Legendary Canadian producer The Mole teams up with Los Angeles’ SONNS for ‘Space Machine’ on Machine Limited this December.
‘Space Machine’, a three-track excursion into mid-tempo, disco-inflected house is the result of two days of creativity from The Mole and SONNS in the latter’s L.A. studio, marking their first collaboration as well as The Mole’s debut for the label owned by SONNS and Travis Kirschbaum (Split Secs, Warehouse Preservation Society).
The title track opens the release with almost-there vocals riding atop marching drums and a guttural, languid bassline. As the track progresses it ebbs and flows, constantly shifting and evolving towards a conclusion doused in a haze of dreamy pads and chords. ‘Space Machine Dub’ turns inwards, applying a clinical smattering of delays and reducing elements from the original into the quintessential dub form.
On closer ‘Tropic’, Gonzalo Torres Sr. provides percussive depth to SONNS & The Mole’s laidback but detailed and decidedly funky production which marries a powerful sense of groove with heady musicality.
Capturing the best of the organic and mechanical while showcasing the spirit of collaboration via something that feels like a genuine ‘jam’, ‘Space Machine’ is released on Machine Limited on 18th December and features artworks by Jamie Paton of Cage & Aviary.
