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’.
