Twilight ambient, breakbeat, and choral synths from the year 5781.
Watch next: 20 years of Planet Mu in 10 minutes
Designed as the soundtrack to an imaginary anime, Neon Genesis: Soul Into Matter² takes inspiration from both Nineties manga and anime, and Jewish mysticism and stories.
Across the LP’s 14 tracks Rix-Martin incorporates elements of ambient, choral synths, breakbeat, and Aramaic chanting.
Neon Genesis: Soul Into Matter² is accompanied by the following statement:
“In the year 5781 humanity is ever closer to becoming a singular consciousness. A team of humans are forming an android, Adam Kadmon (CODENAME: UNIT KADMON). First, humans have to gain higher consciousness guided by the Sefirot.”
It follows Planet Mu’s release of Speaker Music’s Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry – one of our favourite albums of 2020.
