Trus'me -- aka David James Wolstencroft -- is a producer, DJ and owner of record label Prime Numbers. Purveyor of fine house and techno, he's about to release his adventurous Planet 4 LP, a vehicle for his own interest in space, physics, and dark matter. Take an exclusive look at the visuals for our favorite -- and the most glitchy -- track on the record, "The Unexplained."

"I love the art of writing an LP," says David. "It's something I feel most at home with, telling a story from start to finish and taking the listener on a journey to, hopefully in this case, another dimension." As shots of sand dunes overlaid with illuminated maps give way to archive footage of space, we're abducted and left in a far off place populated with satellites spinning, sonars pinging and mesmerizing colors that transform the environment. Created by visual artist and Berlin-based Londoner, Amy Webster, the video sends viewers down Route 66 and deep into a memory of old sci-fi B movies. Basically, it's brilliant and comes with an unsettling soundtrack to match. Hit play and look for signs of life.

Planet 4 LP is due for release on May 30
