Perseus Traxx is no stranger to the legion of underground warriors who place quality above quantity. He has released on Future Flash, Bunker, M>O>S, BOE Recordings, Photic Fields, Skylax, Chiwax, BoomChik, Snuff Trax, Use of Weapons, Crimes Of The Future as well as being one half of Nite Vision with the man behind Mantra/Myriadd. Eighteen months after he brought his first EP to the label, dedicated to four of the nine Muses of ancient Greece, Flight Recorder now brings to you the second instalment dedicated to four of the remaining five Muses, on "Goddesses Of Inspiration II".
The Muses are the nine Goddesses who promote literature, science and the arts; the personifications of inspiration. Though only named and assigned characteristics as recently as the Roman era, they were revered by the ancient Greeks, who documented them as having been recruited by the Egyptian God Osiris as he passed through Ethiopia prior to embarking on a tour of Asia and Europe to teach the arts of cultivation to mankind.
The feel is the same as before with jagged cutting tones jammed live then edited down. Heavy synths and scattered drums perform an ode characterising the appropriate Muses, as tangled wires and a pair of hands wrench the overload of inspiration they give from basic machines. Once again Perseus' release on Flight Recorder is a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments, that sometimes feel as cold and edgy, as they do warm and carefree.
