Review: Introducing Astronata, a fresh new act for Slime Recordings who arrive on the scene with two hybrid vignettes of piano-tipped, bass heavy and pop influenced cuts of future music. Expect '90s trip hop vocals in both numbers that find its thread through a cross section of club centric genres like drum and bass and two-step in "Survive" to dubstep, trap and something more progressive and trancey in "My Friend". Cosmic sound collisions!
Review: Two originals from experimental alt-vocal pop duo Astronata who find their way to Slime, a label taking on mainstream appeal with this set of dubwise vocal ballads. With elements of stadium rock making it into "Try" too, sound design befitting enough for a dystopian Netflix drama shines through in the dub Beans remix, landing the original in a decay of breathy vocal textures and post-dubstep rhythms. The title track "Divine/Fragile Slime" brings a singer-songwriting aesthetic to a backdrop of neon electro and slow motion techno, pop.
Review: We are absolutely loving this recent direction that Slime are taking as they begin to embrace more and more electronic experimentation, continuing with this stunning piece of work from Astronata. The track itself goes by the name of 'Pain' and is the perfect blend of airy synth tones and haunting vocal lines, with each lyric slicing cleanly through the shimmering soundscaping and high pressure sub lines. As well as this, Shamanic Technology and Dusko are on hand to give the track a tasty half time rethink, chopping the vocal for additional melodies and adding crunchy drum twists as well.
