VOYAGE

The fertile soil of Australia has become a hotbed for house and techno talent in recent years, and Perth native turned Melbourne local Roza Terenzi is fast becoming a leader of the new school. Her debut for Voyage delivers a three-piece suite of experimental, rhythmic workouts; forward thinking with a heavy lean on early rave nostalgia. "Weakest Link" gives us bleepy R&S vibes, hallucinatory chords and scratch fx, twisted into a kinda breakbeat rumbler. The slanted percussion continues on "Seminyak Dream" a tough, rough and rude slice of breakbeat house with a tasty line in womping bass. "Lilli’s Dream" rocks up at around 7am, shielding its eyes from the sun and pulling you into a big pilled up hug. The EP is rounded off with a fast-paced remix of the title track from Vancouver's D. Tiffany, who goes fully cybernetic with this CJA banger.

Matt says: Roza Terenzi heads up the new school of ravers with a warehouse ready trilogy of tunes. Really strong stuff here as she displays a keen ear for hefty beats and thick sounds. All the massive!

After a trio of hot, hyped and now very hard to find releases, Voyage return with a fourth release from an until now unknown artist. Unearthed from the hull of an abandoned discovery probe, the origins of Ausländer are undisclosed and unlikely to be uncovered, but the three artifacts here revolve around what is only understood as "Ausländer's Theme", which is twice reinterpreted on the flip. I couldn't tell you whether he's man or machine, but there are some seriously cybernetic vibes emanating from this galactic wax. Picking up distant radio frequencies, the main mix on the A-side finds Ausländer weaving a space age bass arp around a snapping electroid beat, setting the scene nicely for the celestial keys, UR pads and blistering synth lines which follow. Unhurried, cosmic and killer dancefloor vibes for the star gazers and ravers. Over on the flip, the "PM Dub" finds our hero locked into a death duel with a robotic proto house groove, reshaping elements of the original into a wall shaking, retro-house rocker complete with growling bass, squealing guitar and plenty of headfucking sample abuse. Closing the set out nicely, "First Contact" safely carries us into the star child's protective bubble to the sounds of misty pads, relaxed synths and gentle guitars - cosmic? Balearic? Brilliant! Undoubtedly beamed back from the future, this wondrous exploration of thought, rhythm and undiscovered worlds is a welcomed addition to the Voyage catalogue.
