Press Info:
‘Incantations’ is the debut EP from MAGNA PIA – the new solo project by Cassegrain member Hüseyin Evirgen.

Hüseyin is one half of the Cassegrain duo alongside long- time colleague Alex Tsiridis. Renowned as a driving force within the world of leftfield club techno and contemporary sound design, Cassegrain are known for their work on labels like Prologue, and on Killekill and Infrastructure New York alongside Tin Man.

Evirgen now comes to close colleague Ed Davenport’s Counterchange imprint for this first fully fledged solo EP. As MAGNA PIA, he introduces his own very personal image of Techno – rich, textural and full of detail.

The EP plots a strong narrative throughout – from the low slung melodic churn of opening track ‘Dhul’ to the mutant acid of ‘Nyx’ at its epitaph. Over four tracks with four very different moods we are treated to a masterclass in hardware only, high-end electronics – weird, melodic, hypnotic, banging.

‘Dhul’ was first previewed on Rødhåd’s Groove Magazine Mix CD (GROOVE 155 / CD 64, 2015), and set the wheels in motion for this full EP.
