Icarus Bèta with brand new solo work by The Necks drummer Tony Buck, his first solo album in 15 years. The Elks are an experimental German quartet, this track is a live registration from their set at the Konfrontationen Festival in
Nickelsdorf, Austria. Mirrors and Assassins is taken from Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe's latest album, Two Orb Reel. This is themed around a soundtrack concept based on African science-fiction, with each track title being lifted from science fiction works set in Africa. The music brilliantly reflects the science fiction theme by catapulting the listener into a trip style journey through alien landscapes built from Roberts extensive modular synthesis studio set up.
