    Does anyone hear a similarity with the drums in Slagplum and 9th Wonder (Blackitolism) by Diggable Planets?

      I bet a million dollars this is Aaron Funk. Listen to 'We are Oceans' and then listen to this.

          I cannot believe I bagged on of these. I feel so lucky right now. Genius idea with the lock grooves. I had some fun with my Allen and Heath using these loops and some effects..:-)

            Love the loungey breakbeat feel of Slagplum_rubick v.5. Very soothing number that one is. Great record from the mysterious Brainz. Thanks for the quality pressing and output Furthur Electronix!

                After listening to the record, I feel like this record is a bit of a departure from what most people may be expecting of of the artist. Upon hearing the first track, Slagplum _rubick v.5, I immediately questioned if this was even Brainwaltzera at all, considering the strong female vocals which is reminiscent of the band Portishead. But it kind of grew on me, even if it was very different from what I heard before. It's a good song, over-all, very dark sounding, and not as intricate as other Brainwaltzera songs. If you like Portishead or Massive Attack, you'll probably like Slagplum _rubick v.5.If you're looking for Marzipan-style Brainwaltzera or Aphex Twin-style, this song is not like that.

                Bewbull [dusty_pot jam] is the 2nd track on side A and starts-off rather simple with a sweeping phaser on a simple drum beat. It's a very ambient song that has some interesting sci-fi effects interlaced but something sounds weird with the recording, like a short hiss that happens every couple of seconds. Too long of a duration in-between the hisses to be the turntable, has to be the master recording. This hiss is rather distracting and I don't think it was intentional. The song is otherwise a nice little ambient number, but also not of much complexity. If you like Aphex Twin's SAWII, you'll probably enjoy this one a bit as long as you can get past the constant hiss sound.

                As far as the B-side tracks go, they are all about 1.8 seconds long, locked-groove loops. So it's a total of about 10.8 seconds worth of music on side B. The first track, Flaningale, has a nice cheerful sound to it, but since it's a loop, doesn't really go anywhere. The second loop, Ambupop, reminds me a little bit of what RDJ did on Analogue Bubblebath 4. Bewduck seems to be a simple drum and chorus track, not much too it in my opinion, kind of has a late 1990s feel to it. Sinclair is just kind of a noisy mess like a room full of cuckoo clocks. Didn't enjoy that loop too much. Jaykayjaykayjaykay is really just a short rising chorus of sorts and on my copy ends in what sounds like a bit of scratch. Not very impressive as a loop in my opinion, it needed to run on a little longer. And the last loop, Wash_cloud, kind of sounds like a running motor and a bell.

                These b-side tracks in my opinion are not terribly impressive. Anyone with cheap synth could cut these little 1.8 second snippets without much issue. I really don't understand why they were included as an entire B side of this record, considering the effort required to jump to each track and the general disappoint I felt while listening to them. I would have much preferred if they simply made this album, which really only runs about 10 minutes and 30 seconds long into a solid 7 inch single and omitted the locked-groove loops which add very little.

                If you're thinking about throwing down $100+ to get this one, I'd suggest you reconsider or see if you can get a listen before you buy. Brainwaltzera has put out some amazing stuff in the past, but this one is a bit confounding and falls a bit short in my opinion.

                  Bewbull [dusty_pot jam] sounds like an alien cousin of 'A Forest' by The Cure!

                      I am unsure about the locked-grooves on the B side. Anything i should know...i can only seem to get the A side to play 2 songs. Sorry to be such a novice on this but just can't wait to here the B-side songs. thanks for any help or pointers.
