Starkey has confirmed the December 6 release of a new Civil Music EP. Featuring five freshly-pressed tracks and six remixes, Space Traitor Vol. 1 is the latest chapter in the producer’s “Starkbot Beats” story, a sci-fi affair that was sparked on Werk Discs’ Grim FM compilation.
â€œI wanted Space Traitor to be a compliment to the Ear Drums and Black Holes album, which I dropped earlier this year on Planet Mu,” Starkey said in a press release. “This for me is a bit more raw and more immediate…There’s still a lot of depth to the production, but it’s more about the raw beat and energy, and less about composing epic tracks that have layer upon layer of information. I suppose it’s a bit more grime influenced, or in particular 8-bar. Of course I can’t keep things too simple, but I guess it’s my attempt at trying to capture moments of inspiration.”
You can sample those moments after the jump. A second Space Traitor volume is expected in early 2011.
