It’s not the first time that preconceptions have required resetting on this channel. In the instance of Aleksander Stawierej though, before we pierce some, we’re going to proliferate a few! Aleksander is the Warsaw-based keyholder to monikers like Raw Tech Audio & ACIDØ; the A&R warden of the Mental Asylum label and through his Indecent Noise guise, also the institution’s foremost resident. The latter’s an alias that – over the last 10 years – has become inextricably linked with the sound of the 303, leaving a size-12 musical bootprint on planet trance. One of the genre’s more provocative agents certainly, but also notably an album-shy one – ‘Everything Is Connected’ representing his first LP foray. Long-playing it is indeed, with the collection (available to stream, download and on vinyl & CD from today) is made up of no less than 15 studio-hot cuts from the Pole. The album splits its track deck between solo offerings, co-productions & vocal collabs, topped off by some I.N. remixes and a less-than-expected cover. Included amongst are partnerships with vocalists like Noire Lee, as well as in-studio pairings with Lostly, EverLight, onTune, Diver & Ace and Renegade System.
