La Guardia de la Luz – The Cosmic Egg EP
Mexico’s favourite cosmonaut is back for Paper Wave with three super deep, trippy cuts. The EP is not so much late-night as mid-afternoon two days later.
Cosmic Egg is a chunky 4/4 with a one note bass line as the atmospherics weave in and out with synths, found sounds, delays and studio trickery. Its an aural soundscape that could have be taken from the next Bladerunner as dawn breaks over a dystopian desert landscape.
Plano Existencial uses distortion and degradation to ride dubby EFZ over an analogue bass and drums. The track strips back to a beatless finish that would give The Orb a run for its money.
Finally, Zp Tpj has a hooky piano riff that hypnotises its way through a percussive groove as a Hans Zimmer lead synth line takes it in to psychedelia..
The Jedi Master himself Bill Brewster said ‘Cosmic Egg is excellent’.
