Patrick Pulsinger + DJ Glow: Radio Earth

Cheap Records' Patrick Pulsinger and Trust founder DJ Glow join forces for the steaming three-tracker Radio Earth. Opener “Floorwave” wastes no time getting started, with twitching synth chatter and a pounding bass drum pulse combining to stoke an electro-techno flame-thrower, and second-at-bat “Plowing the Dark” admirably cuts to the chase too with its pummeling beat, grinding bass throb, and jittery synth flourishes. The towering colossus “Television Is Reality” gets the flip side all to itself, all the better to allow its immense electro slam and viperous ambiance to transmit clearly from their distant solar system origins.
