Boomkat Product Review:
Planet Mu's armour-plated dubstep ensemble follow their seminal first LP with an addendum of sorts, collating rarities and unreleased cuts produced around those album sessions. 'Cloud Seed' is built from that same sort of controlled dancefloor aggression and appreciation of darker sci-fi moods and aesthetics, blending stunning moments of cinematic dystopia like 'Remains Of The Day' and 'Shinju Bridge' with their reworks of neo-classical compositions from John Richards and Gabriel Prokofiev released on the Non-Classical series. There's a healthy amount of vocal tracks too, from the slo-mo robo-daggering riddim set for Warrior Queens vocal on 'Take Time Out' to scuzzy builds for Jest 'Disposition' and sweetened female vocals from Anneka on 'Heart Space', plus the epic remix of 'Killing Floor' subtitled 'MAH Mix' and the haunting version of Distance's 'Fallen'. Unfortunately the duo are for all intents and purposes disbanded right now, but during this period they achieved a gloriously cinematic sound that defined a darkly maudlin style which many tried, but few accomplished so well. Major respect where it's due.
