The composers and purveyors of digital music known as UFODJs have released their latest full-length album, “Space Sound.” The LP record is composed of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of one full hour. It has been published on the Sunday Makes Records independent music label. With elements of ambient, electro house, progressive house and other genres from the popular front of digital music, “Space Sound” by UFODJs is one of today’s best examples of the contemporary studio sound, and a record by one of the few bands claiming a home other than earth.
UFODJs cite as main artistic influences Armin Van Buuren, Fatboy Slim, Tiesto, Carl Cox, Ben Liebrand, Prince, and the Prodigy. Yet this is where their familiarity with other DJs and musicians allegedly ends.
Upon being asked, “How did you start getting involved in music?” the UFODJs respond succinctly, “We learn from Human.” When questioned regarding the overall theme and message their new LP record might have in store for fans and new listeners, UFODJs reply, “We landed. We are aliens not robot.”
Their official website maintains this as the literal truth. Even when lengthened from the acronym, UFODJs, their name is consistent with this background. These disc jockeys are from Ultra Funky Origins. The duo comprises musicians U.V and U.I [sic], who are described in their official bio as having come to Earth in the 1960s during the popularity of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and David Bowie.
“Bringing with them sounds from a distant future,” their bio reads, “the peculiar visitors UV and UI went on a mission to prepare the world for the music that’s to come. Disguised in human suits, they assimilated themselves as one of us, traversing the world to inoculate people with their strange gift of music. And through the untold number of lives they crossed, they had inevitably influenced popular culture in an alternative history we were never taught in class.
“In their latest exploit, they are aliens pretending to be humans pretending to be aliens, a clever scheme to finally walk the earth in their own skins while sharing their music to everyone.”
“Space Sound” by UFODJs is available online worldwide.
