Stefan Vincent brings the heat with his first solo EP for Anagram, titled ‘All That’s Love Has Been In Vain’.
The EP opens with ‘She Will Keep An Eye On The Catastrophe’: a stunning modernist take on classically composed ambient music. The title track is a melancholic and building track with a healthy dose of four-to-the-floor power. We continue on the flip side with ‘Join Us In The Waves’: a percussive and swingy acid workout. The last track on ANAGRAM009 is Vincent’s ‘Everything I See Returns To You Somehow’ and it shows the more electro-oriented side of Stefan Vincent’s productions with a subtle wink to 90s IDM. Although his approach regarding this track stands on its own, the same profound atmospheric vibe the rest of the tracks have echoes through this layout as well. It's that same echo that stays with us as one of the highlights of our discography comes to an end.
Stefan approached this release as a multidisciplinary composition, in which he explores both his musical talent as well as his talent for visual design and painting. The cover artwork of ‘All That’s Love Has Been In Vain’ was painted by Stefan himself with his music for this release in mind, giving the EP a true Gesamtkunstwerk feeling.
