Hmm, sounds like a follow up to Heliopause! Need a cleaner sample, it feels like this is a live rip from A&F's Lumi set and not directly from the mixer, but I love the dark melody. I assume it's a solo track, there's no M.I.K.E. influences anywhere to be heard

I also have an association with it that it is a continuation of Heliopause from 2017 but I hope that Robert will somehow refine this track because the break is too short and too strong in my opinion. There is nothing less to wait for.

I hope FSOE mastering doesn't destroy Heliopause follow-up as have waited long enough for it.

Heard this over the weekend at Printworks and the track is mega! I'll have a better sample posted tomorrow with a bit of crowd chatter unfortunately. Regardless, that synth lead is proper dark :devilish:

Definitely a variation to his Heliopause, but you know what? I absolutely love it!
Its sooo good, the melody is very spacey and quite serious, no cheese included, this might get extreme rating from me, about 9/10

It's not one of those tracks that will mesmerise you through it's complex musicality or well crafted arrangement. It knows it's a simple track, but the execution is spot on and the dark, spacey groove is perfect. I noticed DJs are also pitching it up 3-4bpm in live sets, which does help I have to say.

Melody I enjoy. Overall very clean/robotic sounds, which never really hits the spot or excites the ears. Couple more bpm and might have more life to it too. Not bad but probably wont come back to it.

Bleh! 0.0000001/10

Robotic yes but I disagree about the clean part.
