Title: Soul Of The Droids EP
Format: Download Only (MP3 + Lossless)
Label: Ukonx Recordings
Keith Farrugia started producing music with this moniker in 2009 on the Paul Blackford’s label Militant Science and after a seven years hiatus, he started again in 2018 releasing the “Acid Drive” single on Wirebox.
Listening to the EP a couple of times gave me the impression that Keith had in mind a sort of theme and under this influence, he wrote tracks that have a similar structure: a thing which isn’t bad per se but it popped out to my attention.
The EP opens with “Soul Of The Droids”, a nice instrumental which mix dark atmospheres and 808 robotic beats.
The following “Neurolink Cyborg” and “Electronic Slave” recall me a little a 2011 track made by Embryonik titled “Space Cadet” and I like a lot the menacing detuned/filtered vocals mixed with the synth stabs that sound like coming from the deep space.
For “Modulation”, Sound Synthesis is teamed up by Datawave (Mechatronica, Crobot Muzik ) and the result is a bass synth driven powerful dark electro tune with a dance twist.
Deemphasis’ remix of “Neurolink Cyborg” closes the EP giving to the track a less dark and more robotic flavor.
A nice EP which is available as digital format on the UKONX Bandcamp and on the major digital channels, such as iTunes, JunoDownload, Spotify, Amazon and Google Play.
