MRAK Unveils New Six-Track Collection With The Pledge

MRAK unveils a six-track collection of new material with The Pledge EP. As one of the founders of Afterlife, he is now reshaping its paradigm. He introduces a sharp and elegant, but distinctive musical equation. These six compositions, all bound to the Afterlife ethos. This EP follows the release of previous ones including One and Manifesto.

Firstly, ‘The World Is Yours‘ featuring vocalist braev combines somber piano keys and urgent strings alongside energetic synth layers. It’s got a dark, brooding tone befitting the Afterlife brand. Secondly, ‘The Process‘ works from a hypnotic low end, supporting a solid melody that increases in intensity as the track develops. For ‘Their Law‘, MRAK teams up with David Lindmer, crafting an undulating track with captivating melodies and harmonies.

With ‘Portal’, the realm of consciousness beckons us in. The female vocal reverberates intermittently, complementing the dark bassline and bright synth lines. ‘The Flame’ again features braev and Canadian vocalist Wasiu for a three-way collaboration steeped in emotion. It utilizes a heartfelt vocal alongside a spoken-word segment, striking the balance between emotion and high energy. Lastly, MRAK collaborates with Omnya on the remix of ‘Never Ends’. The main melody provides an uplifting vibration, juxtaposed with the darker elements of this journey to the close of the EP.

“This is a snapshot of my reality. It is a composition, a challenge, that I took not knowing the outcome and its price – the amount of logical mazes I had to overcome and I still am. The biggest honour and most humble experience is the possibility to feel any sparkle of emotion, providing fragments of the music and the reality that I’ve developed as an artist over the years. My imprint soul and commitment to melody are adamant, as is the pledge to deliver and be loyal to this abstract entity called music; that gently accompanies our lives.”

MRAK aka Carmine Conte aka the enigmatic half of Tale of Us, spent more than two decades in the music industry. His compressive body of work focused on the evolution of house. Now with more clout through Afterlife, his rich history of hard work stretches to the beyond. Together, Take of Us receives global recognition. Apart, ANYMA and MRAK master their own fate. And altogether, they make the Afterlife a techno haven through events and their releases.
