The five-track 12-inch is out in October.
The label, run by Portguese DJ and producer Violet, describes the meeting of these two artists as a kind of spiritual encounter. "Years ago, as baby DJs, neither could have known that their Goddess had a plan," the label writes. "In order to hide magic in the open, she drew a map for them in the detritus of a cultural moment. She placed alchemical objects in second-hand record stores, dollar bins and a barn in rural New Hampshire. She hid shamanism in hardcore rave anthems, garage dubs and 90s major-label club remixes that many other DJs ignored."
It's their first joint release, following a number of gigs and radio shows together throughout the year. They recorded the five tracks in February of 2018, "when Maya went to heaven and Eris accessed the realm of the Motherbeat from a port deep inside." (The Motherbeat is both the name of Eris Drew's party, and the concept she uses to describe the transcendent psychedelic state that raving can achieve.)
