The now unknown future of entertainment has reinforced us to believe in the power of music and the meaning of sound in our daily life. Spending time with music is the best way to escape reality and reinvent ourselves”. Melbourne-based Hollow Lab’s very first release of 2021 comes with a great variety of house music, minimal, and peak-time 4 am old-school aura.

After making its mark as a significant release on the Hummingbird By BPZ imprint, the Future Legend “Mental Menthology” LP sits comfortably amongst the collections of modern-day electronic music fanatics, so it only seems fitting that this February the label will release a special remix package following on from the album. The three-track remix EP meanders through fantastic productions from DoubtingThomas (Eastenderz, Organic), Georgios Papamanoglou (Deep Series, Mixx Rec), and label founder Benjamin Philippe Zulauf, all of these affiliated with the label in past times.
The opening track “Tickling Whispers” is remixed by the established DoubtingThomas who shows no signs of slowing down in recent times. The remix consists of trickling and pensive synths that maneuver around a clean drum arrangement.
