I was totally blown away today when I first Heard Astro’s ‘Fracture Composition’. Astro is Hiroshi Hasegawa who was a member of 90’s racket warriors C.C.C.C. Astro is a fitting name for this project that he’s been doing for the last 10 years.

9/10 Ant Staff review, 17 September 2009
I was totally blown away today when I first Heard Astro’s ‘Fracture Composition’. Astro is Hiroshi Hasegawa who was a member of 90’s racket warriors C.C.C.C. Astro is a fitting name for this project that he’s been doing for the last 10 years. This man takes Japanoise/ power electronics to extreme levels that although are brutal and pulverizing manage to retain a cosmic/ futuristic sound. The title track (recorded live in Istanbul) for example has layer upon layer of synthesizer battling out, conjuring up an image of flying a spacecraft at hyper speed blowing up all sorts of space junk with some killer blue and green lasers. This stuff is hyper intense, like a huge eruption of mass organized chaos. How this man can still hear is a mystery to me. It’s like drinking ten pints of pure adrenalin. I mean this is just totally immense and if you’ll think you’ve been sucked into some kind of vortex by the end of the three long tracks. This truly is music that sounds like it comes from an alternate universe and has been sent to this world via some black/wormhole. I’d say that fans of Merzbow, KK Null and even the noisier end of Hecker’s frequency frenzies should check this out. A totally INSANE! Headfuck in the best possible way. Released on the Rapeart label which is based in Ecuador and the artwork is by Lasse Marhaug. For fans of extreme future music this is essential listening. It’s like some lost soundtrack to an epic science fiction space battle. The audience at the three shows the tracks are culled from must have had their minds melted. I’m lost for words and can feel a renewed Jap noise obsession coming on... Oh and I have read that this guy is married to a pornstar. When I consider that plus the fact the he has some wicked analogue synthesizers that he is highly proficient with... I am nothing.
