The Fifth Planet EP
Dutch duo Artefakt (Field, Prologue) open The Fifth Planet EP with "Transit," a thick, heavy, and heady track with rubbery kicks tunneling deep and smeared, somber synths stretched and skewed into trippy forms. On "From Our Minds to Yours," the synths are lighter, more airy, and more uplifting, and induce trance-like states of mind. "The Fifth Planet" steps it up another gear, with celestial melodic patterns, heavy synth daubs, and spine-tingling pads all expanding around a ticking techno groove. Expertly crafted, serene, and supple stuff that will sound perfect in the dead of night on some intimate and spaced-out dancefloor.
