Zeta Reticula

EP 6

For many people, Zeta Reticula is and always has been Umek’s most interesting project. Focusing on pitch black dub techno and nocturnal electro, it yielded a series of seminal EPs on Billy Nasty’s Electrix label at the start of the '00s. The good news is that Zeta Reticula is back and it hasn’t changed much. Both 'Reticulum' and 'Solar Analogs' are post-apocalyptic 808 cuts. While the epic synths of ‘Circumstellar Debris Disk' see him explore a slightly different approach, the pulsing 'Rotating Protostellar Cloud' demonstrates that it’s only a temporary diversion.
