The UK electro pioneer SCAPE ONE has just released a new album entitled « Sensory Data » under his alias TAU SAGITTARII (It’s the original name of a star in the southern zodiac constellation of Sagittarius). This brand new identity represents his minimalist ambient production related to astronomy. Therefore if like us you was checking on every SCAPE ONE’s releases his great down tempo & spacey tunes, here is the project you are attending for. SCAPE ONE has token the leap with an entire album and the results is as expected. Very addictive!
The experimental «Sensory Data» album can be approached in 2 ways, you can re-build a story based on the titles & on the dreamlike sounds; the script would be an advanced humans’ trip in the heart of galaxy. However you can get this project in more abstract way and just let your mind float. The entire atmospheric track listing is really solid, and the time could acclaim this project as an underground masterpiece in its purist approach. We have to mention also it’s always a pleasure to listen SCAPE ONE behind a synthesizer. At the same occasion, this lovely album is a good introduction of the new Croatia based label MEHAИIKA run by HRVOJE [the half of UKV]. Hotly Recommended!

One more time MR PAUL BLACKFORD drops an other solid project! Following his latest killer album on Binalog Records, PAUL BLACKFORD has just released a new EP on the TUDOR ACID’s imprint : Tudor Beats‘. This ep entitled “Dream Sequence” is a great invitation to float into the galaxy, into this special mood very representative of this producer. PAUL BLACKFORD’s music is a sweet blend of spacey Electro, melodic (UK) Drum’n’Bass and (Detroit) accelerated Techno. This EP features 2 original tracks and 2 remixes of the title track by SCREWTEC (BlackRed) and TUDOR ACID which are both not bad but a level behind the powerful original. It’ a real pleasure to see PAUL BLACKFORD keeps saving the underground music in its original form : groundbreaking, abstract, timeless, not too cleaned, truthful, fascinating… Recommended!

After an excellent debut E.P (‘Wrowreck’) released in 2010 on ∆ICASEA label, the producer CYGNUS is back on the same imprint with a fresh album entitled «Cybercity Z-ro». This project features 12 spacey electro tracks along with some lovely dub sounds. To have access to the final level of « Cybercity Z-ro », CYGNUS invites you at a virtual journey into an oniric world. In this one, you are going to meet some dwellers named the ‘Icaseans’ who are also the spiritual neighbors of an old submerged civilization named the ‘Drexciyans’… Just kidding, to seduce the music don’t really need to be translate by some images or some words and the CYGNUS production speaks itself but everyone could imagine his own (abstract) scenario according to this stimulating project. All that to say, the amazing atmospheric vibe of «Cybercity Z-ro» album would remind you the spirit of the DREXCIYA’s «7 Storms series» that is always an appreciated reference when a producer succeed to maintain also his own signature and that’s the case for CYGNUS. So if like us you love to swim in your thoughts from morning till evening, this solid album should be the host of your electronic daydreaming. Recommended!
