Electronic artist Cygnus grace the also quite electronic label CPU with his presence on 'Tesseracter', his first musical release since 2012, when CPU launched with his debut record 'Newmark Phase'. Here, we get tracks that are influenced by all that wonderful nerd shit: there's a science fiction bent to these melodies and Cygnus claims to be influenced by "video game soundscapes" on it.

Cygnus returns with a second 12" instalment for the prolific CPU label. 'Tesseracter' and the accomapanying three tracks play like a aural love letter to the sound of electro in all it's myriad forms. Crisp 808 beats, intelligently sequenced melodies and warped, blurrzed out pads ensure a solid music listening experince. Opener 'Tesseract' showcases electro's minimalist approach with a spacious, cosmic blend that, when coupled with an almost Egyptian Lover style vocal feels lush and a little sassy if I may say so myself. 'Strange Hyper' utilizes a similar pallette thus it acts as an atmospheric companion piece, no more or less pleasurable than the opener. Kinda brings to mind DMX Krew with a twinge of acid in there for good measure. Flip it and the b-side titles tell you everything you need to know. 'Technologic' and 'Video Games' are on an old school electro tip, bringing to mind a break dance party with Kraftwerk sipping champagne whilst watching Afrika B slay the compitition on the wheels of steel whilst simultaniously achieving the highest score imaginable on Metal Slug for the Neo-Geo. I know the timescale is all wrong but you get the idea.
