Fasten your seatbelts and ensure your tray table is securely stowed as Collective States take you on a Big Stormy ride. The soundtrack: melodic tech; your destination: ‘Kamino,’ a 3-track EP to be released on 27 Dec.
Get launched into the mysterious world of ‘Kamino’ with this rollicking progressive romp through space and time. A punchy, rocky ride with a molten core, this track is not unlike its namesake, the enigmatic Planet of Storms.
Spaced out melodica is accompanied by haunting vocals, as ‘Lonesome Ghost’ draws the listener back to the extra-galactic centre of the techno universe. Mildly turbulent, the track builds and releases with nebulous form, leaving stars in your eyes.
Reach cruising altitude with the mellifluous ‘Moonjockey.’ This euphonious long-player is punctuated with elevated kicks, stirring up a cosmic aural storm which will have you kicking up dust on the dancefloor.
All good things are three: this EP is a must-listen for those who know and love the classic melodic techno vibes from the Southampton-based Collective States.
