8 Tracks To Bring On A Space Trip – Marco Shuttle


Italian born and London based, Marco Shuttle has seen his star steadily rise in recent years, with a series of deep, claustrophobic techno productions, alongside finely paced DJ sets that transition from hard jacking acid to gleaming chrome corridors of percussion. In honour of Shuttle's forthcoming set at the next Chapter 10 party, we thought we'd pick his brain on music to soundtrack space travel – we're assuming that, one day, we'll be able to afford a flight on the Virgin shuttle….

Watch Marco Shuttle in action at the Chapter 10 Warehouse Party on August 24th, alongside Tama Sumo, Randomer, Dan Beaumont and Charlie Porter – tickets available here

Ø (Mika Vainio) - Otava

3mins and 43secs after the Big Bang it sounded a bit like this.

  • Terje Rypdal (Odyssey) - Midnite Part 1

    If I took LSD while having a spacewalk I believe this would be the track playing through my spacesuit helmet speakers.

  • Terry Riley - Journey From The Death Of A Friend (1972)

    Commander Riley, the space-synth is about to leave planet Earth. Countdown started!

  • Sun Ra & His Arkestra - Space Is The Place

    As obvious and predictable this one might get, we cannot talk about outer space without including Sun Ra’s anthem “Space is the place” to this list!

  • Edward Artemiev - Station (Solaris Ost)

    Possibly my favourite movie about space. Very much so also for its amazing soundtrack.

  • Jeff Mills | Something In The Sky 5.3 [Sits 2010]

    In orbit around Jupiter with King Jeff the First (and last). Oh wait! I can see Detroit! I didn’t know Detroit was on Jupiter!

  • Marco Shuttle - "Marching On The Rings Of Saturn" (The Bunker New York 006)

    I know, I know. Very self-promotional but hey! Check the name of the artist and the title of the track, yo! Had to be included, sorry!

  • Starship Commander Woo Woo - Master Ship [Excerpt]

    Perfect happy ending track to our space mission.
