After releasing a series of excellent tracks on 7 Interchill compilations, the time finally came for a full length album from Eat Static. Back to Earth was the first exclusively downtempo serving from these long-standing pioneers on the electronic frontier. Delivering a solid selection of unreleased tracks, this highly anticipated sonic masterpiece captured the attention of their ever-growing fan base around the world.
Packed with all new material recorded over the past year Back to Earth features an exquisite tracklist of tunes that reveal the true extent of Eat Static's musical ingenuity. The album is infused with dashes of Arabian and jazzy influences alongside solid rhythmic elements and layers of spaced out, otherworldly effects that bear their precision-crafted signature.
Coursing through breaks, dub and lounge territory, Back to Earth includes collaborations with Steve Everitt, Ed Wynne (Ozric Tentacles) and Steve Hillage & Miquette Giraudy (System 7 / Mirror System). Complete with an unparalleled degree of stylistic variety and detail, this album encapsulates all that people have come to expect from Eat Static over the years.
