ASOK - A Mind Forever Voyaging [2LP]


Regular price £14.91 (£17.89 Inc VAT)

Released 13th May 2016

Liverpool artist Stu Robinson aka ASOK steps up to Creme Organization with a debut full length offering, A Mind Forever Voyaging, due out spring 2016. Featuring ten tracks of macho yet melodic, tender yet tense analogue house and techno, it is a continuation of the fine work the Scenery Records boss has done for labels like M>O>S and Mistress in the last few years. Something of a late starter, Robinson has fomented his own mystical, nostalgic, inventive analogue sound that makes you jack, as well as conjuring real emotions with his great knack for melody. This album was recorded live then edited down. "So if something doesn't sound good it either stays in or I re-record the whole thing," says Robinson, who used things like Maschine, tb303, analog RYTM, JX-8P, Microkorg, some plugins and "a shit load of old rave samples" to create his debut full length. All written at home over a period of a year or so, it proves the artist has plenty of ideas and more than enough skills to carry them off. All unified by a sense of emotion and kinked dance floor groove that has been picked up over the course of 25 years of living and breathing many different forms of dance music, it is an accomplished debut.
