The Astra Spectra run-through continues with its sixth item. A series of electronica releases with cosmological titles are making their way into the heavens. Tilting according to gravitational influences within musical spheres, French music producer Fleck E.S.C. unites the skies for 486.134. Here we receive 5 EDM tracks that bang louder than a building-site and end up pressed on limited blue vinyl. The name of the album in fact refers to the Hydrogen absorption spectrum of our very own Sun, which is the atomic property of gobbling up the photons buzzing at just the right speed. Like a sea of energy, with waves and whirlpools, we're dragged as little individuals into this fabric of sound.
With a whir and a click, house style snare driven beats fold the paper and create a focus. A siren enters, on rubbery lines and mechanical entourages. Springy electronics dabble with spacious surroundings as the mechanism takes a moment to reset itself. Garbled radio voices crackle through the mix as divulgent streams of rhythm froth in pebble lines trails. A frantic thrust of futuristic dreams vector on the scope as ethereal noises bounce from stable and familiar drumming. It's called Hot Bath, and with its bubbly texture it's easy to see why.
Next is Further Away. It growls into the space with a rumble of powerful drums and runs off cymbals that roll between the beats. Synthesiser music bounces in alien formations as rhythmic bass and spring jiggle and dance to the atmospheric soundscapes hurtling through the corridor of production. It simmers down, atmospheric bass sparkles in plucked tranquillity as vibrant harmonics echo into oblivion. Rhythm returns, with throbbing intensity and three—dimensional distributions.
Mysterious sounds swell up from revolving projectors as a squelchy rhythm section manifests alongside modem sounds and printer-like whirs. Jostling engineering forms random programs of rhythmic sound that coalesce into something tangible. Drawn synthesiser slowly explores angular corners of scale in eerie and enchanting motions. Inflammatory mixes fast and shifting with slow and repetitive in a juxtaposition of tenuous tensile tones.
Next is a Fever Dream remix of the previous number, Inflammatory. It's produced by label head and series visionary Syrte. It opens with cosmic beats and grinding energies that radiate within spores of collapsing tide. Revolving mechanical apparatus vibrates and clinks with tempered adjustment. A deep and energy rich bass then lays over the mix like jam being spread in luxurious portions. Distant transmissions kiss the aerials in pulsations of computerised progression as passing engines interact with the interface projecting from the artefact.
A ghostly array of tubular resonances coils from an emptiness poised to roar. Bass tones thump with growling semblance as darkened zaps fly from projected angles within mirrored scenery. Buzzing chatter brings us to a new area where phantom like wisps circle overhead in playful nonchalance. Oddly manicured tones curve and bend around climbing bars of graded position that cradle an air of mixed feelings and driving beats. Lost Privileges ends the album with a spooky and haunted drive through the closing chapters.
