Artist: Geko Title: Poison Flowers Label: Digital Psionics Date: June, 2009 1. To the Face 2. Like This 3. Heads Up 4. F*cking B*tch 5. Iron Fist 6. Squeeze It 7. Suck My Ectoplasmic 8. World On Fire (Battlegoats) 9. Poison Flowers "I don't want to set the world on fire..." Well good news...you didn't. For me it's kind of hard to get excited about full-on projects even though my mind is always open. There's good stuff out there if you know where to look (be prepared to wade through a waist deep morass of crap though) and recently I've had a couple fall into my lap. This is an Israeli artist whose brand of full-on is acidic and punchy and he's a had a few good tracks on some compilations. With his debut (and only) album he beats you over the head with its aggressive nature loaded with harsh sounds and dark, futuristic themes. It's not the best I've heard and there are some cringeworthy buildups that will test your fast forwarding finger. What I've found is that there are some really thumping beats and fat basses that seem as though they will set the world on fire. Yet... Sometimes he takes that momentum and slams it into the wall with the aforementioned buildups. Let me just say that I love the last track. Supremely powerful with it's Chemical Brothers brutish swagger that will keep your head nodding. That is how you put an exclamation point at the end of a decent yet unspectacular album. Psyshop
Artist: Various Title: Abra Macabre Label: Trick Music Date: June, 2009 1. Ozrels Machine - Torque is Cheap 2. Scorb - Stratagem 3. Prism - Six Paper Joints 4. Squid Inc. - Fin 5. Phibian - Lo-Phi 6. Prism Vs. Phibian - The Probe 7. The Hoax - Fabrication 8. RAM - Illumination 9. Ozrels Machine - Destrukt (Scorb Rmx) Potty training sucks. It really does. I don't remember having this much trouble and stress with the first child. God knows it sucks that's why he blesses you with the power of short memory. We are right there, right at the precipice of not having to deal with diapers. It's so close I can almost taste it. Really I can feel it. And I did. Kid was playing with the Kindle on my bed, leaning on my legs whilst I attempted to grab a few winks. After multiple denials of having to use the potty, I force her to go. That's when I felt it. Through her pants, on my pants, all over the comforter to the sheet and even on the cooling layer. If you're a parent then you've probably been there. I swear nothing is safe when you have kids. I mean do you have any idea how long it takes to dry a comforter and sheets? As I'm standing there berating this poor 3 year old and comparing her to a dog that pees wherever the f*ck it wants to I realize I've gone to far. It's very stressful and I'm learning that there isn't a lot of reasoning with a 3 year old. Ahhh....this too shall pass. So anyway this is basically Scorb and all the people he invited to the studio to muck around. And I'm telling you he should stick with this formula. It's stomping good twilight psytrance with a groovy sway. Evolving melodies and well timed breaks make this fun to listen to. Hell I'll put it out there...this is the best thing I've heard from Mr. Connor. Artists like Concept, Deviant Species and Neural Rectifier Syndrome bring scratchy sounds and acid splatters creating a futuristic mix. It's got a dark flow that remains consistent through the entire album. Stratagem is one of my favorites as it is rumbler that grows in intensity, slowly building with some wicked power. I highly recommend it and even though it was made 6 years ago it holds up well. Psyshop Beatspace Mdk
