Nicola Kazimir will release his debut solo album in August, titled Post-Heretic Dracula X Chronicles.
We're told to expect "30 minutes full of diverse, rough, evil, melancholic electronic music compositions either partly sampled out of important melodies in his life or fully produced by him." The album draws from contemporary and past cultural references evolving around institutional-critique, occultism and dividualism, and manifests those via meta tags or sonic compositions.
Kazimir is a part of the collective Les Points based in Zürich, Switzerland. His art/music draws from '90s rave utopias, decentralized and dividual thought, institutional-critique, occultism, and progressive and accessible frameworks as showcased at the collective's Mikro space, a physical room open 24/7 making it available to all social layers. His record label Les Points appropriates these ideas and transfers them to the distribution channels of electronic music. Kazimir, he says, refuses genre-stigmas and Post-Heretic Dracula X Chronicles is described as an example of that diversity.
The album is pressed onto one single record to "make it more intense and not dragged out too long." It will be Les Points' 12th release.
