Ataxia releases ‘Experience Island Earth’ on Play It Say It


The Detroit duo of Ataxia make more big moves with a fantastic new ‘Experience Island Earth’ EP on Play It Say It.

Ataxia had a huge year in 2018 with EPs on this label, Visionquest and Kevin Saunderson’s KMS following other releases on Leftroom and Nervous. All the while they have maintained their now ten-year residency at top Detroit venue TV Lounge and in the studio they continue to breathe new life into their grooves with elements of acid, cyberpunk and futurism that have found favour from the likes of Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones and Marco Carola.

On the EP, you can find the tracks ‘Six LFO’, a warped track with sheet metal synths and twisted bass. The equally inventive ‘Mascara’ is an acid jam with infectious drums and squiggling 303 lines and ‘The Globe’ has a loose feel.

Our premiere ‘Island Earth’ gets wonky with its slapping hits, curious samples and bubbling drums.

These are five off-kilter club cuts that bring plenty of new ideas to the table. Check out ‘Island Earth’ below and grab a copy here.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
