It is extremely difficult to detect an ‘Extrasolar Moon’ and this analog dub techno cut has been proved to be as close to the free-floating planet as possible. Its bassline-driven raw jacking acid techno is perfectly aligned with grad_u’s signature heavily echoed dub, and the only thing that protects one from escaping the orbit is flipping to side B. There one’ll find yet another 10+ minutes of goosebumps, this time erected by ‘Geomagnetic Storm’, a pure and emotionally vigorous dubbed out bomb.
The 12” from Redscale is an ultimate equity between the outer space of a dancefloor and the inner self of the mind. Last but by no means least is the fact it has been mastered at the legendary Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin.
Deep and heavy, this album is a masterful example of an artist employing minimalist elements to their maximum potential. While a track may only have echoing synths and a kick drum, the phase90 project uses these ostensibly repetitive elements to construct something more than the sum of its parts. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys quality techno late at night. Listen closely. Alec L. Critten
