Sote (real name Ata Ebtekar) is arguably Iran’s most influential electronic composer and also the co-founder of the SET festival in Tehran. The festival have recently been collaborating with CTM in Berlin and more and more Iranian artists are getting noticed internationally. Sote started working with UK label Opal Tapes in 2016, with his seminal Hardcore Sounds From Tehran, and after last year’s brilliant Parallel Persia, he is returning to Opal Tapes in May. Moscels is a new album that is created “entirely from physical models and oscillators”, hence ‘moscels’. Check out the opening track now.
