Out today on legendary label Tectonic. Also includes INDIGO on the remix tip for the B side.

Boomkat say:

Supremely strange and heavy new single from Illum Sphere backed with a smart Indigo remix. A-side ‘Dream Stealin’ forces through a vortex of acousmatic voices and severely warped electronics before spurting into breathlessly high-velocity rhythms, narcotic drones and finishing with a cyber-boogie resolution. On the flip ‘Blood Music’ is more stable, engineered with a twitchin’ 2-step bounce, embedded with more serene choral voices and a Fly Lo-esque sense of psychedelia. For us, the best thing here is Indigo’s sterling rework of ‘Blood Music’, seckling the drums into darting clusters of hi-tech funk but maintaining a darker, more midnight-tempered ambience and restraint. We can’t wait to hear his new tracks for Exit! Definitely the oddest thing with heard from Illum, recommended!
