Milan-based vinyl-only label Hashplant returns with another out-of-this-world pressing, this time local artist Sorin Rastoaca aka Vid being the one behind the release. Titled “Ansam”, the 12” brings forward three distinct tracks designed with solid minimalistic rhythms that combine experimental, melodic and dark themes into a mesmerising and hypnotic journey. Managed by Federico Mandelli and Albert Hipman aka Enivrèz Vous, Hashplant was founded in 2015 and since then it delivered top-notch music signed by Basti Grub, Moratu, Plusculaar, Yaroslav Lenzyak, Dimitri Monev, Costin Rp, Silat Beksi and Mihigh, amongst others.
2019 proved to be an excellent year for Vid, with releases on imprints like Forever And A Day, Sound Of Vast, AVi Records and his own playground, An|dromeda, as well as numerous appearances as a selector on various podcast platforms. Specialized in real underground music, he also performed at several events in Romania, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Under his Egal 3 alias, he recently published “Colectie De Amintiri” with the Australian label Counterculture Records, a 3×12” LP that was long-awaited and sure delivers the vibes.
