The chameleonic John Heckle returns with another very tasty EP.

Blues for a Red Giant follows the Liverpudlian producer’s acid-tinged Laid Away EP and sees him bending his crunchy analogue set-up into increasingly exotic shapes.

Opener ‘Bon Voyage’ feels like a glorious homage to vintage synthpop while ‘Red Giant Encounter’ is powered by menacing sci-fi drones; elsewhere he drifts into woozy forest techno and hypnotic melodies. Check out the clips in the player below.

The EP arrives on Dublin label Lunar Disko sometime soon. Hear Heckle’s FACT mix and see which wild card he picked for My Favourite Record. [via JunoPlus]
