TESTSET release their long awaited third EP ROTATOR on Thursday, October 21st.

With ROTATOR – Testset's long-awaited 3 track release – they employ a different lens to explore memory noise, rich autumnal moiré moodscapes, phosphene flickers, and psychedelic formations.  Testset’s sonic pattern-making is always catholic and syncretic in its inquiry: mesmeric tessellations, immersive dissolutions, all with fastidious attention to spatial depths and harmonic micro-detail that invites a melding of polyrhythm and body-mind.
