Born in Chicago but raised in Detroit, The Living Legend Alton Miller joins Roots Underground for his eighth vinyl release, and he does it in the usual stylish way that has always distinguished him in his nearly 30-years career.
From the Future is an EP composed of 3 tracks denoted by arrangements decidedly more electronic than its latest productions. It opens with Crossing (A), an irresistible club tool of over 9 minutes with a 'deep & techy' atmosphere and poisonous breaks that leads us on a warm and hypnotic trip immediately showing us the most dancefloor and synthetic side of this prolific Afro-american producer.
The B Side starts with The World needs Love (B1). Spiritual house music, ethereal keyboards, impending arpeggios and a vocal sample that adds a certain emotion to the track, in addition to naming it: 8 minutes of pure Miller’s style.
Brooklyn (B2) closes the B side with its rhythm full of latin percussions and sounds that remind to early NYC house music, without being nostalgic and making that same feeling relevant to the current scene.
The graphic design of this EP is consistent with the new style of the label, opened with Lorenzo Morresi's EP (RU007V), and this time it features the suggestive Greenstone (Chrolastrolite) of the State of Michigan.

Produced entirely by MF DOOM - Following the success of two collaborative releases (EMC “The Show”/2008 and Ace & Edo G “Arts & Entertainment” /2009), Masta Ace joins forces with the metal faced MF Doom for Son of Yvonne, a highly personal concept album that celebrates the life and legacy of Ace’s recently departed Mother. Like his 2004 landmark Disposable Arts, Son of Yvonne is meticulously constructed with stories, settings, and characters that resonate with flesh and bone humanity. Interstitial vignettes provide a thematic backbone to the experience, and each track complements and completes the previous to form a narrative whole: a sometimes visceral, sometimes nostalgic slice of Ace’s young life in Brownsville, Brooklyn.Entirely underscored by MF Doom’s iconic Special Herbs instrumentals, Son of Yvonne features the Juice Crew general Big Daddy Kane, new comers Pav Bundy (The Bundies), Reggie B and even MF Doom on the mic. It’s Masta Ace’s no frills flow, however, that looms largest above the dusty samples and digger loops that define Doom’s production. Ace’s photo-realistic rhymes about stick-up kids, spraycan artists and wack emcees add extra gravity to his already celebrated reputation as “truly an under-appreciated rap veteran andunderground luminary” (Allmusic Guide). Like Eminem recalls in his 2008 autobiography The Way I Am, “Masta Ace had amazing storytelling skills. His thoughts were so vivid.”

"For us, the Start Taking Note is a marvelous Frankenstein of sonic fragments. Foley, samples, ethnic instruments and late night synth jam sessions put together over solid UK Grime Influenced beats, bring together a sound of multiple generations of music and musicians together, to create this unique adrenaline shot.
We always strived to distinguish ourselves from the generic sound of the club scene, and we consider EP to be the foundation of our audio/visual identity.
Belgrade's urban underground music scene and the urban graffiti art is something that brought us all together, and will always stay a purest form of inspiration.
We also very grateful for Killa P's guest appearance on the EP title track. His career, tunes and artist he worked with amongst the core influences of our sound."

Marking the journey's end, RQZ sends us deeper into the unknown with his take on Asael's First Floor. A deep and transcendental groover inspired by the 90's movie The 13th floor.

Peter Michael Hamel emerged from the 70s Krautrock scene dreaming of “the blue flower growing between the milestones on the road to a future world-music”. A truly visionary artist who worked and studied with John Cage, Morton Feldman and Terry Riley, his 1980 Colours of Time LP - an epic, sprawling, 22-minute saga - was hailed by The Guardian’s Rob Fitzpatrick as “an absolute masterpiece of skull-bursting, synth-led ambient minimalism”. Thirty six years on, Astral Industries reinterpret Hamel's original vision with remixes from two contemporary heavyweights - Wolfgang Voigt and Rod Modell (aka Deepchord). Each expansive interpretation invites you to step outside of reality and into an alternative imagination of Hamel's future world, spiralling into the colours and slowly out of time itself. Original artwork by Theo Ellsworth and a massive thanks to Peter Michael Hamel & Eckart Rahn.
