////////////////// THIS MIND IS A MATRIX OF ALL PORTS \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
For anyone expecting Mindport to be an EP filled with drone or ambient pieces, the opener track will set you straight. Named after China's lunar orbiter 3, Chang'e (pronounced as Chang Er) is also the Moon goddess in Chinese mythology. Driven by ethnic drum beats infused with electronic textures, it features an assortment of samples taken from CNSA Mission Control and lunar narratives. The result is an intriguing style of world electronica with hints of techno.
Side B, 'Junction' is inspired by the insistent beeps of the traffic light in Hong Kong. It starts off with a laid-back pace before taking speed and twisting its way into a piece of frantic footwork rhythm.

The two sides to producer Steve White’s music—futurism and soulfulness—sit more comfortably together than ever before on his latest album as Steve Spacek, which balances boundary-testing sonics with earnest, heart-on-sleeve lyrics. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 11, 2018
