As we previously reported, Philadelphia producer Starkey will release his first project on Ninja Tune, Open the Pod Bay Doors, later this month. The six-track EP is an expectedly futuristic and synth-heavy affair, though it also finds Starkey dipping into more melodic sounds. You can find out exactly what I’m talking about here via a nearly seven-minute preview of the Pod Bay Doors, which also features a whole lot of wobblin’. What’s most impressive, though, is his foray into ambient-leaning material toward the end. Perhaps this is a new direction for Starkey.
Stream the preview below. The EP drops Oct. 31.
