Nation is an exclusive dance beyond dance label, which features an array of artists that will continuously be releasing material. Each work will be different in context, artwork, musical production and will be limited to 300 copies.

Mutant Beat Dance - Mutated Moods

Mutated Moods
Mutant Beat Dance follow up their L.I.E.S 12" with four disjointed cold wave / dark Chicago house tracks for Light Sounds Dark.
Wavey synthlines, off kilter freakiness, cosmic pads and mutated basslines - fraught with tension and with an unsettling semi-conscious eerieness.

Its about times of change and transformation, where we feel odd, lost or alienated. Life comes and goes, people in our life come and go, emotions come and go. we have a limited time on this planet and nothing stays the same and everything is in constant change.
