First new music from Ulrich Schnauss & Jonas Munk in four years. "Asteroid 2467" is the first single off the forthcoming collaborative full length (their third), out in spring 2021. "Asteroid 2467 (single version)" is an edited version of an album track, whereas "Afterglow" is exclusive to this release.
Ambient and introspective in nature, but with a kinetic, polyrhythmic energy pushing it forward. There's a floating quality to Ulrich's synthesizer washes and Munk's guitar patterns, yet the two tracks are anchored by pulse and compositional direction. The duo brings their individual strengths to the table, yet the music transcends any of their previous work conceptually. There are echoes of blissed-out new age music and kosmische from the 1970s and 1980s, as well as traces of shoegaze-era abstraction and leftfield electronica. But ultimately there's no off-the-rack category that fits it. It exists in its own rarefied space.

A very enjoyable EP!
'No further ahead than today' is full of energy and it always listen at it smiling :-)
'Melts Into Air (Yppah Remix)' has a lot of wonderful details.
'Water Under The Bridge' carries Schnauss wonderful sequenced magic. Would love an extended version!
'Illusory Sun (Dave DK Remix)'. Not bad, dub & dynamic vibes here. ★ David Cortabarria Arregui ★
