Scottish electro producer Galaxian, real name Mark Kastner, will release his first album in over a decade.
We Are Power follows Galaxian releases on Helena Hauff’s Return to Disorder and Ilian Tape, plus a collaborative EP with DJ Stingray. Across 11 tracks, he ruminates on the confrontation and power clash between humankind and nature. What is authentic power? What is granted power? What is innate natural power? How is power accessed, wielded, utilised, and felt?
Sonically, we’re told that although the album is “quintessential Galaxian,” his blistering beats and razor-edged rhythms have been softened, his menace has melted, and the angst has “slightly soothed.” The album will be out as a label collaboration between Shipwrec and Berlin’s Foul-Up.
Known for performing in an aviation mask, Kastner melds polyrhythms, complex sound structures, and dark ambient textures to create what’s become a trademark take on Detroit electro. Repent, his latest album, landed in 2010.
