The Furthur Electronix label unearths four astonishingly killer vintage tracks of tribal breakbeat mutations from Tusken Raiders, a short-lived alias from Mike Paradinas that ran between 1995 and 1999.
While he was already deeply exploring the outer edge of jungle and UK hardcore, the Tusken Raiders alias saw Mike Paradinas directing us through a vortex towards an alien world of desert landscapes where the only currency was well-rinsed hardcore and jungle 12"s. The soundtrack to this nightmarish vision stepped even further out into the voids of percussive pressure and hypnotic electronics and at times the music sounded like moments of AFX's Analogue Bubblebath 4 being sampled by Muslimgauze for one of his experiments with skull crushing breakbeats.
Despite being beamed in from the distant past, these newly unearthed 1994 Tusken Raiders trax resonate with a truly frantic spirit and energy, one that when placed alongside the current wave of John T. Gast and Nkisi 12s and the recent splattering of Dom & Roland Dubs From The Dungeons, ensures that the Inchstar Static EP is not only one of the most future-proof/future-shock 12s you are ever gonna need, but also a vital weapon to be carried in the bag at all times while scanning the ever-growing digital shelves of the cyberpunk desert that is the hardcore continuum.

small hints of early mu-ziq: cavalier, intrepid, thematic tango n'vectiff here on tricolore. its mostly frost jockeyed full sunken tusken kid bantha spatula: honed-in mean-@ss beast-shit. "A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die." Syd Viscous

This album adds more depth to the significant canon of Analogical Force, positioning itself convincingly as a late '10's Warp or Rephlex Records. Pleasant progressive groove based electronics. Egg Wizard

Astonishingly good electronic tunes for a tenner and for a good cause. As well as titans 808 State, Autechre, Plaid, B12, etc... the lesser known artists shine. Get and enjoy! Played Quandary Wand at my wedding after Halcyon by Orbital. :) Egg Wizard
