Following on from a contribution to the series earlier this year by Gerard Hanson as E.R.P., German imprint Solar One Music has announced that Heinrich Mueller (a.k.a. Gerald Donald of Drexciya) and The Exaltics will handle the third and final chapter in their tributary series to the Hubble Telescope. Together, the two electro acts will present a new endeavor entitled Project STS-31—a name that references the launch of the telescope itself.
The EP features contributions by both artists under various different guises. According to the label, we should expect "nothing but contemplative and cosmic electro beats using original outer-space sounds from the Universe." As part of the bonus CD package, there will be five additional cuts provided.
Spiralgalaxie will be released on September 5, and can be pre-ordered now at Solar One Music's Bandcamp (where 100 limited edition box sets featuring T-shirts, posters and more can also be pre-ordered). Stream snippets of all the tracks below.
