As sometimes it is the case, birth might also bring the end of something else. For its first release, Heard Island introduces the last release of Canadian Jesse Somfay under his Borealis persona. To complete his legacy with his Voidness and Glittervoice albums released on Origami Sound, Vivipary consists of throbbing Techno pieces while keeping the same techniques and textures from Borealis’ previous work. Heartshell comes out as a perfect sum of Borealis work, joining lush vaporous string pads to pulsating and harsh percussions, somehow bringing it close to an abstract idea of early 90’s Trance, while Wild Blue Rose puts out an ominous voice and psychelic percussion, making it reminiscent of older cuts of Tribal Techno. Remix-wise, Mondkopf takes the more abrasive aspects of Wild Blue Rose and adds power chords and relentless melody, turning it into a more industrial cut of the original. Heard island’s head Axel Helios made two different remixes of Hearshell. The first one, exclusive to the 12” of the release, takes the melodies of the original and turns it into an Acid Break jam. . This conclusion to the Borealis alter ego creates the foundations on which Heard Island will build.
