So, this damn Holo Vermin infestation is driving away the visitors from your space station, while the pest control team from Alpha Centauri prefers to drink Lunar Love Lemonade at the observation deck canteena, instead of getting on top of the problem. Just when you convinced yourself to bite the bullet and ask the mercenary’s guild for help (at least they have cyborgs), a massive wormhole opens just half a light year away – spitting out a blast from the past: a mini-album by Photophob, featuring 7 acid heavy drill’n’bass IDM obscurities, firing its broken beats with deadly precision at everything that moves.

More than a decade after my „Music for Spaceports LP“ (Earstroke Records, 2005) and "Skaphander Skanks" (laridae, 2008), i proudly present the official follow up:

„Galactic Vermin“ brings you a wild and nostalgic mixture of IDM / Acid / Drill’n’Bass ... or, as i tend to label it nowadays „Escapist Braintronica with occasional outbursts of Acid Drillbreaks and Euphoric Dumbcore“.

If you liked my netlabel output from the mid 2000’s, this is for you.
