Ninth instalment of Redscale. Grad_u with a masterpiece of dub techno.
“Holdback”, an unexpected twist of events for followers of Redscale, is actually a bold step forward in terms of pace and light. The enticing chords work like a magnet, and the potential of the lady on the mic is no lower than that one of a siren. The personal weapons of grad_u, the most powerful of which are the embracing loops, are of course out there, indicating the producer’s inner spirit and roots.
Picking up where “Holdback” left off, “Outwards from Laniakea” is a statement more rugged, yet as absolute as the message on side A. It’s an invitation to put that jacket back to the cloakroom, switch off that phone and let yourself go, again and again. It’s, once again, a compelling statement against conformity.

Still getting my toes dipped in deep techno. I can say though that it changed my view of techno as a whole, especialy since I didn't like the genre at all. Safe to say I'm happy that I found out about such wonderful music, and this LP is such a gem. The beats and sounds are just gorgeous. Surrealistic H. Sapiens
