Boomkat Product Review:
Vagon Brei aka Victor Ramos follows his 'Asturias Tierra De Leyendas' album for Legowelt's boutique Strange Life label with this mini synth odyssey for Further Records - the same cats who dropped the excellent Schnitzler and Ekoplekz LPs this week. Like his radio shows on The Hague's Intergalactic FM, 'Destiny' is indebted to all manner of vintage synth tropes, coalesced as a conceptual album about "a doomed space mission". They range from isolated, beatless lost-in-space moments to pulsing Techno and lo-fi downbeat electro cuts reminding of the Niggas With Guitars LP on Digitalis. It's a charming little trip, and coupled with the naif, screen-printed artwork from Danny Wolfers (aka Legowelt) makes a tidy package.
