"Mitch Walcott's Europa CD is set 7 years from now, on Jeff Mills' label, Tomorrow, a label intrigued by potential utopias, by intensive states, past and present. It arrives before the machines and waits for them. Indifferent yet raging. Europa's 7 tracks impose 32 minutes of crushing space. Titles and tones converge to induce an ominous immensity, a sense of individual erasure, of the human blown away to a speck. The thundering trauma of looking on, listening to and identifying with the cryobot as it drills its way through ancient ice. Like X-102 Presents The Rings of Saturn, Europa is parahuman in its extremophilia, it's fascination with the extreme conditions of deep space. Outer space overlaps with inner space to draw you into a private time system, into a 32 minute universe that fits into an iPod. Europa is the fuel for the long journey across the hazardous terrain of the head. It grows a universe in the brain." -- Kodwo Eshun.
