Alien Mode EP

Hessle Audio
Pearson Sound’s first release on Hessle Audio in five years lands in the shape of the three-track ‘Alien Mode’ EP. The warehouse-ready UK techno of its title-track sets a weapons-grade breakbeat against a warped Stranger Things sample that repeats “I feel like I’m losing my mind / You are not losing your mind” — until you actually feel like you have lost your mind. ‘Cobwebs’ flips a sample from Nigerian musician Adewale Ayuba into a 155bpm roller, before ‘Everything Is Inside Out’ closes the EP with a slightly more contemplative synth-led affair. At its peak, the EP presents music that makes you mourn for the time when dancefloors were open, to wave your arms around in wild abandon.
