Omega EP

A 5 track techno ep (28m 34s) — released July 29th 2016 on Old Habits

Following on from Wax Stag's acclaimed 2015 album II*, Old Habits return with a new split 12" featuring 5 tracks from some of the finest underground electronic talent Melbourne has to offer.

Side A features 3 tracks from Travancore, consisting of Andy Donnelly, Leo Fieldgrass & Ed Coogan, who together perform live improvised electronic jams using only analogue hardware. These tracks were recorded during a session 2014 and finally see the light of day on vinyl after a tape only release on DIY label Hidden Waves. The opener DCF evokes memories of classic era Mr Fingers, while Morely Mans takes things in a more abrasive direction before finishing with Obsolete, more of a straight up techno banger, albeit more Late Junction than Essential Mix.

All three members have been putting out music under various guises stretching back 15+ years, perhaps most notably Red Bull Music Academy recruit Andy Donnelly who, under his Kloke alias, has released music on labels such as Styles Upon Styles, Sub Squared and Entrada.

Flip for 2 tracks by Rings Around Saturn aka Rory McPike, where the vibe descends deep into immersive soundscapes and calming ambient electronics. With a host of releases under his belt across various aliases including Dan White (FACT Mag Australian artists to watch in 2015) and 2200 on labels including Butter Sessions, Analogue Attic, Cult Trip, Forbidden Planet, Brokntoys, Normals Welcome and his own Rhythm Works imprint, 2016 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for Rory.

Full albums from both Rings Around Saturn and Travancore to follow later in the summer (digital only). One time pressing, strictly limited to 300 copies.
