London electronic artists The Egg have returned with their fifth studio album, ‘Galactic Love Machine’. Produced and co-written with Greg Hunter (known for his work with The Orb, Az-Ra, ad Dubsahara), it’s a trip-tastic psychedelic aural feast.
‘Galactic Love Machine’ features the keyboard magic of Ulrich Schnauss, a German electronic musician and producer now based in London. Schnauss keeps the listener on their toes with his unusual and often unexpected sounds, beats and dub-step vibed rhythms.
The band include Pink Floyd and New Order among their inspirations, and the former’s taste for experimentation is a clear influence on The Egg. There’s a funky element to their sound as well, so it should come as no surprise that they also credit George Clinton as being a significant force on their music.
The Egg are well known on the UK festival circuit and club scene, and have seen success with ‘Walking Away’ (Tocadisco Remix), as well as the David Guetta bootleg which came after it. The Egg have played all around the world, including Europe, Australia, and Brazil, as well as in the US along jam bands from that country such as Lotus, and Disco Biscuits, at New York City’s Nokia Theatre.
The Egg will launch the 14 track ‘Galactic Love Machine’ at London’s Underbelly, on Tuesday 15 May. See here for further information.
You can also see The Egg at The Little People’s Midsummer Party By The River 22-24 June, Curious Yellow 29 June-2 July, Flovibe on 12 August, and Audio Farm/One Tribe on August 30.
