Review: Once a compelling production unit on the superb Thisisnotanexit label, it's been a while since we heard anything from the Spectral Empire duo of Kyle Martin & George Thompson. More recently the pair has been engaged in other projects, with Martin collaborating with Jonny Nash as Land Of Light and Thompson casting a cosmic spell on the Andy's Weatherall and Blake with his Black Merlin output. Back together as Spectral Empire for this 12" on Nu Earth Kitchen, Martin and Thompson's studio chemistry hasn't dissipated in the time apart on the basis of the two cuts here. Lead track "Goloko Dhama" uses it's nine minute duration wisely as Spectral Empire go deep into a brooding sci fi flecked disco groove. Face down "Sadhu" finds Martin and Thompson veer into almost techno territory driven by some brilliantly sputtery 808s.
