Anne Jackson Bakis Sirros incorporates an approach to sound design that is rich and maintains a sense of understated beauty. From start to finish, he has pushed the boundaries of electronic music through the combination of atmospheric textures, melodic elements, and laid-back downtempo rhythms that evoke an absorbing and engaging experience for the listener. The fusion of ambient and IDM is splendid. The artistic expression conveyed in this album is truly a masterpiece in electronic music. Favorite track: Dysfunction.

dbssll A unique and quite varied album with the hallmarks we have come to expect from Parallel Worlds. Skittering mechanical percussion, creative sound design, dark melodies and atmospheres all make their appearance on different tracks. Favourite track Dark Machinery.

mamonulabs Bakis Sirros is a modular magician creating a potent sound design brew! Plector combines atmospheric modular sounds mixed with glitchy micro-drums and pulsing bass. Favorite track: Atmoform.

Greek synthesist Bakis Sirros who records under the name of Parallel Worlds has become a familiar name to followers of the DiN label. His debut release was “Obsessive Surrealism” (DiN26) back in 2007 and since then he has released a further solo album, “Shade” (DiN32), as well as several collaborative albums with different artists including DiN label boss Ian Boddy & Node guru Dave Bessell.

“Plector” (DiN76) is his third solo outing on the DiN imprint and continues the deep dive into organic, analogue modular excursions that this talented musician is so adept at. Throbbing, deep bass lines are accompanied by sparse drum patterns and beguiling melodic synth lines. The album has a beautifully cohesive, dark and brooding atmosphere. Hints of a John Carpenter like synth soundtrack lurk around every corner but the sound world that Sirros creates is very much his own. At times the raw beauty of his synth patches grab you whilst at other moments the delicate, glitch like sound design details hover just out of sight. The album is built upon two groups of three rhythmic tracks interspersed with the dark drone of “Atmoform” and the beautiful, almost Enoesque final track, “Harmonic Pathways”.

Lovers of Electronica, Dark Techno, Downtempo & IDM will find much to admire in “Plector” and this new album once again showcases the unique talent of this highly individual musician.
