The mysterious ambient-dub and tribal house unit known as Astralasia fits in with other British electro-hippie mystics such as Eat Static, Banco de Gaia and frequent collaborators Suns of Arqa. After a self-titled debut album on the miniscule Fungus label, Astralasia moved to the Magick Eye label, which issued as its first release the band's follow-up, 1992's The Politics of Ecstasy. Three albums down the road, Astralasia released the compilation Astralogy, and then signed an American deal with the industrial label Cleopatra, which issued The Space Between in late 1996 and then two albums in 1997: Seven Pointed Star and Seven by Seven. One year later, Astralasia released their eighth album in as many years, White Bird.
