Today, Django Django reveal Off Planet Part 4, the final six tracks completing the release of the UK four-piece’s fifth full-length studio album Off Planetwhich Uncut calls “their most accomplished and ambitious record to date” and Brooklyn Vegan hails as “their best since their 2012 debut.” Split into four parts, each representing a different “planet”, the record is out now in full today, 16 June 2023, via Because Music - listen / buy it here.

Off Planet was conceptualized by Django Django co-founder and producer Dave Maclean as “a way to go beyond”, to bring new voices, new rhythms, new experimentation into play, and effectively to deconstruct the band’s identity. Off Planet is the biggest, boldest, and most varied statement the band have made, with a cavalcade of mainstream and underground stars – Self Esteem, Jack Peñate, Stealing Sheep, Toya Delazy and many more, all of them either friends of the band or personally sought out by Dave – bringing entirely new creative angles into play. 

From bluesy pop and Middle Eastern cabaret goth to Afro acid and piano rave, to call it kaleidoscopic is putting it mildly. Despite at times not sounding like anything on their previous releases, Off Planet is very much still recognisably Django Django. Says Dave Maclean on the kalaiedoscopic inspirations of the record: “just about everything we love, whether that’s old psychedelia or Detroit techno, has that futuristic or outer space feel, and I think we can’t help putting that into what we do.” 

Part 4’s focus track, “Slipstream”is described by the band as “a trance inducing dance track that began life when Dave wanted something for his DJ sets that sat somewhere between Patrick Cowley, Daft Punk & Vitalic. Heavy electronic elements, intricate melodies, and an addictively danceable beat merge with spacey vocal harmonies to become a Django Django anthem”.

Off Planet features multiple standout singles including the BBC Radio 6 Music A-Listed 90s dance-pop explosion, “Complete Me” ft. Self Esteem, the genre-bending “No Time” ft. Jack Peñate, and the futuristic club track “Don’t Touch That Dial” ft. Yuuko. Part 4 unites the album with a new collaboration with Bernardo on “Who You Know”, as the band set out to join with new voices and experiment with their sound on every release. 

The release of Off Planet will be celebrated on June 17th 2023 with an album release party at Paper Dress Vintage in London following an exceptional show opening up Christine and the Queens’ Meltdown Festival at The Royal Festival Hall last Friday and a performance at Kite Festival. Django Django will kick off a UK instore tour this evening at Rough Trade East in London to mark the release of Off Planet.
