What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.

– Kobayashi Issa (1763 – 1828)

From our position in the Nothern Hemisphere, February brings the feeling of transition, as the cold weather and short days begin to give way to the humble signs of spring. We still feel a bit powerless after the dark times, filled with unstable weather and colored with the sparkles of the Aurora Borealis. But I feel like the light of hope for the endless summer festival nights, euphoric dreams, dancing under open skies, and delighted wearing of clothes with short sleeves, is getting closer now. And so far let’s try to enjoy the last days of winter while they are still with us.

In this recap article, we have listed all the tracks we have featured in Monument Premieres during January 2023, to keep you up-to-date and well-reminded about what is happening on the horizons of hypnotic techno. All of those EPs are already released and you can purchase them on all the platforms!

Enjoy the beautiful music vibrations and we meet again same time, same place, but with different Premieres in the next month.
