“Terra Incognita”, taken from the Modus Operandi, an EP by Impérieux.
There’s an air of mystery surrounding Impérieux. The Bulgarian-born artist prefers to avoid the spotlight and work diligently on music instead, building a sound influenced by the underground scene in Sofia and his Turkish roots.
Impérieux began production of Modus Operandi in Bulgaria and continued throughout his move to Berlin last year. The artist says it was a melancholic time; dealing with culture shock and a new language was challenging even without a pandemic. This EP is a reflection of that. Dark and brooding, simplistic and surreal, Impérieux took inspiration from the fantasy worlds of novelist Murukami and named the tracks after his work.
“Terra Incognito”, with its scintillating hi-hats, glitchy synths and resonant brass feels full of optimism and urgency. It’s here the full spectrum of Impérieux’s talent comes to the fore – the producer understands how to draw emotion from the listener, when to add elements and when to take them away, to create a transformative aural experience.
