Turk Turkleton – Hive Mind EP [LOP13]

TURK TURKELTON - Hive Mind

Back in December 2019, Lunar Orbiter Program added Turk Turkleton to its roster via a fine split EP. Now they’ve given the mysterious artist a chance to shine via a debut solo EP. It’s a quietly impressive affair containing four fine cuts, all of which boast stupendously sturdy drums and tons of intergalactic electronics. Our pick of a very strong bunch is ‘Rock It’, a throbbing peak-time workout smothered in undulating acid lines and razor-sharp electronic riffs. That said, there’s plenty to set the pulse racing elsewhere across the EP, including chunky, funk-fuelled opener ‘Safe’ and rumbling Drexciya-esque closing cut ‘X-Statione’.

CEM3340 – Perfect Stranger LP [LOP05]

CEM3340 is back on Lunar Orbiter Program withi his first LP. Following up a couple of great EPs on Lunar Orbiter Program back in 2017, the mysterious and shadowy CEM3340 is back with his debut LP for the London based imprint. Expect yet more of their proper underground electro from a Drexciyan point of view, on the Perfect Stranger LP: from the dirty future funk of “Story Of An Egyptian Man”, the steely EBM/industrial influence on “Tormented Man” or “Jammin’ in the Dark” or just straight up-in-your face electro breaks like on the killer “I Can’t Get Wrong”.
