Chicagoan duo Big Mike T and Kenny Gino have used many monikers over the years - Ghetto Godfathers, Le Soul Mediques, Black Ops, Cozmic Jazzz Futurist - but it's been a long time since they wheeled out the Dark Matrix alias. In fact, Gravity Wave is the long-serving duo's first release under the pseudonym since 2002. It sees them paying tribute to the early days of Detroit electronic music, effortlessly joining the dots between futurist techno and outer space electro. Of course, you'll hear other influences across the album, too - Dutch electro, Italo-disco and slightly harder European takes on techno can all be heard within the machine beats and melodies - but it's their love of the Motor City that shines through.
