Repopulate Stars - Outer Limits
27 / March / 2019
Repopulate Mars returns with its Repopulate Stars series for ‘Outer Limits’, including eighteen otherworldly cuts from SPNCR, Martin Ikin, Federico Ambrosi, Black Girl / White Girl and more.
Releasing music from the likes of Michael Bibi, Detlef, Latmun, Solardo and CamelPhat, Repopulate Mars is one of modern house music’s most important platforms. Following on from an epic collaboration between Eli Brown, Anabel Englund and label founder Lee Foss, Repopulate Stars - the label’s various artist series – returns for a summer instalment titled ‘Outer Limits’ featuring eighteen cuts from an array of established and emerging talent.
Appearing on Repopulate Mars before with collaborations alongside Lee Foss himself, SPNCR opens the package with fellow Los Angeles-based producer Steingold in ‘For The Real’ featuring infectious lyrics over a bouncing bassline and funky chord stabs. The release then proceeds to meander between different styles, with the wonky ‘Minute Workout’ from Dirtybird’s Kolombo, purring low-end and heady vocals of Jojo Angel & Red Weeler ‘Buck Of Donks’, as well as the tantalising ‘Probability’ with its upbeat melodies and soulful vox.
Having recently dropped one of the label’s most successful tracks, Martin Ikin returns for ‘Serious Talk’ complete with shifting drums operating alongside a compelling groove and powerful female choruses. Reblok then takes things into dark and techy territories with ‘Your Love’ before KC Wray teams up with Andre Salmon for ‘Hugs’. Further in, Repopulate Mars regular Federico Ambrosi deploys modulating lasers, wonky percussion and delayed vocal cuts in ‘Future Dancefloor’, whilst Relief duo Black Girl / White Girl paint intricate patterns, floating stabs and driving bass in ‘Mystikal’. Finally, SOSA ties it all together with the shuffling and twisted ‘Booty Shake’.
