Since its debut release in 2017, Astrolead Recordings has established itself as “the place to be” for the aficionados of Space Music, Cosmic Disco, Synthwave, Retrowave, Cold Wave, and whatnot. Its curator and supreme boss, Ilya Santana (SXDNS072), has managed to keep the high standard of the label through top-notch self-releases and special guests & collaborators such as From Beyond (SXDNS Takeover 001), Beyond the Struttosphere (SXDNS263), Julian Sanza, Juan Soto, and Linda Axelsson, just to name a few.
Flying solo one more time, Ilya brings now “Fahrenheit 104”, a hot and boiling two-track EP filled with retro vibes and space dust, the result of the time he lived in Saturn… or Mars – we are not quite so sure. Jokes aside, Ilya takes the curation of his imprint very seriously, no wonder its releases follow a strict pattern when it comes to the sonority Ilya aims to deliver through his platform.
Premiered here, the title track follows such pattern to the letter: Starting with a fat bass line (seriously: what a bass!), followed by heavy doses of arpeggiated synth layers, guitar-like leads, and ethereal pads; Ilya proves, once again, he is one of the best in the game.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
