Silk Road Assassins - State Of Ruin [Planet Mu 402 Promo]

Scheduled for release on February 8th, 2k19 via Mike Paradinas' Planet Mu label is "State Of Ruin", the full length debut album brought to us by the trio known as Silk Road Assassins. Providing a 14 track journey within a runtime of 44 minutes with guest appearances by Kuedo and Wwwings featuring each on one tune we see the group paint a cold, clean and dystopian urban landscape both informed by emotionally touching, neon-lit arrangements which we've seen in the music of PostGrime producers like Ikonika, hark back to sparse futurisms we all loved in albums like Distance's 2007-released "My Demons", provide epic, ethereal synth arrangements in tunes like "Vessel" or bring on lively bangers for highly advanced dancefloors like "Familiar". Furthermore the Silk Road Assassins deal with floating Ambient arrangements in tunes like "Pulling The String", crystalline beauty in the hyperreduced "Bowman" or captivating sonic whirlwinds like "Taste Of Metal (Instrumental)" on this sonically fascinating debut which defo should be consumed on high end headphones rather than in a club environment or taken into consideration as a soundtrack by Hollywood producers for a next generation of forthcoming sci-fi eposes.
