Spherical Disrupted - Basalt [Audiophob]

Put out on the cassette tape circuit via the Jena-based label that is Audiophob on October 1st, 2k21 is "Basalt", a six track EP release which sees the long standing producer Mirco Hentrich a.k.a. Spherical Disrupted collaborate with two different artists for three tracks per side respectively. Whilst the A-side, a joint venture with TC75, provides three variations of the title track that is "Basalt" starting with the so-called 'Xenocryst Edit', a well epic Industrial Ghost fusion ballad for fog-fueled late night dancefloors followed by the hypnotic "Basalt* Instrumental" which might even appeal to crowds fond of classic Belgian NuBeat as well as the 'Trilogy Remix' which brings on a slightly heavier and carefully filtered variation after an extended build-up built around the tunes trademark synth modulation. The flipside opens with the Spherical Disrupted and Darkrad coop that is "Transneptunian Objects (Sednoid)", a spatial and well timeless amalgamation of DarkAmbient and Industrial Electronics paired with hyperdepth and whispered vocals probably performing some dark ritual magick whereas the subsequent "Transneptunian Objects *Instrumental" weighs in more of a widescreen cinematic Electronica approach once again turning towards a classic NuBeat feel before the final version named "Transneptunian Objects *Afterglow Remix by Phasenmensch" keeps up with the slow tempo and NuBeat-references, yet presents more of trancey, spaced out and uplifting vibe before even introducing a chiming little melody towards the tunes very end for a closing. Good stuff, this.
