Aurum Miles aka Aurimas Mileöinas is a producer, songwriter and DJ from Lithuania, based in Vilnius, born in the late ’80s with a Queen’s “A Kind of Magic” vinyl in the hands. During his whole childhood, he was inspired by Classic Rock and Shoegazing Brit Music. Later, he discovered the world of electronic sounds by touching a Roland’s JUNO-6 for the first time, a fact that made a substantial effect on his future life.
After a lot of years practising, Aurum learned how to play the guitar, keyboards, drums and everything that makes noise. Eventually, he started producing “some kind of weird electronic music”, combining Rock, Psychedelic and Electronic sounds. He never settled to one style, always experimenting with compositions from different music genres. His productions vary from pink to dark… from vanilla to chocolate… or… whatever. In short, you’ll never know what to expect from him.
That’s why the versatile Esthétique is one of the best labels to lodge his music, especially when a release solid like this comes with remixes from Kuunde and Skelesys (SXDNS139), two of the best producers of the next generation. We decided to premiere the latter’s version of “Mental State” – a collaboration between Aurum and In Link – because, well, dinosaurs love rock, and Skelesys’ interpretation is definitely the most rock-influenced track of the EP. The EBM-like guitar riffs definitely enhanced the already powerful original.
