Welcome to Astral Social Club: your MC is British avant-garde guru Neil Campbell. Put on your dancing shoes, because this is hallucinating, intergalactic trance music of the highest order and its about to take off. The up-beat, cosmic vibes of Campbells first terrestrial voyages aboard the drone/krautrock ship were already very impressive, but with Astral Social Club he sets sail for the stars. Campbell manages to create something entirely unprecedented on this album: trance music as played in the clubs at the other side of the solar system. Or perhaps were listening to the intoxicating smoke signals from extra-terrestrial pirate stations? While listeners may recognise the earthy kraut rock rhythms, the compelling, minimalist drones and a few catchy pop melodies, Astral Social Music is entirely of itself. The moment at which youve become completely immersed in a hypnotic groove is the moment the Club decides to let loose one of the awkward beats or melodies it has in its arsenal. This soundtrack for the ultimate trip surges, pounds, vibrates, swings, pulsates and sucks on your subconscious; its organic music breathes in and out like a shrinking and expanding universe. Leave all nocturnal troubles of the moonlit world behind you and turn your gaze to the sunrays emanating from the Astral Social Club. Reverberating voices and melodies from outer space and rhythmic pulsar fly past at rapid speed only to be swallowed up in a black hole on their way to another dimension. You Einsteins and Hawkings of this world, hold on to one another for the Big Bang Dance festival of your dreams.\r\nSieben Stax is packed in the beautiful envelope packaging, designed and handprinted by Jason Dodge & Christine Roland, a one-off pressing of 250 copies. - Bottrop-Boy.
