The prolific underground producer launches the new label with his 'Within Borders' EP on May 12

Acclaimed underground producer Jonas Rathsman continues to progress dance culture with an extensive catalog of ominous and enchanting melodies, and his latest effort proves there's plenty more where that came from. While his Within Borders EP -- officially released today (May 12) as the debut project on his brand new label, ELEMENTS -- may have a constricting title, the three-track original compilation is a spellbinding sonic voyage that balances a cinematic focus and production technique that colors outside the lines.

Exclusively premiering the EP with Billboard Dance, Rathsman said, "When making the Within Borders EP, I wanted to release something that indicative of who I am as an artist but also to set the tone for what is to come on the label." He added, "Each track in the EP offers something different, and 101 Secrets in particular might not be what you’d expect from me but I’ve been blown away by the feedback across the board. I’m excited to share so much more new music with you this year!”

Riding high off major success with label French Express and official remixes for the likes of Sam Smith, Disclosure and London Grammar, Rathsman's newest venture sees him founding a new label, ELEMENTS, which is spawned from his staple bi-monthly mix series of the same name. Forthcoming releases on the imprint include Ashworth, Kincaid & Sinal and Swedish newcomer Axel Bower.

Speaking on his years-in-the-making endeavor, Rathsman stated, “The last two years of my career have been a bit of a journey in a musical sense. Since the ELEMENTS mix series launched, I always wanted it to grow it into a label as I was hearing so much inspiring music from friends and artists who I have always loved."
