Zeta Reticula (Umek) makes his Censor debut with Star’s Wobble EP. A sizzly, mega-compressed five-track compendium of electro with ultra-scratchy highs and phase-freaked lows, it consists of three originals and two remixes. Of the former, ‘Unaided Eye’ boldly goes where few electro artists go, opting for a lower tempo, sparser soundscapes, and a more melodic underpinning. Of the latter, Sync 24 and Alex Jann serve up a tune that sounds like the bioindustrial workings of the Engineers’ spaceship from the Alien franchise. An overall extraterrestrial affair, transcending the limits of mere humanity.
In 2018, unknown artist James Infiltrate dropped an album of smart electro tunes that get everyone talking. It turned out to be an alias of James Burnham aka Burnski aka the Constant Sound boss aka Instinct Now some of the cuts from that album get choice remixes – Alex Jann flips ‘Flash’ into a caustic electro banger with bright synths and twisted bass. Stojche goes for a lurching, loopy, scintillating and loopy remix of ‘Isolate’ that takes you to the stars and the flip offers up an acid laced electro cruiser from Sound Synthesis and Relpek mix of ‘Reconnect’ that is melodic and mysterious.
The 7th edition in the Exit Planet Earth vinyl series features another serving of electronic cuts designed for space travel with 20/20 Vision debuts from The Exaltics & Paris The Black Fu, Alex Jann, Lost Souls of Saturn and Kim Cosmik.
