Human Space Machine proves a solid sonic point with ‘Searching’, a gloomy four-old of effective yet deeply heady pieces of club music released on Amsterdam's luminous label De Lichting.
Following his well-received EP Cycle, Human Space Machine pulls into shadowy territories on Searching. As the title implies the collection of tracks resembles a sound the Dutch producer and co-founder of De Lichting has been gravitating towards in recent times. Darker, complex, yet sleek and straight to the dancefloor.
What started off as a group of friends in art school with a shared enthusiasm and nerdy tendency for music production and cooperation, developed into a fusion of
three underground labels hailing from Amsterdam in 2020. The imprint De Lichting, brought together Yield Records, Native Response, and Working Titles, which resulted in a high-grade source for ambient, breakbeat, house, and of course hi-fidelity techno.
Picking up on the latter is Human Space Machine, especially with our premiere pick ‘SP4C3’. With minimalistic techno-ey drums and a dash of psy-influences, the A2 closer is tailored for those misty late nights that seamlessly transition into dawn. Simple to follow yet challenging in all its parts, Human Space Machine finds the sweet spot between dancefloor mechanics and brain workout.
