Cosmic synth music requires regular transfusions of reverse strategies, weird ideas, and bad blood to stay mutating, and alive. And while theres no shortage of projects engaged in this pursuit, the life/art arc of Austrias Cruise Family cleaves closest to the slipstream we identify with. His early tapes were bubbling fountains of faded trance textures, like a rave reimagining of Monopoly Child Star Searchers celestial cassette mysticisms, but Were In Heaven extrapolates that DNA into a radically more dynamic model. The sidelong A side, Were In Heaven, coasts on a carpet of lush galactic synthesizer bliss and metronomic 909 pulses, like someone cross-mixing the best of Softwares Electronic Universe over a slowed-down Model 500 instrumental loop. The B is split into two pieces, the paranoid warehouse techno skeleton, Be Part Of It, and Gone By Dawn, which sequences floating new age fractals over a hollowed-out acid handclap beat, like the spectral shell of some classic sunrise anthem. The fidelity and textural craft of these cuts are distinct to anything else in the Cruise Family tree, and the best embodiment of his unique matrix of influences.
