Celebration intros with classic chunky kick drum and crispy hi hat combi which is joined by cool percussions and warming tremolo keys. An infectious dancing bassline moves in to the sound forcing you to move along with its groovy vibe. Piano keys and other softer notations find their way into the sound creating a sublime cacophony of rhythms. Cool glitzy style vocals add a swinging layer to the groove making this a nice treat for the floors.
Space Void Continuum takes us deep into the cosmos with a surreal slice filled with tight beats and swirling pads overhead. The bassline dominates the groove beautifully with its varied layers creating an infectious stance. Rhythmic percussions make dancing easy on this one as we go ever deeper becoming hypnotized by the dynamic sound. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.
Galaxy Sized Object provides a wonderfully crafted deep house groove with a famous narration from Terrence McKenna that both intrigues and mystifies. The track descends into a full on hypnotic house mover thanks to rhythmic arpeggios, stuttering keys and a solid bassline that drives the groove effortlessly. This is house music at its finest and this one will definitely rock the floors.
