1. Parallel Shopping
2. Out In The Open (Edit)
In a shopping mall of singing machines a revolution is brewing. Where instead of you going shopping for them, the machines slowly rise up, collect themselves together and decide to go shopping for you. In ‘Parallel Shopping’ we can hear the sounds of the machines organising themselves out of their slumber as they slowly begin their bizarre free market march to gather their forces and prepare to stock up on you.
Flipping over to the next side the story continues with ‘Out In The Open (Edit)’. Their plans having been revealed to the masses, the machines have no other option but to launch a full scale attack. Under the cover of night the machines rally their forces as soft synths sing their rhetoric into the night while the crash of metal and booming basses foreshadow the likely winner of this sortie…
The EP is out now on Beatport, and will physically hit the stores on 23-10-2015. Find the snippets here. Find the EP on Beatport here.
