"Message To The World: "Life Is Fast Ending - So Live!"


September 4, 2008

A few further things worth noting: the instrumentation here sounds a lot more digital to me - especially the drums - than on many of the other Drexciya LPs. The character of the percussion still sounds broadly similar - we're still talking lashings of 808, but it's *how* they were made that's interesting to JS/GD geeks: I think we're talking a lot of software and samples here, as opposed to the many analogue tones we're used to with Drexciya. Another thing is the melancholy which permeates all of these tracks. Oceanic sadness is pretty unique to this Drexciya LP, in the way that it's more or palpable on all of the songs [rather than one or two - as is the case with most Drexciya albums] whether in the background or to the fore. It's interesting to speculate, given this must have been amongst the last works James Stinson completed. Finally, you might be surprised that in fact despite all the foregoing, there is a extremely JITWORTHY LP hiding within what seem mostly like home listening, made-for-CD-tracks. Turn it up to plus 7/8. See what I mean? Electro till the end, really.

This LP is definately the most extreme James Stinson release in terms of experimentation. The tracks do have the typical Drexciyan beats, but the whole atmosphere is rather different; at some times freaked out, but very interesting. This LP will take you to places where music has never taken you before. The first few times I listened to this record I didn't care for it much, I was a fan of the earlier Transllusion releases, this ons just sounded strange to me. But I gave it a few more shots and now I think this is one of the best albums in terms of forward thinking electronic music. James Stinson truly was an innovator and a great musician.

My favourite track would have to be Consequences. But on this LP it's the whole picture which is more relevant than the single tracks.
