Afrofuturist leftfield beats producer and Poobah Records co-founder Ras G has been pretty busy in the past couple months. Always seeming to release a steady stream of material, it's obvious he's not showing any signs of stopping, especially with the just-announced imminent release of his new album, Down 2 Earth. Keeping up the pace, he's announced that he's been tapped to kick off Dublin-based All City Records' Views of Saturn vinyl-only series of Sun Ra reworkings. With a release timed for mid-July, the first Views of Saturn sees him recording as Ras G & The Alkebulan Space Program and taking "Nidhamu," a synth-heavy track from Sun Ra's '70s catalog, and turning it into the deliriously spacey "MDU NTR." The single is currently available for pre-order, but for now you can check below for album art, tracklisting, and a full streaming version.
