Astronautica premiers “Cruise” from her Alpha Pup Records debut full length Replay Last Night | Music News
The mighty XLR8R are in every corner and pocket of electronic music and have become a daily source of inspiration to the staff over here at SCV. Today, the organization has brought to light the premier of “Cruise”, the first of new material from new Alpha Pup Recording artist Astronautica. We were fortunate enough to interview this young producer and instrumentalist based out of Los Angeles about her drive, ambition and dedication to music and she is a very focused individual in terms of what she wants to achieve. Her drum breaks and bass lines are hard hitting rhythmically but the top sections are dreamy and elegant in the value of how they are layered, a beautiful combination that helps set her a part from many of her contemporaries.
Astronautica has forged an alliance with the Daddy Kev’s Alpha Pup imprint and has set a release date of February 26th for her first full length on the label Replay Last Night. With Daddy Kev on the mixing and mastering team for this project, Astronautica’s sound is more crisp and more pronounced. This new track “Cuise” contains that special glow, radiance and euphoria you could tell was slightly dormant in her previous material from the way it was mixed. The intricate layers of string instruments process around brightly lit mazes of emotional resonance and beautiful bursting bass swells. Tightly placed analog driven drum work and a sophistication in textural synth based composition rise to the surface in perfect view and shine with a meditative purpose that is already becoming Astronautica’s “sound”.
