With Callisto, the fifth album under the Micronaut banner, Chris Randall twists the lush electronics and aggressive beats that are standard Micronaut fare in to an altogether new sound. From the pounding rush of "Rapid I Movement" and "Full Speed," featuring the vocals of Chicago indie rapper Bless 1, to the melodic closure of "Semicoma," Callisto dips in to the IDM, dnb, progressive house, and Big Beat genres with equal disdain for labels, yet still retains a consistent sense of self.
Bless 1's addition to the rotating roster of Micronaut contributors brings an entirely new flavor to the palette. The nightmare scene lyrics of "Rapid I Movement" and the desperation of "Full Speed" fit in perfectly with Randall's skittering drum programming and melodies. "Skeeter," "Quickie" and "Minimist" explore differing views of house music, while "Function" and "Pin" are Randall's take on the more commercial side of IDM. All in all, Callisto is typical Micronaut, inasmuch as it is hard to nail down, following the moving target that is the state of electronic music.

The Atomica Project: Grayscale
Grayscale, the highly anticipated sophomore release from The Atomica Project, embodies in itself the struggle of its execution. Taking nearly 3 years to complete, Grayscale is filled with elaborate narratives of failure and recovery. Loosely based on the dramatic climate of Lauren Cheatham and Wade Alin's adopted home of Chicago, many of the tracks draw parallels between the cinematic storms of the Midwest and the turmoil of interpersonal relationships.
One is the debut album from Chicago native Bounte. Combining a breakbeat and IDM backbone with strong melodic textures and melodies, One is an unique take on the current electronic music scene.
A brooding and introspective piece of melodic electronica, Micronaut's fourth album is dark and cinematic, with twisting synth lines and disjointed drum-beats vying for attention amid a thick bed of drones and found sound.
Micronaut moves further afield with their third release, Ganymede, which explores drum & bass, jungle and tech-step.
Io finds the common ground between breakbeat and trance with a generous dose of NASA thrown in for good measure.
Micronaut: Micronaut s/t
Building from a space-like ambience to a dance floor frenzy, Micronaut's debut album is most commonly refered to as music for sex and dancing!
