Ambient Review Techno

Soviet Space Research Institute (SSRI) – ARPA Spatial Industries Commercial

Line Explorations – Release: 26th June 2020

Dark arpeggiations and occasional splutters of analogue drums, in this conceptual 4-track offering from Soviet Space Research Institute.

The opener Xerum 525, has vague echoes of early Jeff Mills era techno, dark and foreboding mechanical melodies. The drums come to focus in ARPA Inteceptor, following the vibe and context. The second two tracks take the accelerator off and it’s here we are left in suspended animation, released from the airlock and left to float into space.

Dope artwork on this one and looks to be a special package all round.
