I must have been a very good boy this year, because around Christmas time I received the biggest musical surprise of the Year, Kino Oko’s “Lost Entertainment”. The person behind this record with the unpronounceable and unspellable name I’m not even gonna try to type here (I should probably shut the fuck up, my last name’s Krawczyk) is a member of BigWigs and Tromesa, two bands known for polish vodka induced madness. I always really respected BigWigs and Tromesa on an intellectual level, they dared to be different and their music was interesting and funny and very tricky, but being the cheese- and fluffmaster that I am, I couldn’t sit at home and thoroughly enjoy their work, it was just too weird and off-key for me. I always considered them the Schönberg of the trance scene, I respected them for what they are doing and thought they were great artists, but to keep the analogy Id still rather sit through an evening of Mozart then 3 hours of atonal 12-tone music.

 

Then I read in the promo section that Kino Oko created something different, incorporating melodies and a real old-skool trance feel, and I was interested. I thought to myself “If you combine Bigwigs with real old trance, the result must be pretty cool”. I listened to the samples and was even more intrigued, so when the record was released I got it right away.

 

And boy was I right!! This record rocks!!! I don’t know why nobody else has created a sound like this before, because when I listen to this record, it just makes sense. It sounds very well thought out, it is very cheesy at times (“ Dead birds in the Skyyyyyyyyyy….”), but its good cheese, because the melodies and emotions fit the tracks perfectly, its not artificial and drug-induced euphoria, but real emotions that are contrasted beautifully with the typical polish weirdness. Its like the ying and the yang, darkness and light, in short it’s a trip from the introverted “Heart of Darkness” to an extroverted sunny morning beachfestival with a big smile on your face :D

 

Also I find it very refreshing that Kino Oko on purpose stays away from the modern sterile clean compressed “power sound” that is obviously dominating the full-on scene, but that also is prevalent in all Prog-Psy releases. This record is “Low-Fi” and goddamn proud of it!! And with “Low-Fi” I don’t mean bad production, but different production. It might be hard to believe for some people, but bass lines don’t necessarily have to be “killlAAARRGHH” to rock the dancefloor. What I’m getting at is that this album has a definite old-school feel to it, it sounds very analogue and organic, compared to other psy-releases it lives and breathes like an animal. But at the same time it doesn’t sound old at all, you can clearly hear that this is 2005 material, even though it plays around with the 1995 sound dynamic.

 

Talking about 1995, one artist comes to mind that must have clearly inspired Mr. Unpronouncable. That artist is Union Jack. First of all the track “Well Done” is a clear homage to their track “Cactus” just like Ticons “Analogue H”, but Kino Oko took it into a whole new direction, he made it more psychedelic instead of more powerful and groovy like Ticon did. But other than that I get a lot of the Union Jack feel in some of these songs, the way the bass lines work, the melodic runs etc…, the major difference is that Kino Oko doesn’t use the characteristic twirling Union Jack 303’s. The melodies also seem to be very inspired by German rave- and hardtrance, they are very emotional and hands in the air type stuff, but they work like a charm and most importantly, they fit the fabric and soundscapes perfectly. When I listen to this record I just wanna be a good old raverboy with Buffalo Shoes and orange pants again and throw my arms towards the sun :P

 

I just noticed that when you do a wordcount on everything I have written above, you come to exactly 666 words. Spooky… :ph34r::o What a perfect transition to my next point! This is still the same dude who is also behind Tromesa and Bigwigs, and all the talk about melodies shouldn’t distract from the fact that this is some really trippy and sometimes almost scary shit!!! Maybe someone who’s into dark trance thinks this is scary on a Kindergarten level, but I’m a pussy, so I get scared easily. There are some really cool effects and tweaks and blurps and just genuinely strange sounds all over this record that give a really unique and sometimes dark twisted edge to these tracks, like in Metallic Mista for example. The soundwork here is really outstanding, I can’t stress this point enough!!!!! Sometimes you listen to a track and just think “now where the fuck did that just come from”, for example those weird ghost puking voices or whatever the fuck they are from “Born without Soul”. Kino Oko doesn’t have to hide behind anyone in the “sonic trickery department”, not even behind Simon Posford, I would even go so far and say his effects and tricks are a lot cooler, because they are more unique and sound more alive and less digitally dead, as is often the case with Mr. P.

