EUPHORIE (Parodos) [Official Video]: youtu.be/VwFAlTCBfJY


This goes out to all the people, running away from their emotions, running away from themselves, running away. Let me tell you this. You’re safe now. You’re safe — now. Dive deep into sees of light and sound, into the sees of sweet and love. You don’t have to be afraid. Suck in the smile of a stranger dancing next to you. Ask for a hug if you fancy but don’t be mad if another person does not want to. Let people be! And you? Feel. Embrace. And live the CATHARSIS.

After a few self-released singles and an EP on the Nuremberg-based label Computer Abuser Records, Rikky Mandozza return with their first release on Verydeeprecords. "CATHARSIS" tells the story of an entire album in less than 15 minutes playing time. An overwhelming load of rhythms, drones and emotions. Rikky Mandozza is the exploration of performativity. They are not someone specific, instead they are the canvas on wich different personalities can materialise themselves. They are everyone and no one. They are the empty book through wich familiar strangers can tell their stories. The music on "CATHARSIS" spans a brige from dark and mystical ambient to punchy uptempo club music. Contemporary dance tracks between broken house and techno, peppered with spoken word fragments and infused with a trap music vibe that connects back to Rikky's alias Erico. VDR is back on the dance floor!
