One of the better albums I’ve heard in recent months is Galaxy of Nowhere from Mondkopf. Part of the Fluokids family, Mondkopf is a 23 year-oldToulouse-born Parisian-based producer whose sound is a mix of the big beat drops of Modeselektor with the emotional synths of M83/Apparat with the electronic melodies of Nosaj Thing. He has remixed the likes of The Golden Filter, The Teenagers, and most recently, Caribou. Galaxy of Nowhere is the most engaging thoroughbred electronic album I’ve heard so far this year.
Here’s an exclusive cut which doesn’t appear on the album as well as ‘Libera Me’, a Galaxy of Nowhere standout. [Buy from Rough Trade | Amazon | eMusic]
