Ben I Sabbah did they've met sun ra, somewhere out there on the flight between neptun and jupiter? outer space jazz at its best ;-) Favorite track: Salacians Of Trans-Neptunia.

Twistedsoul Space jazz for lovers of leftfield music. The dance diverse never sounded so odd and good. If Richard Branson ever flies to Planet Battagon i'll be first in the queue.

Cycletryst Utterly brilliant - out there, in the zone and all stops between. This has had me entranced since the moment it dropped and cannot wait till the rest of the ep on vinyl arrives. If Moon of Dysnomia was half as good I'd be pretty cheesed off by now off by now - but the track keeps on giving. Immense intergalactic primordial tangency. Wow!

about

Planet Battagon are innovators in Droid Jazz. Electronics, jazz and outer-national sounds ain’t no new thing. But following in the extra terrestrial sounds and cosmic mythology of Sun Ra Planet Battagon are not reaching for the cosmos but simply made of it. Droid consciousness is the starting point but what’s consciousness got to do with it. The droid’s need culture, music and art and of the highest and most experimental of that lies Droid Jazz.


Originating on Lord Battagon’s home planet the group are documenting the folklore and jazz stylings of the Trans-neputnia neighbourhood out on the edgelands of the solar system. This debut release follows on from a Lord Battagon outing on the Atlantic Jaxx label.



The Noise Droids of Planet Battagon are:

Jack Baker - Acoustic Drums

Martin Slattery- Bass Clarinet,Alto Sax & FX

Oli Savill - Percussion

Mickey Ball - Trumpet

Nathan Curran (Tugg) Synth Bass,Syn Drums,FX & Conductor





‘Who’s out on Quaoar?’ is taken from the Ltd Ed 12” 'Battagon Symphony', part one of ‘The Rough Guide to Trans-Neptunia’. The release also features ‘Salacians of Neptunia’, a homage to the early droid cultural pioneers and the chant like ‘Moon of Dysnomia’ that is played ceremonially to temper the erratic saline tides of the aforementioned moon especially during it’s retrograde period. Droids and saline do not mix well and OntheCorner are releasing these 'Rough Guides to Trans-Neptunia' after intercepting distressed transmissions prior to a devastating saline tide.
