Galaktikas had yet another impressive year in 2015 with material from James Teej, Pezzner, Acumen and Sasse, and this album project is further proof of exactly why the label is still going strong ten years deep.
The Dark Matter album sampler sees the label strip back the full project and deliver five of the nine compositions of offer, the first of which is The Witch Groove, a raw house number employing multilayered analogue synth lines, crunchy 707 style drums and a general psychedelic feel. The Make Out follows and lays the focus solely on stripped-back rhythms and an ever-unfolding growling bass line.
Up next is The Sorcerer Groove which instills some jazzy aesthetics to things via soft piano chords, shuffled drums a walking bass line and vacillating synth drones. The Martian Groove as the name
would suggest tips thing into spaced out realms with soaring pads and hypnotic synth swells, while Neptune rounds off the sampler on a classic house tip with smooth chord progressions, resonant synth
licks and swirling filtered rhythms.
