Uncanny Valley 50.7

About this item

Uncanny Valley continue their 50th release celebrations with another V/A 12", this time uniting a clutch of familiar faces for their first appearance on the label. After Uncanny Valley 50.1 anticipated the coming summer, Uncanny Valley 50.7 creates a slightly menacing heat lightning. The perfect soundtrack for the phenomenon that is commonly known as Aurora Polaris. The American-Australian duo The Golden Filter make their label debut on the A1 and it's a tailor-made start. "The Pull" is centered around minimalistic drum work, dystopian pads and sparse vocal dots that aim for an inward catharsis. A returnee after eight years is mysterious Mayan Gold from Dresden. His "Komm Und Entspanne" (means come and relax) rides on acidic waves and embracing synths, which drag the dance floor with their tractor beam. Norwegian Charlotte Bendiks' first track on Uncanny Valley continues the sound language she developed on Comeme. "Pasco" is a percussion-heavy track that sounds just as compelling as it is disturbingly beautiful - techno tropical, neo tribal, this is music to lose your mind to. Finally, Austin-based artist Katrina Fairlee teams up with Uncanny Valley-stable Sneaker for the psychedelic drum lesson that is "Oak", stripped back, smoked out and laced with tape haze - this one jacks like mad!
