Monomotion, the project of French electronic musician ErolEngintalay, is pleased to share a new single, “Borders,” from his forthcoming EP, Fujisan, due July26th via FAKEMUSIC. Following the lush, tick-tock techno of “Mango” and the evocative lead single “Ecocline Patterns,” “Borders” begins with ethereal synth before coming alive with echoing percussions and beats.
“‘Borders’ was first made with the intention of symbolising Hope and to focus on the simple idea of reaching a certain freedom. It ended up being a therapeutic track that I wanted to sound like something light, dreamy, full of hope,” says Engintalay. “If I think about it, it makes me think that somehow this track is really a representation of my mood when I realised that I was granted a second chance and I had to take it. I finally had a source of hope and freedom to start doing what I loved the most, again.”
Written and recorded over a year and a half, the seven-track Fujisan EP is a reflection on the positive aspects of life—a sense of breaking through and moving forward that imbues the project as a whole. Inspired by a warm Japanese spring, Engintalay describes Fujisan as “a life test after every challenge I’ve gone through, physically and musically. It’s very spiritual, representing climbing mountains and breaking through walls to get further in life.”
