Indigo Aera's 6th release by Louis Haiman called 'Soul Purpose' is a real journey trough time. Having released two of this tracks on early Transmat compilation CD's, the other six unreleased tracks are carefully mined from Louis' archive of 15 to 20 years old. Mastered By Helmut Erler at Dubplates. Limited to 377 Copies.
Louis Haiman's music is a balance of gentle synth arrangements swimming atop a sea of low-end frequencies. Ambient soundscapes drift among layer after layer of meandering melodies while deep, syncopated rhythms and bass keep listeners grounded.A study in contrasts, his compositions are both tranquil and urgent brought on by some of his earliest influences: Art of Noise, Propaganda, Pet Shop Boys, Jean Luc Ponty, Depeche Mode, classic rock and of course, early Chicago House and Detroit Techno.Many years of traditional music study led him to Boston's Berklee College of Music in 1987 where he began his first electronic music experiments. Though, it wasn't until many years later in 1998, while living in New York City, did an ominous note find it's way to him from none other than Derrick May and Transmat records inviting him to collaborate."I was never one to solicit my music to labels, preferring to perfect my sound. Music was a very personal endeavor for me at the time and I was happy to keep it to myself."From his original work on Transmat, Louis has been able to evolve his sound and circle of friends worldwide to include releases on Fountain Music (Japan) AW Recordings (Germany), Abstract Forms (UK) Icon of Desire (Italy) Indigo Aera (Netherlands) and his own digital imprint Fwdthought Music (US). Indigo Aera 006 'Soul Purpose' is mined from an archive of 15 to 20 years worth of creativity, "I am honored that people are discovering and being moved by this music in 2012".

StopTheCorporatocracy_WhereHaveAllTheLeftistsGone (none) (San Diego) wroteSuper dig all these tracks except for one (Retrau Neu). Would love to find myself grooving to these in a club with a tight system - deep taught bass (not floppy), dancing and meditating, both, while these tracks surround me and my friends. Would love to have these tracks on the radio while driving thru new scenery. Good stuff.
