We Are... Genetic, Paul Jackson's first full-length. What a great CD. If there is one thing that should be said about this album it is this: It wonderfully combines the analogue sounds of yesteryear with the compositional ideas and bubbly-bouncin' acid-lines of its time. In doing so, some extremely high-quality, well produced, and downright funky textures are created. There is a warmth in these tones that is so comforting when compared to most of the harsh/cold trance of the era. But! Trance isn't the only thing you'll get. One would expect after hearing the trance-classic, 'Transmission,' that this record would follow similar guidlines. It certainly doesn't. Which may dissapoint some. Floor, comfortably chills on the borderline dividing acid techno and trance. Gala, starts in similar fashion, only to explode into a quirky electro tune halfway through. Uptown-Downtown (my personal favorite), is a downtempo peice which bounces back and forth between minimal and complex, rewarding one with an oh-so-tastey synth melody that may cause one to feel as though one is making sweet, sweet love to an alien. Transmission, needs no intro. Change, boasts some heavy-electro-funk-'ittude. Drop the Bomb, goes back to tread similar waters as, Floor. Fat Boy, a goofy, short, fun, bridge. 42nd Street Hustle (!), jazzy electro that one can't help but instantly groove and snap the' fingas to. Lexus, is one that psy-lovers will enjoy, it brings back the Genetic that you thought you knew after hearing Transmission, long, long ago. Analogico, a great way to wrap it all up. Pick it up. Listen to it for what it is, forget your expectations and just chill.
