The tracks on the Endangered Species EP were directly inspired by experiences in illegal warehouse parties circa 1992. Destronauts strove to capture the sense of danger amidst the security of being surrounded by like minded people wanting to hear new sounds and dance. A modern, after hours techno sound permeates the EP along with an underlying theme of mankind and its effects on other men and animals. Destronauts see the EP as a unique opportunity to tell a story through the vessels of house and techno music. Bass lines, synths, and hi-hats became voices of determination, suspense, and tension.
Within the EP are three tracks: “Sentient Beings,” with its ominous rhythms and pads offset by a smooth vocal conveying the desperation to free one’s mind with a night of celebratory dance, the acid-inflected “Endangered Species” that effectively transmits the tension and risk of an illegal warehouse party, and the cinematic, Italo-flavored “Exit Strategy” meant as a soundtrack to a scene of animals in captivity planning escape. There’s also an instrumental and radio edit of “Sentient Beings” rounding out the package.
