John Talabot’s Hivern Discs label has tapped Frankfurt duo INIT to deliver its debut EP for the imprint next month, to be followed later in the year by a debut full-length album from the new production project. Consisting of Frankfurt artists Benedikt Frey (whose has released with labels such as Mule Musiq and Live at Robert Johnson in the past) and Nadia D’Alo, INIT’s first release will land in the form of a five-track untitled EP which will feature two original works from the pair alongside remixes from C.P.I., Willie Burns, and Cliff Lothar.

Said to find Frey taking his “cosmic, plodding, and house-related analogue experimentations… and penchant for moody kraut-influenced psychedelia and atmospheric synth explorations” into new territory with the help of D’Alo, INIT’s debut EP can be previewed below before it sees its official release on March 9 via the steadily growing Hivern Discs outpost.
