Hansen and Polish artist Fischerle provide the debut release.

Montréal artist Devon Hansen has launched idioms, a new digital label for “leftfield and dub-leaning techno”, ambient, concrète and minimal music.

The label’s first release is a four-track EP called Winter Studies, a collaboration between Hansen under their Persuasion alias and Polish producer Mateusz Wysocki, aka Fischerle.

According to the label, the two producers exchanged stems over email, with Wysocki’s modular synth parts coming together with sound design and drum programming by Hansen. Listen to the EP below.

Hansen has been releasing music for several years – formerly as Lotide and Stefan Jós – across labels such as Where To Now?, Astro:Dynamics and Opal Tapes. The first record from Hansen’s Persuasion alias was last year’s Quatermass EP on Black Opal.

Winter Studies is released on May 4 and can be pre-ordered now at Bandcamp.
