Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra: “Saturn Hoola Hoop”

In the words of Daniel Glatzel, the leader of this 20-piece Berlin-based ensemble, BUM BUM is “explosive, absurd, and symmetrical.” “Saturn Hoola Hoop” is a neck-bending opening track that transitions soft strings into a heavily symphonic chopped-and-screwed breakbeat. Brass, reed, and string instruments pop in and around an off-kilter kick-and-snare rhythm.
