Inigo Kennedy has been with Token since the beginning. With a strong existing catalog stretching back to the 90s, Kennedy produced the first Token release from a place of confidence, with an EP of bold and dark, yet playful and seriously storming techno tracks. Since then he has been consistent in delivering a succession of releases that are always surprising, but instantly recognisable as fitting with his own polished sonic identity. This impressive body of work includes the full-length LP Vaudeville, in which he explored the many facets of his abilities as a producer, from atmospheric heights of ambience to murky and claustrophobic pacing grooves.

Now for Token 62, his double A-side NGC EP continues with a theme originating from the final track on Vaudeville, delving into the aesthetics of the interstellar clouds of Cygnus and Draco. The EP as a whole is swelling, melodic and subtle, with the AA-side NGC6543 named after the ‘Cat’s Eye’ nebula, taking its time with warm crescendos and crisp splashes of percussion to activate a meridian body response. NGC6826 (Blinking Eye) pulsates with a broken beat, the rhythm just pausing for a classic melancholic refrain before returning to force for its finale.
