Astro 'Into The Past EP' 12"
Lost Palms welcomes Astro, Edinburgh-based purveyor of space age dance music, to the family with Into The Past EP - a high drama record which builds you into a state of tension and won’t let you stop dancing.
The title track is a cavernous peak-time warehouse epic that tempts you deeper, leading into the muscular pulse of ‘Strange Object’. This has real Basic Channel DNA, minimalist but driving. Another beefy dub techno pumper, ‘Calipso’ stays close to the kick drum and showcases an infectious syncopated bassline. Razor sharp scifi B1 ‘Spitzer’ opens up into ear tickling reese bass and some classic Euro squelch; it leads in nicely to ‘Mars’, a dramatic centrepiece to the EP begging to be let loose on a sunrise set. ‘Celestial’ is the last track but the energy doesn’t let up for a second, making use of another growling sawtooth bass patch and the hint of acid style pads. The record feels like a trip into orbit and back - enthralling and clever, yet perfectly built for the dancefloor.
