a posté un avis de Passenger Of Shit. over 10 years ago
Passenger of Shit is a true Aussie king. From his throne in the Blue Mountains, Passenger of Shit forges his unique brand of expert lampoonery, applying both meanings of the word "Hardcore" to the legendary scene, the hard-driving tour de force ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de CDR. over 10 years ago
The Japanese avant-garde scene gets a lot of press worldwide, so why not the Japanese underground? CDR is a prime example as to why they should. He has a unique penchant for adrenaline-pumping beatfuckery, and is perfectly capable of backing this up with ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Leafcutter John. over 11 years ago
I'm really surprised about how varied Leafcutter John's styles are. I mean, none of Planet Mu's signees are one-trick ponies, Datach'i's done breakcore, and drill n' bass, Venetian Snares has done ambient and glitch, but Leafcutter John's done glitch, ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Datach'i - Mmale And Ffemale. over 11 years ago
From listening to this album, one thing becomes very clear: Datach'i has matured notably. Whereas previous albums showed influence from such artists as Pole, early Kid606, and late Aphex Twin, this album draws its roots from glitch music, musique ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Against Me. over 11 years ago
Now I haven't the entire album, or this review would be in a different place entirely. However, I gotta say, I wonder why Stunt Rock was so hard on himself over his work under this name. A lot of Stunt Rock's works around this time were plagued by either ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Venetian Snares. over 11 years ago
Venetian Snares never ceases to surprise. There is the overall skill of his albums, combined with the overall speed at which he releases them. There is his unique capability to jump from the discordant noisy groove of "Making Orange Things" to the upbeat ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Mindless Self Indulgence - Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy. over 11 years ago
First, let's take a look at the box. The back, which should display the track titles, instead displays their opinion towards censorship. The liner images are a real treat, especially Jamie Hewlett's contributions. Even the credits display MSI in all of ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Sublight Records. over 11 years ago
I've always had a love/hate relationship with Sublight. The label appears to have been part of a Canadian Breakcore movement. However, it probably should have decided on a better modus operandi. It seemed to press albums based entirely on what potential ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Brian Eno. over 11 years ago
I have heard reviewers who were critical of Brian Eno's works claim that they were essentially just elevator music or mood music. And I must say, they are completely and totally correct. And that's what makes Eno so great. The fact that in a genre of ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Venetian Snares - Doll Doll Doll. over 11 years ago
Wow. This is one of Venetian Snares' best works to date. This album pulls samples from all over, ranging from video games and jazz music to gangsta rap and phone calls. The end result of it all is one of the creepiest recordings ever to be mastered to ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Mindless Self Indulgence - If. over 11 years ago
This is where I stopped listening to MSI. It seems like they just sold out completely, giving the fans who loved them for what made them unique the finger. Granted, they do go back to their old ways on tracks like "Revenge" and "Mark David Chapman," but ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Stunt Rock. over 11 years ago
Despite the several jabs Stunt Rock tends to make at labelmate and fellow breakcore producer Venetian Snares, Stunt Rock is pretty skilled. He takes loops from all over, obscure vocal samples, cuts and pastes them, then adds his own finishing touches. ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Stunt Rock - This Is Stunt Rock Volume Three. over 11 years ago
Of the two Stunt Rock albums still in print, this one shows a lot more maturity than "The Pinnacle of Mediocrity" and the albums it took tracks from. While he continues to make jabs at labelmate and fellow breakcore/hardcore producer Venetian Snares, the ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Stunt Rock - The Pinnacle Of Mediocrity. over 11 years ago
If you can get past the samples that Stunt Rock uses and how he uses them, this is a pretty good album.
Some select favorites:
Both the tracks from his second split. For the better part of Don't Touch Me Unless You Are Gonna Play With My Balls, which ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Datach'i - Wearealwayswellthankyou. over 11 years ago
Released one year after his first album, and just as strong, Wearealwayswellthankyou is yet another staple of early Datach'i's style. Free In A Box starts the album right with a drill n' bass song that is the aural equivalent of crop circles. Shortly ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Datach'i - 10110101 = (Rec+Play). over 11 years ago
This is one of Datach'i's best albums to date. Opening with "Deconstructing Man" one of the weirdest breakbeat tracks out there which slowly becomes one of the weirdest takes on childhood out there, followed by "Leonard Park", a beautiful little track ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de V/Vm. over 11 years ago
You have to hand it to him: If nothing else, V/vm is quite the daredevil. First, he creates his own label with Janskynoise, deals in artists nobody else will, runs it off his own money, then he writes music which screws around with the ears, the mind, ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Mindless Self Indulgence. over 11 years ago
I used to like this group, but now, it seems like they've sacrificed all that made them unique just for money and fame. They do explore the style that people used to know them for, Jimmy Urine's astounding pitch range and all-out programming, Steve, ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Datach'i. over 11 years ago
Datach'i has always been to the underground Electronica scene, most notably Drum n' Bass, what the Muppet Show is to Sesame Street. He takes everything everybody knows, grew up with, etc. and cranks it up a bit. From his first album, featuring distorted ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Xanopticon - Psicicite. over 11 years ago
I have heard a lot of hype about Xanopticon. Some have even compared him to Venetian Snares. After listening to this EP, I can proudly say that he lives up to it. This is about 25 minutes of the creepiest music out there. Hymen Records has done it again ... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Datach'i - Song 4 Picture Opus 341 In C Minor. over 11 years ago
This is a classic staple of Datach'i's old style, and perhaps one of the strangest takes on classical music I've heard since Venetian Snares' Rossz Csillag Alatt Szulletet, or perhaps V/vm's The Missing Symphony. A set of bizzare computer noises plays ... Voir l'avis en entier

One of my favorite works by our friends the eyeballs. Snakefinger really pulled out the stops on this one and the Residents have given it their all. I'll do the review track by track...

a posté un avis de Venetian Snares - Songs About My Cats. over 11 years ago
I would suggest this album as a first for new fans. The album is a neat blend of a lot of things that Venetian Snares would later use, ranging from improvised piano to time signatures he doesn't normally work with. to even hired musicians and unusual ... Voir l'avis en entier
