Turn on the strobe lights and the fog machine. shtum returns with its second record, this time by Dresden’s very own Kryptic Universe. His EP comes with five cuts full of dark and gritty Future Jazz. His Techno Funk is playful as it is evocative. Just listen to the bass line in “A Light In The Box“ and the appropriately titled “Critters Funk”. Not to mention the crazy piano in the title song and the rather hard-hitting “Dark Sky”. On top we got the mighty XDB on remix duties and his take on “Signals”.
Again, the illustration on the B-side label is by Aram Haydeyan.
