Mirko Loko is back for another outstanding three piece cut. Following this yearʼs ʻDeux Elementsʼ EP alongside Detroit living legend Stacey Pullen on Cadenza and fresh of the heels from his intricate and warmly received “Gloria” track on Visionquestʼs ʻFall Winter Collectionʼ, Mirko closes 2011 on his label home with the ʻAstral Sinesʼ EP.

“Butterfly Effect” makes a deceivingly harsh entrance with a heaving kick and tight clapping percussion that solidify Mirkoʼs signature tech character. Rolling through tight, electric keys and stripped back sparks, “Butterfly Effect” takes us on a formulaic journey until a corner is turned and a second identity revealed. Glitches transform to melody and formula to freedom as soaring synth beds evolve “Butterfly Effect” into a dream like state of diluted electronic.

Up next is “Girl On Acid” featuring the delightfully slurred voice of Rafaela Rudd. Warped and twisted minimalist techno woks as “Girl On Acidʼs” platform; crashing drums and off kilter sound bites sporadically drop as Rafaela speaks us through a frank and indulgent tale. Building tension with every swelling musical bleep and crackling vocal intonation, “Girl On Acid” is a gritty and raw addition to the EP.

Lastly, Mirko Lokoʼs “Corvus” shakes the EPʼs pre conceived dance floor make up with a charming and intricately layered piece. Lead by penetrating chants and stunning percussion and string work, “Corvus” has you hypnotized not only by its percussive beat texture and serene vocal but by its unique arrangement and vibe. “Corvus” proves Mirko Loko as a producer with many sides, sensitivities and growth as it cements ʻAstral Sinesʼ into yet another thrilling ride from Cadenza.
