German techno master DJ Koze recently announced his return with the intergalactic dancefloor filler 'Seeing Aliens', announcing a new album Knock Knock in the process. With that news came the track list, which revealed a whole host of exciting vocal talents involved with the project, one of whom was Irish pop favourite Róisín Murphy on a couple of tracks. Today we get to enshroud ourselves in on of those: the delightful 'Illumination'.

On 'Illumination' DJ Koze sets out his immaculate lightweight techno groove just as effortlessly as ever, opening up a perfect space into which Murphy can glide. In this stainless steel disco setting she takes on a slightly cyborg-like character with a human heart, presenting a vocal that is perfectly accentuated by Koze's production, at once harking back to her days of making classic 90s pop with Moloko, but projecting it out into the cosmos with futuristic techniques and plenty of little quirks and details that will keep surprising you on multiple listens. The partnership seems so natural, it's no surprise that Koze had this to say about the creation: "Working on a song together with Roísín is even better than not working at all.”

Listen to 'Illumination' below.

DJ Koze's forthcoming album Knock Knock comes out through Pampa on May 4th and can be pre-ordered here.
