This is straight up space music: aliens, black holes, astronauts, star ships. Contained are absolutely massive beats and bottomless synth pads. ‘Anima Mundi’ is acidic, burning away the rust to reveal the shiny underbelly of a rocket ship headed to a distant solar system. This is true stargazing music, made for asking the biggest questions of our existence.
Hype itself is a devious beast, which can toy with perception, especially with regards to helping you internally over-selling, say, a sprawling eight vinyl monster as a landmark as you succumb to its fever. With that in mind, coming into ‘Endless’ blind was a delightful experience, both through an unexpected surprise and also knowing that all appreciation was untainted.
Tonally, it’s easy to pitch the Colundi Sequence as the logical successor to Aphex Twin’s Polygon Window alias, but you can easily point the finger of inspiration towards anything from Jeff Mills to Thom Yorke. Premiering on the Inverted Audio channels, we are happy to bring you the lead track from ‘The Colundi Sequence Vol. 1’ as a taster.