 

About the single tracks, there are no bad ones on here, there’s a wide variety, some are more melodic than others, some are darker and stranger, but they all have something unique about them. My personal favourite is the very first track “Born without Soul”, it says all there is to say about Kino Oko. Im playing at a electro-techno party in January, and I cant wait to open my set with this “Bad Motherfucker” ;) I’m sure even the electro heads will go insane!!! I can’t wait…hehe. Its hard to pick out other stand-outs, there’s something I like about every track, like the groove of “Hippie Bones”, the “happy trippyness” of Atomic Corner, or the delicious cheesyness of “Dead Birds in the Sky” etc…, I think I’ll let someone else analyse the single tracks, I already wrote way too much.

 

Well, to sum it up, I made the following formula:

 

A nice dose of Union Jack + the naiveté of German Hard/Ravetrance melodies + a large helping of Bigwigs polish vodka madness + some current Cologne techno a la Dominik Eulberg or the Boxer label + a bit of electro “low-fi” feeling + sonic trickery worthy of leading IDM bands = Kino Oko “Lost Entertainment”

 

This might sound like a total walk on the edge, and it is, but Kino Oko pulls it off with amazing style and grace. This is a trance record that I would not be afraid to play to some techno-snobs I know, because it is unique, and it stays miles away from any formula that I’m aware of. And unlike other BigWigs/Tromesa stuff it’s a real pleasure to listen to even for a pussy like me! The only doubt I have is about who will buy this record. It’s a bit of everything so everyone should be able to enjoy it, but on the other hand I think it’s a very mature album that will be too much for the kiddos, and it might be too melodic for the freaks? I don’t know, I hope the other extreme will happen and the kiddos buy it for the melodies and the freaks for the weirdness :)

 

I personally think it’s a strong contender for album of the year, but then I’m always soooooo excited right after I discover something I really like :) If the excitement will stay only time can tell, but I’m very positive that just like a good wine “Lost Entertainment” will only get better, and not turn into vinegar. Thanks Mr. Unpronouncable!!!

What's this about

 

Kino Oko, better known in his hometown of Warsaw as Gregorz Magnuszewski, has been previously released as Tromesa (with Tomek Roer) and was part of the now legendary trio Big Wigs along with Jerzy Przezdziecki and Tomek. As far as I'm concerned this ensemble almost single handedly started the explosion of creativity coming from the Polish border, under the now established flag of Horns and Hoofs.

 

Composing music for over a decade starting with psychedelic rock from the 60's and 70's to electronica, Gregorz has successfully explored a number of different styles in his untiring quest for original sounds and he displays the entire repertoire here. “Lost Entertainment” marks a really interesting proposal, avoiding the roads less traveled by contemporary Psychedelia, to deliver fresh ideas soaked in nostalgia and the hippest form of retro. Add to that the horns and hoof's style and we're blurring the ideas of genres to near pointlessness.

 

 

Per-song break-down

 

 

01. Born Without Soul *

 

A homage to the 16 bit consoles way before the word PlayStation became fashionable. Twitchy-wobbly bass accompanies the classic line brooding from down-under. Bizarre voices growl and moan in pain to the main theme. It develops anthem-like qualities, subdued graciously by the melancholy of having beaten your first video-game. Commodore never sounded this good before -in it's roots anyway, even if the production has been carved to present day standards. Contrary to the name it has more soul and guts than I have heard in while...

