PREMIERE – Raphael Schon – Healing (Freeride Millenium)

Freeride Millenium confirms it’s place as one of the most exciting contemporary labels in electronic music with a bold new three-part compilation series called IMPACT. Volume one features Massimiliano Pagliara, Jorkes, Alinka, Each Other, Benjamin Frohlich and Raphael Schoen with a further two volumes due for release in January and February 2021.

‘IMPACT’ came about after a conversation between label boss Jorkes and Lisa Jäger with whom they run the HOT all-gender sauna parties in Vienna. When lockdown hit and the parties were paused, they were left with nowhere to channel artistic needs and exchange feelings in an open and free space. When things started to open up, clubs were left out of the discussion and in these moments it became clear how important club culture is to the way of life for many, but also the IMPACT it has had on mainstream society.

From political movements to gender identification, sexual liberation to amplifying multiculturalism, club culture is a real driver of change. The pair then moved to set up discussions under titles such as ‘clubs as places for freedom and emancipation’ at the WAF Galerie that Lisa co-curates. Massimiliano Pagliara, Therese Terror and Cecile Balbous from Queer Base all contributed and two further talks are planned, with each one corresponding to each of the three volumes of IMPACT.

We are delighted to premiere, Raphael Schön’s speed techno of ‘Healing’ with its slick minimal synths and kinetic groove carrying you through the farthest reaches of the cosmos.

IMPACT is another thoughtful and widescreen project from the ever-dynamic Freeride Millenium and once again features photography and artwork by Daniel Rajcsanyi.

Release Date: 17/12/2021
