Melbourne man turned Berliner Andy Hart‘s Voyage Recordings started as a platform for cosmically-inspired dusty deep house jams. As the producer’s sound has maneuvered towards tougher, electro-inspired sounds, so has the label’s direction. The label’s new VYGR series capitulates this gradual transition, with Andy helming a 12″ holding two heavy, spacey tracks.
The A-Side, “Neutron Capture” is a hardware driven cut distinguished by its ever-present and acid-tinged bassline. 808 drums lay the foundation underneath, while galactic synths and effects layer in to accentuate the affair. It’s a bit more stripped-back at times than the producer’s Mistress In Your Mind EP — also on Voyage — but a logical progression in sound. The B-Side, meanwhile, hosts the clubbier, pulsing “LFTR”. Again, the 303 influence and sci-fi feel appears, but in a higher energy format meant to rock the dancefloor.
Voyager 1 drops in two weeks time, on September 28th, and will be available in both vinyl and digital format.
