Lost Souls Of Saturn – Lost Souls Of Saturn [RS1909]

R&S present the eponymous, debut, full length album transmission from Lost Souls Of Saturn, an epic in scope, time and space, multidimensional mind trip. This ambient house masterpiece combines flavours gathered from across the galaxy, stewing them up into a delicious primordial soup. Old sci-fi soundtracks, acid, free jazz, avant garde, musique concrete, world music and more all whirl around an underground-dance-music axis. Primarily Lost Souls Of Saturn are Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa, plus further opaque participants congregating to combine music, imagery, and storytelling into an inextricably linked whole, all wrapped-up in a philosophy of their own making.

Lone – Ambivert Tools Volume Two [RS1708]

Lone AKA Matt Cutler delivers the second instalment of Ambivert Tools, breezy atmospheric house, stacked with ‘floor ready trax, inspired by his red hot Magic Wire imprint. First up is the tropical percussion and telescoping arpeggios of ‘A Mind’s Eye Melody’, displaying Cutler’s talent for a nagging melody it comes on like Tangerine Dream remixed by 808 State – pulsating drums, hymnal chords and gooey sub bass. ‘Looking Glass’ calls to mind a Mood ii Swing dub – truncated stabs and jacking rhythms overlaid with shimmering resampled piano chords that give way to a slashing FM riff that contrasts sweetly. In the B2 slot Cutler unfurls a hushed, 6 minute balearic reprise of the ‘A Mind’s Eye Melody’, heartstopping Emulator ii chords and harp glissandi wash over a wistful flute figure pedal to sweetly memorable effect.

Space Dimension Controller – Welcome To Mikrosector-50 [RS1303]

Space Dimension Controller is in the cockpit, preparing to land his sophomore album thru R&S. A robot pilot announces imminent landing on the intro to the hyPer-Funk of the title track, and ‘While I Was Away’ wistfully gazes starboard to lush neo-soul vibes – imagine OPN doing slo-mo electrosoul. ‘It’s A Cold Planet Without You’ keeps a tense slowfast vibe with fluctuating drums and strobing cyber-dub FX, and the Eno-esque ‘Music For Spaceports’ decelerates the whole thing to lush ambient bliss mode upon reentry to orbit.

Lone – Galaxy Garden [RS1206LP]

LONE - Galaxy Garden (Front Cover)

Matt Cutler is back with his fifth album, which is an impressive feat in just five years of releasing music. Galaxy Garden starts off on a more esoteric tip with the tropical electronica of “New Colour”, in its sunshine chimes. By the time we get to “Lying In The Reeds” we’re up to a house tempo that harks back to the softer side of early Detroit. It’s when “Crystal Caverns 1991” starts up that we reach the most blatant distillation of old-skool; kicking off a breakstep beat with sweet but punchy 90s synths, the track cuts into a deadly rave motif without so much as a pause in the beat and it’s like being back in, er, 1991. Every track reeks of originality, whether it be the surprising track structures, the superbly detailed production, even the evocative imagery that the music conjures up.

Space Dimension Controller – Temporary Thrillz [RS1008]

The ‘Temporary Thrillz’ doublepack vinyl release sees Jack advancing his signature sound over this maxi EP format, that also includes 4 locked grooves and comes in a limited first run on purple splattered vinyl! People have difficulty pinning down the SDC sound, I’ve seen it described as electro, space funk, cosmic disco, pop-psychedelic, techno-funk, jazz fusion, disco house and electronica. It’s probably all those things and more, and we are proud of the fact that its so hard to pigeonhole. The ‘Temporary Thrillz EP’ contains intergalactic slow jams, deep club excursions and mid tempo space funk, all with the SDC trademark depth, soul and finesse.
