Monokeros - Happy Orbiting (JMD027)

Happy Orbiting is a spaceship built from drum loops and gnarly synthesizers, with a bit of inspiration from Aphex Twin and Tycho. Apart from their space-travelling qualities, these three songs share another theme: the joy and obsession of repetition.

"For me, repetition in music doesn't mean standing still, it's just another way of moving forward", says Monokeros. "I find loops strangely addictive. Once I've made one, I can play it over and over until I wear it out. Then after a few moments I feel compelled to press play again."

Happy Orbiting was mastered by Gustaf Lundh. Thank you Gustaf!
