Artist: Tickets Title: Black Mind Thoughts EP Label: Biomechanix Records Date: November, 2012 1. Ennax (Full On Version) 2. Collapsed Kingdom 3. Waboba Kappibarru Rising Forehead "Chill...chill. Take a chill pill." Tickets is Joseph Summs, a twilight artist who's had great success riding the Android Wave of South African psytrance with 2 albums to his credit and plenty of compilation work. This was one of those EP's that didn't grab me right away. It required further digging. I was going to describe this as a short 3 tracker but there ain't nothing short about 11 and a half minutes, know what I'm sayin? Ennax is an epic storytelling track that has its fast and slow moments. Sounding more like an FLA side project it has an extended intro and symphonic presence until the trance kicks in. Honestly I was more entranced by the sample than the music. Who can ever get enough McLovin? Collapsed Kingdom continues the epic feel and is more Principles of Flight than Tickets. It's ominous and goes medieval on you. He saves the best for last with the most aggressive and Tickets like track. It still carries the same vibe, but the power and in your face factor is turned up. And that track name...what the hell does that even mean? To compare I would say this is more Dreaming of Places than Timelapse with a strong nod towards the theatrical. Consider it expanding his horizons. Entertaining. Re reading the review I don't think I said Tickets enough. So...tickets. Beatport Mdk
Artist: Technodrome Title: Freedom EP Label: Biomechanix Records Date: May, 2012 1.Neucler 2. Free Faizal 3. Melted Mind (feat. Orca) 4. Freedom 5. Fallen Star (feat. Panayota) 6. Back To Life "There was a feeling that you could take a college graduate from Indiana U and give him L.S.D. and create a hippie..." This is Shay Ben Haion and he really liked him some ninja turtles. The project name I suppose is from the tank-like fortress that serves as the base of Shredder and Krang from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series. Yeah I had to look that up. His debut (and to this point only) album Earthquake waaay back in 2005 (wow, really?) a stomper in the twilight genre which I still really like had a picture of Donatello on the cover. Had to look that up also. Then some of the track names were turtle related. So what's he been up to lately? Well let's see...a quick internet search and...hmmm...you don't say? Arrested for selling drugs in India? Waitaminute...you can take a crap in the street in India, but you can't move a little LSD? Really, who is in charge of revoking this nation's third world status? He shoulda done that sh*t here. Lindsay Lohan gets caught with coke, has had numerous DUI's and been charged with theft on multiple occasions and she still gets to make movies. Yeah, they're sh*tty movies, but whatever. I hope he had something to give him comfort while he was in the joint. Of course he would. Not a lot of info on the net so maybe he'll see this review and enlighten us. So many things I want to know. Did he try to lift every weight in the gym and read every book in the library? Silly me they don't have books in India. How often did he have to fight off homosexual advances? Did he have to do the warden's taxes to get ethical treatment? How did he get his mind right to crawl through 500 yards of the worst smells imaginable on his way to freedom? I'll be honest most everything I know about prison comes from the Shawshank Redemption. Or maybe he's been through such a horrible ordeal he'll tell me to go f*ck myself. I can't think of anything more hopeless or disgusting than an Indian prison. Except maybe India. The cover of this maxi-ep kinda gives you a general outline of things with the handcuffs, and the fingerprints and the freedom thing. The track titles seem to mirror the 5 stages of grief. Are there 5 or 6? I think you get an extra one when you're in an Indian prison. The question is does Shay who now has more in common with Martha Stewart than he realized still know how to bring the twilight craziness? Hmmm...yes, with a caveat. He hasn't lost the ability to bring pumping and acidic mayhem to the dance floors. His collaborations with fellow night time music producers Orca and Panayota was like slipping on a comfortable pair of shoes. Some of his bass lines are tangible, like being able to get a good grip with your toes and I like his futuristic cyber sound, but with a lot of "alone" time he seems to have become cozy with annoying buildups. Some are longer than others and some peak with a spoken sample which I like (Free Faizal has Platform- and then the beat hits). Mind you, it's not bad at all and if you are looking for some balls to the wall insanity this will certainly do the trick. Welcome back sir, you were missed. Beatport Mdk
