Ras G, the cosmic LA beat legend is back with an experimental, dynamic and excellent new release with The Afrikan Space Program titled Stargate Music. An album which is an astral ode to women, Ras G describes it as “a record that I livicated to the Womb-man…to the Vagina, The Stargate from which beings emanate life on this planet. I gathered these sound pieces and presented it as a reflection of the life cycle of beings on this planet.”
With his usual quirky and left-field electronic arrangements, Ras G delves deeper into cosmic territory with futuristic beats that capture the essence of sonic spirituality. Tracks such as “Intimate Reconnections 1st Invite (Ankh)” use subtle synths and electronic glitches to produce a mind-bending sonic trip. “The Great Return (racing seed) / Primordial Water Formations 2” is a rhythmic, beat-heavy 6-minute stunner that grows into this brilliant cacophony that explodes and ends the album perfectly. This album is a true testament to Ras G’s versatility as an artist, and further highlights the dominance of experimental electronic music coming out of Los Angeles.
