As Astronautica, Los Angeles native Edrina K. Martinez has been busy as of late adding to the vibrant tapestry that is her hometown's electronic music scene. Stylistically, Martinez looks frequently to her immediate surroundings for inspiration. From the slow-motion haze of her self-titled debut to the lush guitar work of her performance at last years' Low End Theory Festival, Martinez recalls the work of fellow L.A. beat makers while avoiding cliché with fresh instrumentation.
For today's XLR8R download, Martinez has offered up "Glass," a cut off her Alpha Pup released Gemini. In exchange for the guitars and filtered vocals of other LP tracks, she presents an instrumental mood piece accented by reverb-heavy synths and laid-back percussion.
