The Lost Satellites is our second release. A collection of four electronic songs, forgotten spaceships once isolated in their orbits, now rescued and carefully taken care of.
Pixel Music’s Unsubstance is an immersive deep techno anthem, full on strings and melody in the best tradition of Detroit Techno. Louis Haiman delivers Ghosts of Gratiot, a shiny, floating track with a moving sense of purity. On the other side, passEnger & xluve with Out Of Order / Prayer build a moody, contemporary digital ‘opera’ around a spacey analog arpeggiated line, while techno veteran Inigo Kennedy closes the release with Spaces Between, an epic, slowly building, melancholic track.
IOD-002 is the second record of a series that explores the parallelism between the journey of the needle in the groove and space travels themes, carried out by different vinyl cut techniques.
This vision goes back to the golden age of vinyl, when music coming for the future was written with unique mastery and artistry on the physical mean, asking the listener to pay attention to the aural events and surprising him with the ‘unexpected’.
These songs are our own satellites, our lovely, solitary conveyors of communication and emotions, in perpetual motion.
