REVIEW: Someone Outside - Constellation EP out on OFF recordings

1. Someone Outside – Constellation
2. Someone Outside – Forbidden Planet
3. Someone Outside – Lost City

Someone Outside takes us on a journey into space with three pieces of shimmering and emotive techno.

"Constellation" opens the EP with a broken rhythm, sizzling hats and shímmering chord stabs.

"Forbidden Planet" mixes driving percussion patterns with a deep pads.

"Lost City" resolves the EP with an energetic bassline and arpeggio hook.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Someone Outside comes on the legendary Berlin based imprint Off recordings. The Constellation EP includes 3 incredible tracks for those who like their techno to be progressive, melodic, atmospheric and travelling. In short deep, dark and long. Constellation takes the bouncy break techno approach with breaks like groove, dark basslines, hypnotic rhythm, cinematic atmospheres, emotional strings and melodramatic touches. Forbidden Planet can become easily the soundtrack in National Geographic style documentaries and get plays on techno stages as well. Bouncy grooves, thumping haunting basslines, moody synthy hooks, emotive strings and tripping out atmosphere that absorb the interest of the listeners straight away. You will feel lost in music for sure. Lost City is equally exciting driving progressive techno with fat basslines, in your face grooves, melodic touches and floating strings making this journey inspiring and imaginative for sure. Highly recommended. #PureGold Love IT   [/content]
