Jealo Robert Henke – Lumière III

Galaxian comfortably occupies a space outside of the easily definable genres of today. A sound as equally varied as it is evocative, often hard to classify and pigeon hole but never less than absorbing. He’s never an artist to become stagnant or be confined within obvious conventions.

Dousing the listener in dramatic, organic textures before sweeping them into a pulsating blaze of machine-gun percussion. Subtle passages and tender melodies make way for a maelstrom of intricate drum programming and soaring melodies erupt from a wave of psychedelic ambiences.

Favouring an unorthodox, idiosyncratic style, releases on labels including Return to Disorder, Natural Sciences, LowerParts, Foul-Up, LKT, Shipwrec with DJ Stingray are distinctive and remarkably vital.

A provocative, subversive aesthetic steeped in philosophical and anarchistic attitude further submerge the listener in Galaxian’s visions and ethos. Appearing in trademark helmet and mask evoking imagery of militant resistance, revolt and liberation, as if in preparation for an impending disintegration of civilisation. Searing live performances command attention.

2017 was a year that bolstered Galaxian’s growing reputation and introduced his sound to a broader audience. Playing throughout Europe, BBC Radio1 airplay and end of year accolades, RA "one of the tracks of 2017". Releasing “Blowback” EP on Foul-Up, "Dosing the Population" on Lower Parts and "Uprising" on Shipwrec & tracks on Repitch and 3TH compilations.

2018 was year of consolidation with touring in India, Russia and shoows throughout Europe including Tresor, Katharsis and a Boiler Room performance at Present Perfect Festival.

Releases included a featured track in Mumdances highly regarded "Shared meanings" compilation and “Paradise Engineering” on close ally Helena Hauffs label Return to Disorder which received glowing reviews from DJ mag Mixmag and Resident Advisor, V/A on Sunil Sharpes Earwiggle label series. Numerous radio plays on BBC Radio 1, NTS and Red Bull Academy

2019 has already seen a tour of Asia and an upcoming appearance at Dekmantel UFO stage in August. The recent “Golden Armageddon” EP [Natural Sciences] hitting the streets in June, a track on the V/A Oribtants 2 on FU:me and the soon to be released records on Ilian Tape and Breakin Records [DMX Krews label] and a featured track on Helena Hauffs Tresor Kern mix
