Number 57 and Müzmin at the controls again. The west coast modular man returns home with his Artalan EP, again delivering sci fi otherworldly techno full of details and sound artifacts.
We also welcome visual artist, bass player, multi artist Nuria Estúñiga on the artworks. From now on every release will be illustrated by one of her images, giving our records another collectable twist.
Musically wise, release starts with Artalan an hypnotic FM fuelled cut spiced with metallic random hits over a bell like sequence that goes on and on until paroxysm.
MM follows speeding up the pace, fuelling the subs and darkening the mood.The rolling beat is soon followed by more percussive elements and micro drones and bleeps creating an evolving feeling.
Strait is the fourth cut, in a more old school Detroit vibe. Shuffled beats. continuous beeps and subtle pads as an ode to the motor city.
Last cut Faz opens with a solid kick soon joined by modular artifacts until a low frequency bass line and ring modulated sounds set the groove straight.
