    Interesting track, doesn't blow me away but it's certainly worth a listen. Stylistically it's more similar to his first batch of Pure releases from 12-13 (which i do actually quite like and much more than his recent ventures). This one has a Electronic Architecture vibe to it, less in-your-face big synths, and more pretty old-school sounding stabs. Feels more experimental and less polished than a modern club track - and i like it that way for some reason. That vocal sample is an earworm too.

    @MasterTuxx This whole EP is inspired by 'The Outlaw Ocean', a book by Ian Urbina.
    See www.theoutlawoceanmusic.com and don't forget Stoneface & Terminal were also part of this music project.



    One of the chapters in the book that really stuck out to me was ‘The Next Frontier.’ This chapter perfectly captured a microcosm of the wider issues regarding the environment, and how insensitively large corporations will treat it in the name of financial gain. As an artist, I connected with the feelings of desperation and helplessness that accompany seeing injustice and trying to prevent it, only for efforts to be rendered futile. Yet I was inspired by the unrelenting hope of the volunteers and activists depicted in this chapter. It gave me a much needed reminder that change is possible.
    Reading The Outlaw Ocean is a reminder of the power of words and stories. Much like the written word, music also has the fortitude to evoke an emotional response that taps into a memory, forges associations and reinforces what we may have forgotten.
    I invited my friend and musician David Harrison (Super-Frog Save Tokyo) to lend his modular-synth wizardry in the creation of my tracks to help give my music an extra edge that reflected the subject material. After spending a week holed up in my studio in Wales — immersed in the words and sounds of The Outlaw Ocean — we re-emerged with four tracks that weave a tapestry of sobriety and hope. It was one of the most intense weeks spent in the studio of my career.

    Ha, that vocal sample from Existence is so mid-90s! Expected Yeke-Yeke at any moment.

    Decent release, Rust is my favourite, then comes Frontier.

    Actually got a bit of modern Orkidea feeling to it. Not bad

    This is sweeeeeet. Rust for sure my fav, but the others I like too. Can you imagine if Rich put the time in to make a full album in this style, but also with a Trance flavour...man that would be good.
