Galaxian dismantling the electro paradigm24-02-2022
Let’s face, these past few years there’s been a LOT of electro produced / released. As with any wave of hype, at some point the results become so diluted that even an excellent production from a pioneer starts to feel tired. Some labels have been mercilessly mining, some producers churning out, when there’s also plenty of examples of artists who know how to edge some interest into the sound. Take someone like DJ Stingray, who constantly pushes a freaky, fast-paced and fearless strain that stays true to electro’s roots without rehashing them. In a similar vein but doing his own distinctly weird thing is Glasgow producer Galaxian, who demonstrates his might and twisted creative vision on a killer new mini-album for Italian label Curtis Electronix. We’re here for a label so nerdy they name themselves after the maker of an iconic synthesiser chip.
Listen to Destroy Your Future below and tell us it’s not some of the freshest gear this side of Neptune. Due to drop March 7, providing your future isn’t destroyed in the meantime.

Hauff Shaped Wax29-01-2021
We’re all for extravagant novelty when it’s matched with kick-ass music… who knew a die-cut dystopian picture disc of Helena Hauff facing off with a gruesome alien (presumably one of The Exaltics) was what we needed in the grim year of our lord 2021? This collab follows previous Exaltics link-ups with Egyptian Lover and Gerald Donald no less. Head to the Bandcamp to drop a pre-order, and listen to the previews below.
