Cardao has been busy in the scene for ten years and takes big inspiration from greats like Carl Craig and Jeff Mills and many other Detroit heroes. His style is powerful and raw, cerebral as well as physical, and to date he has proven this with releases on labels like Monocline Records, 91Records and E2Points.
The stellar 'Heart Cosmonaut' is up first and over seven minutes really creates a brilliantly spacey vibe with its spooky and rippling melodies, supple drum lines and elongated grooves. Full of atmosphere and cinematism it's a great opener. 'Cosmic Galaxy' continues in the intergalactic techno vain with eerie and spacious, deep and heady grooves that are economical and hugely effective.
The remix comes from ODD EVEN boss Andre Kronert who is a synonym for powerful and high-octane club sounds as both a DJ and producer. The likes of Len Faki often reach for his work and for good reason, because it is brilliantly loopy and involving. This remix is no different and builds in creepy little layers to a widescreen techno groove direct from outer space.
Last of all, 'Haunted Synthesizer' has a loopy lead synth line that rocks back and forth on its heels as distant pulses and static electricity sounds colour a paddy techno drum line. Weightless and expertly sci-fi, it's pure musical storytelling.
This is one of the more heady and considered EPs !Organism has released lately and marks another high point for the tireless label.
