is the record label of Polish (Berlin-based) artist Blazej Malinowski which is an expression of his deep interpretation of techno. The label aims to provide an eclectic vision of dance music which reaches deep within the mind itself and projects atmospheric and warm sounds for the dancefloor.
The 001 sees a 4-track EP released January 2021 on vinyl/digital containing 3 originals by Blazej himself & a remix by Oscar Mulero.
The first release Inner Tension 001 called ‘Katharsis’ signifies the birth of the label and its sound & direction.
Katharsis (from Greek κάθαρσις, meaning “purification” or “cleansing” or “clarification”) is the purification and purgation of emotions — through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration
The 4-track EP contains 3 originals by Blazej himself & great rework by Oscar Mulero. The A1, ‘Katharsis’ is a classic trippy and deep techno signature from Blazej. A2 follows with a more clubby track ‘Behind’ with a hint of psychedelic deep techno feeling. B1, ‘The End’ brings plenty of energy and without a doubt a peak-time flow; uplifting & high hats hitting.
B2, the Mulero remix of ‘The End’ captures a real twisted yet emotional journey with a long build up and subtle breakdown with a raw finish.
