FNOOB DiGiTAL welcomes back midwestern techno stalwart DJ D-ReDD, bringing four new tracks to us from his studio in East St. Louis.
This is D-ReDD's second release on FNOOB DiGiTAL, and also has previous releases on the American label Urban Kicks Recordings, the St. Louis label Anode Records, the Dutch label Frame Workxx, and D-ReDD's own labels, Eargazim 14 and Ghetto Hitz.
The dark, echo-laden title track of the EP per D-ReDD was inspired by a NASA documentary.
These four tracks definitely deliver the vibe of the future that was; four-on-the-floor kick and hi-hat patterns nonchalantly journey forward at 132 BPM through modulated synth percussion recalling flavors of Adam X's Traversable Wormhole project,
yet still maintain a foot on planet Chicago with looping, eight and sixteen step sequences bringing to mind Lil' Louis & DJ Pierre.
This EP comes with three remixes of 'Moon Rockets'.
Jambalay Records boss El Brujo turns up the tempo to 138 and disassembles the track, starting with only kick and closed hat, adding splashes of ambient noise and a rearranged version of the original sequence.
Makaja Gonzales, owner of the Frame Workxx label, takes the tempo down to 130 and pumps the bass up in a dubby affair with more clever rearrangement of the original loops, even throwing in a couple of snare drum buildups that somehow don't seem forced.
To finish things off, Mark Neenan of Filth Infatuated delivers a uniquely dirty UK hard acid flavored workout of a remix.
