Vector Lovers Capsule for One
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Soma
Electro‘s torrid and escapist love affair with outer space dates back to its ‘80s inception and on this gorgeously nostalgic LP, Vector Lover‘s Martin Wheeler does the originators‘ dream of interplanetary life one better. His precision-engineered bass, drifting synths, and synthesized bleeps bleach away any traces of Bambaata‘s humanizing pre-MIDI vocodered robo-funk with music that could have come from nowhere but deep in one man‘s hard drive. Wheeler‘s predilection for IDM iciness and techno‘s recent galloping renaissance makes this one Capsule equally suited for solitary space walks or martian clubbing.
