Sascha Freihals The Pad-Sound and Percussion/Hihat-Sounds from 1:24 to the end of "Absolute Vacuum Tantrum". Love this! Favorite track: Absolute Vacuum Tantrum (She's Taking It So Personally...).

Sylnox A worthy successor to the Music for Spaceports LP. It's been years since I discovered these lovely albums and I've still never heard anything quite like them. Love the little comics that go with the songs on this one too. Great stuff! Favorite track: A Very Subjective Emotional State (Excitement).

Christoph Franzen Nobody ever created such a self-contained, entertaining and mind-binding universe like this. Compliments to the mind that put this into existance!

»Skaphander Skanks« brings you 13 retro Science-Fiction influenced fast-forward Drill 'n bass absurdities, full of cheesy overdone pathos and hyperactive breakbeats, puckishly scattered to the four cosmic winds. If you liked Photophob's "Music for Spaceports" releases, this is for you!

So, turn on your autopilot, release the safety of your Hyades Laser Blaster and get ready for take-off! There are galaxies to be discovered, spaceports to be descended on and exotic alien beauties waiting to be worshipped...

You'll find a PDF booklet in the download version, including individual found footage artwork for each track.
