Mono Junk ‎| FP-008 (12") [FP008]


Mono Junk ‎| FP-008
Label: Forbidden Planet ‎– FP008
Format: Vinyl, 12", 33 ⅓ RPM
Released| 15 May 2015

Given their obsession with the analogue-rich, stargazing sound of early '90s intelligent techno, it seems fitting that the latest Forbidden Planet release sees the return of Mono Junk, a producer whose career began with a series of impressive 12" singles 20-odd years ago. Predictably, the veteran producer is on fine form, delivering cuts bristling with yearning, sci-fi tinged melodies, restless arpeggios, far-sighted electronics and raw, stripped-back drum machine rhythms. While much of the EP is bold, melodious and intoxicating (see "Prince of the Night", for starters), Mono Junk also indulges his rarely seen dub techno influences on "Channel B (Remix)", before reaching for the stars with the Legowelt-esque synth beauty of "Maalisku".
