8 TRACKS: THAT INSPIRED MOTHER OF MARS WITH VITO & DRUZZI

Ahead of their new 12" on Ransom Note Records, the NYC duo share some of the music that's been inspiring them, from Laurie Spiegel and Silver Apples to Eliane Radigue and This Heat.

The next 12" on Ransom Note Records comes courtesy of Vito & Druzzi, formerly the tight-as-fuck rhythm section in '00s disco-punk pioneers The Rapture. Seed 2 Sky is the NYC duo's first release under their new Mother of Mars alias, and finds them fusing live krautrock drums with pulsating synth loops over a pair of ten-minute kosmische epics.

Vito & Druzzi have put together this excellent 8 Tracks playlist of long-term loves, touchstones, obsessions and influences. From Laurie Spiegel and Silver Apples to Eliane Radigue and This Heat, dig in below.


Seed 2 Sky is out 17th November on Ransom Note Records. Pre-order it here.

THIS HEAT - HEALTH AND EFFICIENCY

This album has been a touchstone for me since I first heard it 20 years ago. I'm listening to it again as I'm writing this and it still sounds as fresh and timeless as ever. I always hear something new and come away inspired. Also Charles Hayward is one of my all time favourite drummers and a huge influence.
