Glaswegian space-funkateer Am$trad Billionaire returns after years of traversing through retro-cyber galaxies, making more aggressive acquisitions in one day than Lord Sugar does in a year. His last trip was Galaxy 500. It took us all to far-off places and was a bit of a big deal… Especially the lead track The Plan.

Picked up by Solomun years after its 2013 release, The Plan was licenced for his GTA After Hours mix and gave the track a whole new lease of life. But, like all good entrepreneurs, Am$trad Billionaire (boardroom name: Jamie Miller in case you ever do business with him) is back with another investment opportunity: Outer Limits.

A project in four parts that spirals deep into his cosmic sonic universe. Once again, the man with the plan delivers and returns are guaranteed. His salubrious space funk will seal the deal with any dancefloor as each part of the EP charms us around a different corner of his sprawling, synth-heavy style.

Outer Limits I warms up the proposal with a touch of Italo diplomacy, unhurried, disarming. Outer Limits II raises the urgency. He has sucked you into his pitch with the dreamy synths and he is backing it with those driving breakbeats. Outer Limits III gives you space to digest his offer. Slower, funkier with looser drums and bubbly electro boogie edge that gets freakier the deeper into the negotiation we get before. Then finally, Outer Limits IV builds slowly with pops and struts before a set of triumphant strings sweep in and seal the deal. Pure business; all the way those opening 909s right through to the final synth flurry.

Another day, another dollar. A billion thumbs up.
