Premiere: Nicky Rosa – Solar Flare
Netsphere is a new Colombian label run by DJ/producer Astronomical Telegram and music journalist Mauricio Atencia. Born from a common love of anime, the idea behind the label is "to represent an imaginary world composed of cyborgs, robots and infinite mega structures and levels that will be connected through different musical releases, seeking to create a world order that can satisfy the people's desires, encompassing electronic music in general."
The first release on Netsphere comes from Nicky Rosa, who hails from Mazamet in the south of France. His new EP Solaris contains seven tracks of off-kilter techno that foreground texture and unexpected melodies. 'Solar Flare' conjures up an ominous atmosphere with twinkling synths and eerie pitch-bends, and you can listen to it below:
Solaris is out 14th May via Netsphere.
