"the turing test The Astrolabe (digital release)"

Four tracks of rare quality from this Newcastle-based duo whose currency is beats carved from blocks of ice, pleasingly thumpy basslines and melodies pushed very much to the fore. Do check them out: DP - The Crack Magazine

"The Turing Test"

There’s two of them (as the above pic hints at), they’re from Newcastle, and they know their way around an electronic tune: it’s The Turing Test.

You can’t beat a lovely slice of electronica for lifting the soul during these dark months and The Turing Test have got some juddering good stuff to take to your heart. Dark and rumbling and pierced with some divine shards of light,

they’ve also got those requisite killer tunes to set everything off nicely. I’m getting tints of Leftfield, dollops of Soft Cell and all wrapped up in some krautrock-style fixtures and fittings. And they know when to keep it minimal, when to take it up a notch or two, and when to put their foot to the floor. They’ve got dates coming up (including some planned European dates in Spring), so be sure to check out their myspace for all the latest. Our advice: Time to take The Turing Test.

Rachel Casey and Guy Schofield met through the internet in 2006 and through a process of continental drift became The Turing Test in 2008. United by a passion for Swedish synthpop, krautrock and cold war military hardware, they released The Astrolabe, a chronicle of their first space mission in 2010. It was described as 'Dark and rumbling and pierced with some divine shards of light' by Crack Magazine.

As much visual artists as musicians, The Turing Test inhabit various characters on their youtube channel and augment their stage shows with carefully built visuals and movies, some of which are available on 'Artifex' released in 2011. Both multi-instrumentalists, they write, produce, master, shoot, animate and direct all their own material.
