This is a pretty personal two-part single;
"Galaxy Spots" is a song made for someone really special - the kind of person that enters your world and gives you the feeling that no matter what happens, the universe loves you.
"The Token Man" is for someone who feels like they're the token- always left second seat to the people who go past them without noticing but still humble enough to keep their ethics and morale, and be understanding about the way the world unfolds.
The Finnish artist Blamstrain has been named an up-and-coming force in the local underground scene of Helsinki for a number of years. Well respected among his artist peers, his endearing ability to nonchalantly cross genres and try out new things has also caused debate among his listeners, wondering where he will go next. His trademark sound is very immersive; analog, warm, with a high concentration on ambience and space. Praised by The Wire, XLR8R, Mary Anne Hobbs (plus other Radio 1 DJs) and a favorite of many well-established artists, the Finn has a lot of diverse material to offer to a wide range of listeners.
On this single (taken from the forthcoming album "The Galaxy") Blamstrain takes us on an electronica space travel trip very reminiscent of the heyday of Future Sound of London. "Galaxy Spots" is a full-blown space journey from our planet earth to the galaxies above and beyond - starting from the bass-heavy beat and choir arrangement of the moody beginning as the listener is taken into the orbit and building up to a gorgeous synthful peak, releasing the heavy tension built in the song. It is a very special first release for Erotus, and any fans of Blamstrain's debut Ensi should watch (and listen) out closely.
