Electro Astronomy! After the galactic Global Surveyor 3 and Blastromen albums, Germany’s “Electrofunk Resistance” Dominance Electricity returns with a split EP release showcasing a collaboration of extraordinary German and Serbian Electro talent.
Dagobert, a resident Dominance artist since the mid 90s, opens the first half of this EP with a spacey intro and three playful and strongly produced Electrobreaks jams. Following up is Serbia’s Kalson who previously released with labels such as Das Drehmoment, E75 Records and on Dominance’s 2010 installment of the Global Surveyor series. Next to his remix of Dagobert’s “Astronauten Weltenraum”, the core track of this collaboration, Kalson delivers two songs fusing classic melodic vocoder Electrofunk with four-to-the-floor elements and closes the release with an epic cinematic ambient piece.
The cover artwork is created by the legendary Argentinian sci-fi comic artist Juan Giménez. Active since the 1950s, he is most known for his contribution to the 1981 cult film Heavy Metal. His female astronaut’s beautiful sad-eyed face perfectly reflects the Dominance Electricity trademark deep melodic Electro style, and supports sending the listener further into deep space!
