Israeli electronic producer Highway Superstar has shared his new single ‘Pangea’.

Real name Alex Karlinsky, the producer’s synth-wave sound melds together 80s forebears – elements of Kraftwerk, early Detroit techno – with a unique and highly personal sound.

New album ‘Contraband’ affords Highway Superstar place to explore his singular aesthetic in full, resulting in some extraordinary moments.

Retro-futurist synthetics, his take on neon-soaked electronics pursues some individual pathways.

New single ‘Pangea’ is out now, and it’s a bold digital manoeuvre, applying some human-touches to his dazzling electronics.

A song about the wish to “go back to simpler times”, ‘Pangea’ layers his sound in guest elements, including a breathy saxophone solo.

Highway Superstar comments…

‘Pangea’ was written about the fantasy to go back to simpler times; when nature was earth’s ruling force and there weren’t any humans around to tarnish it. The music came to me instantly, but I sat on it for some time before I started hearing the chorus in my head. I knew I wanted to name the song ‘Pangea’, and the lyrics to the chorus were already pretty clear to me but otherwise, I had no lyrics.

When I started recording it all came into place quite naturally, especially the chorus. As the song took shape and I realized it’s gonna take the listener to a fantasy land, I decided to augment that emotion with saxophone and some Foley effects. I hope it takes you on a journey!

Tune in now.
