Despite the UK's decision to go it alone, the spirit of cross-European collaboration goes on. Here, Rotterdam's Pinkman Records joins forces with Zurich-based Lux Rec for a very special, one-off 12". Dutch producer Ian Martin handles side A, first delivering the crystalline synthesizer melodies, ghostly chords and foreboding notes of "Mirage", before blasting into space via the woozy Italo-disco hustle of "Synthetic Liberation". Regular studio buddies Barbie and Nicola Kazimir are reunited on the flip, lacing foreboding chords over bubbly, off-kilter drum machine rhythms on the krautrock-influenced "Electronische Sequenz Prolet". They also round off proceedings with a dash of sub-heavy electro, "Gerausch".
