Space Ghost Unveils Album of Shimmering Deep House “Created to Heal and Energize”
'Dance Planet' LP is scheduled for September 17 release.
Wachspress, an Oakland, California native, has always represented a beacon of shimmering house, particularly on his previous Endless Light and Aquarium Nightclub albums for Tartelet and on his swathes of self-released music. We’re told that Dance Planet “carries a greater responsibility to spread spiritual affirmations” than his earlier work because the dancefloor community is “emerging from a mentally-taxing recess.” You can expect 10 tracks of chill-out breaks, uplifting deep house, and low slung R&B that are “pointedly created to heal and energize.”
“On this record, I had a lot of different ideas forming and melding into one, from house, downtempo, and hip-hop to old video game soundtracks,” says Wachspress. “During the pandemic, I began discovering the music of both Soichi Terada and Toyin Agbetu. I really wanted to make an uplifting record with all sorts of sounds, some clear dance tracks, and some a bit slower and more trippy.”
The album is available in a limited-edition bundle with a bonus 7″ featuring “Deep” and “Tuff World.”
