In 1938, C.S. Lewis began writing a space trilogy.  That’s about all the information I needed to peak my intrigue enough to read the entire series.  This was 30 years before we landed on the moon, 70 years before the Phoenix Lander…and here he was, carving out a perspective of distant planet life based almost entirely on his imagination.  That’s what it seems like Antoni Maiovvi is doing here with Avrokosm.

Afternoon Youth, at first listen, comes across as a standard minimal house track, but Antoni adds an arsenal of sci-fi blips and warps into the mix, morphing it into an alien discotheque in a galaxy far away.  I can see Han Solo pounding down tequila shots at the Mos Eisley Cantina while Chewbacca and Admiral Ackbar sandwich a hot Bantha minx on the dance floor.

250 of these spherical wax slabs are available on Not Not Fun Records after the ‘buy’ link.  Happy trails.

The Details

Begun in Berlin but finished in Madrid, the record shares some of the sprawl and mysticism of certain unclassifiable Warriors Ov Gaia sides, a neo-tribal fantasy of rhythmic cave-painting, fires flickering in ancient caves under twin blood moons – the Avrokosm as microcosm for man the animal. Six processions bound for the same horizon. Mastered by Alek Stark at Fundamental Audio. Sci-fi landscape sleeve artwork by Annita Rivera; layout by Eric Lee. Edition of 250.

Price $12
