'Power Cosmic' is the follow up to the 2017 Auxiliary Phoenix EP, 'Camelopardalis'. The last EP leaned towards organic, live and jazzy sounds, while this new release takes root in a more electronic space. It draws influence from future beats, experimental hip hop, trap, indian classical, and jazz fusion to create a darker atmosphere than explored previously, with heavy beats and off-kilter sounds and rhythms.
Guests on the EP include Vast Aire of iconic underground hip hop group Cannibal Ox (Night Light), whose album 'The Cold Vein' has been described as one of the best rap albums of the 2000s. D-Sisive, an acclaimed Canadian underground hip hop emcee, provides vocals for A Splash of Paint. Knowah, an Irish singer and musician, contributes harmony vocals to Signal Boost, and frequent collaborators Gentle Jones (of High Elders) and Illab return for Night Life and its remix version.
