# About Hashshashin
Hashshashin are a Sydney trio who draw from Middle Eastern musical traditions while exploring drone, progressive atmospherics and psychedelia.
Sitting on the border of Afghanistan, the region of Badakhshan in Tajikistan serves as both namesake and inspiration for their new record. Scenes of the towering Pamir Mountains and the dust-strewn Wakhan Corridor influence the journey-driven composition of the album, as do elements of drone, ritualism and modern spiritualism.
Hashshashin are influenced by Om, Tigran Hamasyan, Secret Chiefs 3, Dawn Of Midi and Le Trio Joubran.
HELU are an instrumental trio from Sydney, Australia. Their first release "Varisema" is a through-composed 35 minute piece based around a single rhythmic idea, warping from spaced out ambience to chaotic uproar.
HELU are inspired by The Necks, Tortoise, Dawn Of Midi, caves and skies.
