Vlsonn has made a name for himself in his home city of Toronto as a DJ and a frequent remixer, putting his own spin on tracks by names such as Wiz Khalifa, Pharaohe Monch, and James Blake. He's recently been added to Vancouver-based label Aufect, which released his Black Sea Influence EP on June 4 exclusively through Beatport. On EP closer "Sing2049," Vlsonn crafts a throwback tune that delves into the recesses of deep, dark techno, featuring percussion that lumbers along laboriously as it grows dense and heavy with layers of cavernous atmospherics. Vlsonn's record, which you can stream after the jump, also features a remix of the title track by label boss Cure with HxdB and Sleepyhead, and will be released worldwide on June 19.
