Space based conceptual label Titan’s Halo Records announces the release of its third reference, a one track EP called «Alpha Beta Gamma» from the duo Brain Machine. Alpha Beta Gamma is a 17 minute trip separated into three parts, one for each letter. “Alpha” explores a beatless dreamscape, voluptuous and organic pads drift alongside motorik arpeggios and gliding tones in a kind of seventies krautish ambience. “Beta” slowly whirs the cosmic cogs into motion with a heavy arpeggiated bass and some loose percussion, following in the path of Moroder’s eighties cosmic disco. Finally, “Gamma” turns the track into a dark and psychedelic odyssey that reminds us of the soundtracks of Dario Argento and more precisely, the band Goblin. The German band Von Spar have approached the remix making an instrumental and lysergic version of «Alpha Beta Gamma». For the second remix, Swedish producer Johan Agebjörn has sent the original track to a secret beach located on a planet somewhere around Saturn through a balearic ambient-house approach. The complete artwork of the record has been handled by Spanish designer Pablo Sanz, where he intends to represent the flyby of a spaceship over the human colony of Titan. The mastering of all tracks belongs to Xergio Córdoba, engineer of Eternal Midnight Studios.
