heavy rotation :: Urulu - Greetings from Namek
Taylor Freels aka Urulu joins Melbourne based Voyage Recordings with his new EP Greetings From Namek. It's been a while since we have heard new material from Urulu but it has definitely been worth the wait. With his move from Los Angeles to Berlin a couple years ago, Urulu's sound has evolved immensely, taking influence from his new environments and overseas travels.
This 4-track EP definitely affirms to that notion, taking the listener on a cosmic journey through deep space and time to a planet called Namek. All the cuts on the release are danceable yet gratifyingly thought-provoking with Urulu's dreamy lush synth instrumentation. Loads of hooking four by four drums and pungent bass sequences throughout this one, making it difficult to point out a favorite. Greetings from Namek will be on heavy rotation for a while, I highly recommend it. The record is currently sold out through most online retailers but another 500 repress are in the works. Be sure to pre-order here or stream it in the meantime.
