Space Expanses is Polestar’s second full release and his first long player on Boltfish Recordings. 15 tracks of glitchy futuristic retro-inspired melodic electronica, fusing together complex beat patterns and warm atmospheric synthesizer tones.

This album captures the air of future optimism that was envisaged by a 1970s society that dreamed of moon colonies and the human race exploring the outer solar system by the end of the 1990s. The album’s concept came about after a rediscovery of progressive rock and an attempt to try and make a progressive electronica album in tribute to the music that the artist was exposed to while growing up.

Jon’s retro influences are combined with more contemporary sounds and cutting-edge production techniques – softly chiming synths, warm string pads, intricate edits, 8 bit arcade game sounds, bleeps and clicks. Space Expanses is a journey of soaring melodies, electro-style beats and robotic twitters and glitches.
