Its taken a long time in coming, and we didn't know if it was even going to happen, but the rumours were correct! This year is the year of comebacks, first with Boards of Canada and now we have Planet Boelex returning from the silence, with his first EP after his self enforced break.
Exist is the culmination of many sleepless nights ending with 6 tracks (43 minutes playing time) of pure Planet Boelex bliss! Of course, as its a Boelex release, we get a few surprise guests along for the ride, and Exist is no different. Bad Loop, Mosaik, Weldroid and Krister Linder are featured along with a sublime track 'Stay' by Lisas Antenna.
So, what do we get? Thumping deep basses and leads that soar into the stratosphere, delicate trademark arpeggios from our favourite artists, leading into bass bin rocking basslines, delicate and subtle pads and that progressive edge to get the adrenaline going. You can find all the classic elements that we're familiar with from each artist in the tracks, but directed masterly by Boelex himself.

Wow, what a wonderful surprise to find this new release! Suunta stands at the top of my ALL-TIME list of electronica and I expect this to fall right in to my regular visits to Planet Boelex on my playlist! Much gratitude!!!
