This is the début album by Detroit's Mother Cyborg.
– "Phuturistic" – Joe Stannard, The Wire
After trailing with the too-hot-to-handle '3souled Women' and reflective lift-off piece 'Earth Dreams,' Detroit's Mother Cyborg is releasing her début album on Saturday 29 April, and launching it at El Club that evening.
Detroit Metro Times just ran a preview with this perfect summary:
"A trip through Nucera's multifaceted musical influences — from Chicago-style footwork to house and global bass to Cumbia — the album is her vision of a cyborg's journey to consciousness. It's as grand as it is cellular, a moving opus to the power of both personal self-realization and the science of cell regeneration as it occurs in a moving body — all in the context of science fiction, the perfect genre to explore the tech-infused world of electronic music."
The album release party is to be hosted by Rolling Stone pick Tunde Olaniran and features a stellar Detroit/NYC lineup in support. Mother Cyborg's visuals on the night will be programmed by CaliXta and there will be lasers.
Get the album here now and it will be released to you early on 29 April.
