EP OUT NOW:: Power Surge / The World Needs You


There was no one left. No one with the guts to try. No one who dared to step up.

Initial readouts suggested the chance of A-0U33 reaching the earth was only 1 out of 200, but who could be sure? Even with the likelihood being at just half a percent, never before had the specter of a cataclysmic, world destroying event ever been so high.

The chance of coming back alive from this mission was just as slim. With no other volunteers and all of earth’s champions used up, there was just one sobering statement that gave motivation to earth’s last hero, “THE WORLD NEEDS YOU”. 

The launch sequence was smooth, correct trajectory achieved and propulsion rates were at optimum levels for the whole journey; including during orbit entry. So far, it would seem, everyone on earth was holding their breath for nothing.

“20, 19, 18, 17…” the docking sequence had commenced and earth’s last hero prepared himself to enter the unknown. “3, 2, 1…” the airlocks opened and the critical part of the mission finally began.
Pushing through the dark corridors, his torchlight fell upon the generator. Opening the metal box, mission control began crackling instructions through his headpiece.

19 hours of darkness with no break and no end in sight. Wires cut and resoldered, digital schematics realigned and reset. Now is the critical time for a cool head, sure hands to give hope to those who need it.

Suddenly, everything shook. Mission control fell silent. Hearts on earth pounded. Our hero cried out, “POWER SURGE!”

Hitting Beatport for pre-release on June 10 and other online stores on June 24 is my next record, 'Power Surge'.

Containing the two original tracks 'Power Surge' and 'The World Needs You', these numbers of pure breaks goodness were a joy to make and came from a period of sustained creativity over the Australian summer holidays. 

I feel very fortunate for this EP to be coming out on Box Set Records from Perth after being spotted by the one and only Phase Animator. The label has previously put out great records by Roboteknic, Kostas G and many more. 

As an aside, the artwork was also designed by yours truly and is a reworking of a photo I took of a power box in Shanghai thinking at the time it may make a good record cover! You can see the original photo I took below as well as the official artwork underneath.

Previews are coming very soon so I'll keep you posted!
