Thousands of years ago, a vast armada of spacecraft journeyed across an ocean of stars in search of planets capable of supporting life: to this aim, planet Earth was discovered and colonised. Only now do we begin to translate the recordings of this fantastic historical event…
Strange Planet (OST), the new Sci-Fi Thriller from UK producer Tom Caruana (Wu-Tang vs The Beatles/Jimi Hendrix, Son Of Sam) is the result of some of these audio finds.
Amassing an all star cast of solitary space cowboys, Mr Lif, Jehst, billy woods, King Kashmere, Denmark Vessey, Lee Scott, Paten Locke, Confucius MC, Willie Evans Jr, Kosyne, Magestik Legend, Joker Starr, Prince Po, VVV (Juga-Naut, Cappo & Vandal Savage), Boog Brown, Scorzayzee, Dillon, and HPBLK & Skuff address this planetary good vibe zone.
Intergalactic observations have picked up readings of intense energy waves coming from Earth music, and the musicians capable of producing it are being abducted at an alarming rate. This is a glass onion of an album and there’s plenty of dots to join together. The album is in part a reflection of the times and our everyday lives on this strange planet we live on (everything was recorded pre-pandemic). No one was given a brief to work to either, the tracks (with the exception of Chains and Bounty Hunter On The Rise) just forming themselves. King Kashmere’s track really kicked off ideas for the concept of this collection, so it made sense to open the album with his track Stranded.
Strange Planet takes you on a far out experience, by looking at what’s already right under your nose.
Music wise Tom treats us to an array beats with rich textures, synths, banging drums, old film and radio samples, tinged with melancholia and the surreal. The closest Caruana project in sound to this is his Can sampling Inner Space from 2019.
