In the last years, Asfast (aka Leon Leder) has established himself between Deconstructed Club Music and Dark Ambient. Originally socialized in the Breakcore scene, which also had a strong Metal impact, Leon Leder merges his diverse influences in order to create a new level of aesthetic entity called „The Prime Same“. He almost skips musical measures while using a slow narrative linked to oddly rough and intrusive rhythm passages. These noteworthy characteristics emphasize the idiosyncratic sound world of Asfast. While „Altar“ (Amen Records, 2018) already revealed moments of mysticism and symbolism, „The Prime Same“ sets out to deepen these impacts by deconstructing genre boundaries. Asfast celebrates a ritual, which faces the conflict of accessibility and confrontation without losing its inherence and particular focus.
