It is scientifically proved that Earth’s atmosphere has a series of layers, five to be more accurate: troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and exosphere, each with its own specific traits. Recent studies indicate the existence of a sixth layer, though: the so-called struttosphere. And from Beyond The Struttopshere, Leo Strutt and Ben Chetwood have been sending some signals that can possibly confirm that we are not alone! Jokes aside, the boys release their second EP, this time on French label Mélopée Records, featuring two stunning originals and two well-crafted remixes provided by Roliva and Camilo Sanjuán.
Talking about Camilo, his interpretation of “Replicants” was the chosen one to be premiered: If the original presents a pounding hambone bassline, bolstered by an unrelenting 303, spacey sitar stabs, and a futuristic vocal sample, delivering a cosmic disco aura, the remix took these same elements to a joyride through the dark side of the moon, from where it came back wrapped within a trippy but ominous attire.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
