Matt Edwards launches Stranger in The Night with his first solo material since 2017. The Rekids offshoot will release regular music by four artists, namely Radio Slave, King Britt, Anthony Rother and Fred P, who will each drop three EPs over the next year.
“With Rekids being 100% focused on releasing music for dance floors I felt the need to create a new platform to explore a wider musical vision and invite some of my all-time electronic musical heroes to be a part of the series,” says Matt Edwards.
Both numbers near the 12-minute mark but each track portrays a different aesthetic. Opening with precision drums and crystalline notes, ‘Ground Control’ makes a nod towards the hi-tech soul sound of Detroit and drives forward using a sultry bassline, erratic chords and the occasional icy stab as an array of contrasting sounds operate in unison.
On the flip, a syncopated rhythm lays the foundation for ‘Last Communication’ whilst a tantalising melody joins poignant synths, constructing a profound and hypnotising journey.
