50,000 Light Years


Released: 3rd June 2013 | 2 track funk single


50,000 Lightyears is an exercise in minimal, raw, psychedelic funk. Awash in organs, and synths backed by the heaviest of drums with a track intro that recalls early Silver Apples electronic experiments mixed with James Brown Band arranger David Matthews' excursions with the Grodeck Whipperjenny.

The B-side Space Race ups the tempo and dials up the drums even more with a banging breakbeat that continues and doesn't let up through the whole song. Organs, synths and heavily effected guitars filter in and out of the track to keep it on the spacey and experimental side of things.

Not much is know about Sputnik-1 other than they originated from the remains of what was formerly the U.S.S.R. and their recordings were all done using vintage Soviet gear and instruments.
