Derrick May’s titanic Transmat fronts their second release from Hiroshi Watanabe - someone you might know better as Kaito. Watanabe throws something of a curveball for Threshold of Eternity’s first track. As its title suggests, ‘The Leonodis Strings’ is a violin-led ditty that bares similarities to Hans Zimmer, John Williams and other film composers. Order is restored on the fuzzy Midwest techno of B-side ‘In To The Memory’.

Staff note from Jamie:
It's Hiroshi Watanabe's latest wax for Derrick May's totem of techno, Transmat. The Threshold of Eternity EP opens with 'The Leonids Strings', a heralding-in of filmscore-type violins and cellos -- techno rhythms without beats; no kick drum, no snare... it's all a bit Interstellar. Strings soar and soar, then build some more. On the flip, 'Into The Memories' brings some Detroit-style techno beats complete with mournful strings and searing syncopation. Excellent.
