Ataxia land on Planet E with ‘Oblivion’ EP
Having made a huge impact amid Carl Craig’s celebrated 2019 entry in Planet E’s Detroit Love mix compilation series. Ataxia’s anthemic ‘Oblivion’ arrives on vinyl for the first time alongside a new cut, ‘Michaelangelos’.
Consisting of Eric Ricker and Ted Krisko, Ataxia have previously released on labels including Visionquest, 2020 Vision, Leftroom and Kevin Saunderson’s KMS Recordings. They currently hold down long term residencies at the legendary Marble Bar and TV Lounge in their hometown of Detroit.
Each track takes Ataxia’s notoriously detailed production techniques and applies them to a widescreen, enveloping template. On the b-side ‘Michaelangelos’, Ataxia further demonstrates a fluid ability to keep listeners on their toes, shuffling the deck but applying the same irresistible tricks to a rhythmic, tripping cut and the unexpected sample at its core.
