When it comes to new music from Ulysses, you never know what you're going to get. His career has spanned genres from techno and house to experimental and disco, with every release delivering an exciting musical surprise.
An essential pioneer of the late-‘90s electro scene in New York, Ulysses threw some of the biggest large-scale electro parties with legends such as Alexander Robotnick and Arthur Baker, as well as stars like I-f, Adult, and Miss Kittin and the Hacker. Over the span of his eclectic discography, this Brooklyn-based DJ and music producer has collaborated with Thugfucker’s Holmar Filipsson as Filipsson & Ulysses as well as with John Selway in the prolific Neurotic Drum Band.
When we visited Ulysses in his basement studio, we discovered that he had built up a huge archive of unreleased tracks over the past few years as he raised his family. These three tacks are our favorites of the bunch. This is fantastic music that speaks for itself, but Ulysses submitted three questions for this one sheet:
Would you trust a guru in sweatpants?
What nobleman dares to sit on a throne of bubbles?
Is this the theme of the Arctic?

The (mixed) CD version of 'K' is a favourite of mine. So lush. So deep. Especially the build up to the finale of Untitled(1) aka K3.
So I thought I'd pick up this digital version to have the separate tracks. Was shocked to find out that it puts them in an entirely different order! Worse yet, they were just split and faded in/out - the orig studio versions weren't used.
So, for the best experience, I recommend changing the order to: K4, K1, K3; K6, K5, K2, K7. - or best yet, find a CD version. Simon Chester
