Just as one thing can be viewed entirely different in different light, depending on how you view it light itself can appear as entirely different things - as wave or as particle. The photons which light consists of are neither the one thing nor the other, and yet they're both at the same time.
On his superluminal trips through the electromusical universe Kosmonaut had plenty of opportunities to delve deeply into the nature of light, and enough inspiration to record his findings in the universal language of music. On long-wave basses he drags us down into the hypnotic maelstrom of a black hole of infinitely compressed dubstep, lets perishing melodical fragments flash up one last time before the energetic darkness swallows them entirely. What started out as drum'n'bass from another world, bursts into a supernova of brilliantly variegated tone colours, emits shockwaves of pulsating beats and blows a harmonic particle-storm through our gray cells.
Purists may now wonder whether Kosmonaut is about dubstep or about drum'n'bass. Much in the vain of the wave-particle-dualism he is neither about the one thing nor about the other, and yet he's about both at the same time. In the end, though, much like the photon itself, Kosmonaut really is about one thing: energy.
