In celebration of the artists, music, and community that have made Last Night On Earth the imprint it is today and in the future. Part of the TEN series, Vol. II is a three-track collaboration by progressive-house heavyweights. Following the TEN release after the recent single ‘Aiavtor,’ progressive pioneer Sasha collabs with the hotly tipped Alex Banks [Monkeytown, Ninja Tune], up and coming producer Mr. Sosa [Anjunadeep], and a pioneering live band and electro-post-punk group Pumarosa.
The new EP reflects the imprint’s forward-thinking approach from Sasha's multi-talented DJ and producer. His way of thinking in creating music and passion for the progressive scene shifted to a new realm of dance music. This opens a new chapter and expresses the craft and artistry of producing.
‘Australia’ is a melody-rich four-by-four 8 minutes of constant transformation. Showcasing the melodic sensibility Alex Banks & Sasha share, Banks is an exciting addition to LNOE. His previous album on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown won critical acclaim, and he’s received remix requests from RY X and Bonobo. ‘Australia’ drops just ahead of his next solo album on Max Cooper’s Mesh imprint.
Sasha’s collaboration with Mr. Sosa has a more contemporary vibe with ‘Who U Are’. The pitch-shifted vocals and chords discharge tension in any room. The upcoming producer has gained momentum with his acid and breaks-influenced house. Mr. Sosa has many releases on Of Unsound Mind, Anjunadeep, and Street Tracks this year alone.
The collaboration with Puarosa lead singer Isabel Munoz, ‘Just Ust’ is the third track of the EP. The obscure sound filled with deep and morphed production. The soothing melody of her soft voice places a politically driven output. Built around a synthesizer riff, this track displays how powerfully a few elements can impact the imagination—championed by top-tier tastemakers including Lauren Laverne, DIY, and The Line of Best Fit.
The LNOE tour is in full force. Sasha will continue his tour in Brooklyn, NY, Barcelona, Ibiza, Madrid, London, and Amsterdam. Listen to the new three-track EP, and transition into another dimension in electronic music.
