- Alien by Larry Heard
1 review. Write a review for us »
Here's the first ever full vinyl issue of Larry "Mr Fingers" Heard's 1996 sci-fi themed album 'Alien', so it's trailblazing proto-deep house business which is in some respects business as usual but it's on much more of a cosmic tip this time round. Lots of big yawning drone melodies and spaced out arpeggios coupled with squelchy bloops and dainty fast-paced tinkles and laser-gun squeaks.
Opener 'Faint Object Detection' has a synth line that reminds me of John Carpenter's 'Halloween' theme, and the weird muffled loops on 'DNA-RNA' have an almost Joe Meek-ish alien-ness to them, but it's always tempered by soft melodic touches and coolly grooving house beats. If you like your old-school house laid back, cosmic and melodic, this will tickle you where it feels nice.
