Feeling a severe lack of ring modulators in your life? The solution: Rothkamm's FB02 - Astronaut of Inner Space.
Echoing back to the likes of Isao Tomita, Rothkamm's sine wave-heavy sound world is charmingly anachronistic compared with today's typical laptop-slinging electronic musician. Part sci-fi, part microtonal utopia with a little Stockhausen peppered throughout, a glittering drizzle of tinkles and swells swirl around the ears, taking the listener off into orbit.
Throw in a little Close Encounter of the Third Kind quote and there's fun to (be) had by all.
