about

Detroit’s Füxa makes a triumphant return to the label with a very special release, teaming up with the Neil Mackay, of the then newly refromed Loop. A mini-LP of further explorations to seek out a psychedelic tinged cosmos, with guitar and instrumental rock now joined by the tripped out kick of the dance floor for a perfect meeting of mind and (purple) hearts.

The return of Loop in 2013 after over 20 years since their disappearance was naturally greeted with much interest and excitement. The success of their curation for All Tomorrow’s Parties final weekender and subsequent world tour was soon lost when the band appeared to disband as quickly as it returned.

Teaming up with the band’s former bassist and groove merchant Neil Mackay seems a natural and perfect direction for Füxa’s Randall Neimann and sure enough together they collaborate as if old masters.

From the space-funk anthem of opening Apollo Soyuz it is clear we are in for some ride. Randall returns to the microphone, extolling a (hippy) shakedown while underpinned by Neil’s mothership bass, with ethereal keys overlaid - the trip is up and running.

This is soon followed by the kosmiche groove that of Comerzreggae. Delicate and meditating, taking you up and beyond. Space Junk and side closer, Testz 1 allow you to simply let go - outer orbit has been achieved - layers and layers of sound, keys arpeggio’d to the stars and beyond.

The groove returns for Füxa Gate, this time a primal loop extolling a higher awareness, that is then carried on with Nerdz and it’s oft-kilter drums and rolling bass and fuzz distortion. Things begin to prepare for a return to Earth with the gentle keys of Progress M34 and finally the pyschedelic mantra of Korg Dub, creating the question, has all been lost or saved and minds blown, do we even care...just let go? A sonic match, truly made for the heavens.
