Review: Apart from a trio of self-released EPs, Los-Angeles artist Astronautica has remained loyal - and relevant - to the Alpha Pup imprint. This here is Edrina K. Martinez's fifth outing on the label, coming through in the form of a remix EP that reinterprets her recent LP, Gemini. There's her own version of "Palm Springs", this one being even hazier than the original and a lot more dance-centric, followed by Gypsy Mamba's remix of "*69", a wonderfully off-kilter rendition of the already twisted original - a true example of bass innovation. Toy Light also remixes "Palm Springs", producing what is essentially an ambient-dub version of the original track, and Elusive's take on "PNW" can only be described as deep house for the euphoric. A wonderfully diverse EP from Alpha Pup.
Review: Here we take a peek at the weird and wonderful as Bleep Bloop unleashes his journeys through distortion and departures from formality in his brand new 'Prologus Auxilium' project. Let's first take a look at 'Killing Machine (feat Nebr The Tiger)', which is a seriously intense journey through organized chaos as waves of unpredictable distortion form the underbelly over which Nebr runs wild with crazy lyrisicism. To follow, the scattered rhythms and sweeping soundscapes of 'Impel Tiltskin' occur before we hit the post-dubstep arrangements of 'Santoryu'. We finalize with the more structured half time LFO's and lethal sub pressure of 'Tremors', following a more precise dubstep layout.
