``This ICU EP, the fourth release for ``Katharsis Recordings,'' was released as the debut EP by Sabatoj, who is close friends with Masafumi Take, the founder of the label, and Kannabi.

Katharsis Recordings:

"'ICU EP,' the fourth release for Katharsis Recordings, is relased as the debut EP by Sabatoj, a close friend of label founders, Masafumi Take and Kannabi.

As the name express, the production of this work has a root in a hospital room, based on Sabatoj's experience of wandering between life and death by an accidental bicycle accident. As Sabatoj says, he was influenced by his hallucinatory experiences during delirium induced by morphine and laughing anesthesia. The two downtempo tracks full of a floating, trippy feeling that makes you feel as if you are flying to some distant place.

For the remix of this powerful analog synthesizer-based track, Mike Parker, revered by many techno artists for his iconic analog sound, and label owner Kannabi, who released a solo EP on Katharsis in June worked on production at their studio. In contrast to The two storytelling originals, Mike Parker has transformed into a more abstract, experimental, irregular beat track, and Kannabi into a track with a slightly faster BPM and more atmospheric elements.

The artwork for the cover was painted based on his own accidental experiences by artist ARIKA as on the previous album. The mastering was done by Thomas P Heckmann, who has been produced many legendary acid sounds to the world. "
