23-year-old Los Angeles native Edrina K. Martinez is Astronautica, one of Alpha Pup Records’ newest artists. Bringing a unique style of lush electronica and a playful sense of exploration to the label, the young producer is a fresh face to the thriving local beat scene.
Learning to play guitar by ear at an early age, Astronautica soon began mixing her own samples and beats. After early encouragement by Daedelus and a chance encounter with Shlohmo in San Francisco, the amateur producer was drawn into the musical community and moved quickly from Garage Band to Ableton Live.
Quickly becoming addicted to the burgeoning beat sounds of the West Coast, Astronautica is now a full-fledged member of the movement. Her debut release on Alpha Pup Records is the dreamy LP Replay Last Night, a soothing instrumental album that glows warmly with intricate beats and a soulful sensibility.
