Sound Synthesis is the solo project of Keith Farrugia based in Malta. The record imagines an ‘Electro Planet’, with a the title track engulfing the listener into an alien world run by Kraftwerk autonotons, commanding synthesisers and vocoders live in harmony within it’s rich sonic landscape. ‘Robot Collision’ takes the record off into alien worlds with ominous overtones of spiralling synth lines, pulsating bass before descending into an abyss of modulation. On the flip, ‘Electronic Machines’ hits firmly at the peak time dancefloor and we can’t wait to hear it back on the big systems where it belongs loaded with dense palpitating bass lines, protruding from the midst of slick 808s and soaring string embellishments, and a dash of vocoder fragmentation. The EP is nicely completed with ‘Energy Patterns’, the understated bomb of the record and a juggernaut of pure menace, hitting with a bass line that will decimate clubs like fabric, Fold and Panorama Bar on their return – think churning acid lines, shrieking synth FXs, and a huge electro groove – not for the faint hearted but that suits us just fine.
