Sound Synthesis – End Of The Line. (In Tribute to Tron) [ER022]

Each artist has created a 15 minute track for each side of the record, taking you from pure electro tracks to very experimental compositions, sounds and atmospheres. Each side is divided in ”movements” in a continuous morphing process without any pause between different tracks.

VA – Exit Planet Earth: Krypton [EPE08]

The Exit Planet Earth series continues with the first ever collaboration between two undisputed electro-funk heavyweights Egyptian Lover & Soul Clap. The resulting track ‘Hai Karate’ is a slice of superbly produced classic electro designed to rattle bass bins from Miami to Mars. Following form in classic electro directions, Futurenauts present their debut track ‘We are the Futurenauts’ that brings a slower based groove reminiscent of ‘A Love from Outer Space’ into the cosmos and delivers a powerful message to humanity. The flip sees a welcome return to 20/20 Vision from the Maltese magician Sound Synthesis who continues the vocoded vocals but adds a state-of-the-art assault on the senses with a slamming track aimed firmly at the discerning dancefloor. EPE 08 is finished off in fine style by Mick Wilson & August Artier with ‘Akira’s Cry’, which fuses a deep house bassline and chords with tight break beat programming and powerful lead strings.

James Infiltrate – Void Remixes [INFILTRATE11]

JAMES INFILTRATE - Void Remixes

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.

Sound Synthesis – Electro Planet [VIS328]

SOUND SYNTHESIS - Electro Planet 

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.

Sound Synthesis – Hidden Realms [INFILTRATE08]

SOUND SYNTHESIS - Hidden Realms

Inflitrate’s electro mission continues unabated with this new drop from Maltese producer Sound Synthesis. ”Hidden Realms” is a brooding yet cosy workout, while ”I Guess You Know” heads into more sparkling, emotive territory, and ”Sonically Entwined” lets in a little Kraftwerkian noir. ”Electronic Feelings” is a more downcast track to close out the 12”, but there’s still plenty of punch in the broken beat powering the track.