 

 

 

02. Metalic Mista

 

The main ingredient here is the fast ‘metallic' chords taking form of the bass. The kick is thin and slender, stabbing the speakers like a pair of rusty daggers. The Metallic Mista is not as crazy as the movie named in the sample “ Cassino Royale!” nevertheless; converging opposing feelings with great ease. Not my favorite tune, those screeches bring back the 80's a bit too much for me. It's personal taste though the rest is quite decent.

 

 

03. Pasyonata *

 

That's right, the name implied a sonata. Now if we want to go by the ‘classic' definition a Sonata denotes (usually) a piece for piano… synth –whatever. It is divided in three movements: the first and the third bits moving faster. In the middle portion there is supposed to be note change, remaining melodic to the bone throughout. Mozart would have been proud.

 

 

04. Hippie Bones *

 

Slow-paced with chunky bass and a definite house spice in the mix. The Hippie Bones march unwavering in nature with a ‘like-it' or ‘change it policy'. Personally it slides to completion harmoniously without many changes, but enough gusto to keep the party going.

 

 

05. Colors of Black *

 

Let us leave our preconceptions aside for a moment: No, it is not Gregorz attempt at Dark Psychedelic. It sounds more like an IDM deviation straight from Richard D. James closet and Autechre's beat work by the intro. We do lift off back to life, with an everlasting pitchy-bendy pace. Bells sparkle soothing the whole experience. It is well churned out and anything that reminds me of IDM on top of a trance arrangement… actually making it work, deserves a thumb's up in my book.

 

 

06. Pan Prophet

 

An ingenious rhythm converging in organics, with an electro-tech feel and ambient pads. The Prophet effortlessly sheds his philosophy unburdened by any sort of build up or break. This stuff is catchy enough, without selling its soul to Beelzebub in return for more listeners.

 

 

07. Atomic corner

 

The surroundings get mysterious with the sudden switch of the ‘next' button. It is now that part of the game you have to get through without much joy, doing the nitty gritty stuff before we can move on to more rewarding activities. I don't really like the lead a bit too off-key and repetitive with strange spaced out breaks. The bass definite saves the track… but that's just me.

 

 

08. Industry of Broken Parts *

 

A healthy kick with a bass on multi-tap undulating through the beat work. This kind of trance I can digest without fear…It seems deceptively simple while keeping a certain key elements with tasty subtleness. As enjoyable as it might be, it does not seem to take me anywhere though. Whether that matters to you or not is relative.

 

 

09. Well Done *

 

The plucked organic bass here is just gold. And the kick is such damn bouncy, it sounds like a stripped-down version from the hard-core days. It peaks with Carmina Burana type of chants, and 80's guitar straight out past TV show. You know, the budget science fiction one… it's silly, but it's much fun!

 

 

10. Dead Birds in The Sky *

 

Would it be despicable to say those vocals by the end remind me of Cher 's vocodic style through the mid nineties? Now before you go running for the hills… I just want to say it does not bother me and I was never Cher 's fan. Ultimately it develops with such an amazingly simple hypnotism; it really does not pain me sticking around for the whole track. So I won't be buying Cher, but I have been playing this one a lot. Deservingly so too.

 

 

11. Man upon the Rainbow

 

Gregorz closed the compilation with a sound more reminiscent to ‘Well Done' than previous explorations. How does he fuse the 80's futurism, and old school rave making it sound like he still means business is a mystery to me. Judging by that description, why do I enjoy it is an even a bigger conundrum. I can almost hear some Quietman influences in the synths and this type of work apparently still puts a smile in my face. We don't forget where we came from…

 

* Favourites

 

 

All and all

 

Presentation-wise we find Inga Burina's work like is tradition now in HnH's and Boshke, molding her work to fit the theme of the album with her own spark. It's much like buying a new model of Converse sneakers. You know a bit what to expect, there is a classic nostalgic feel to it, but it's always so trendy. If you need a break from the industrial type of techno, back to funky town Kino Oko is gold in deed. Best purchase in a while…

Kino Oko roxxor! :) If you liked V/A-Idea FX - you are definitely going to like this one. Very original and never boring, this album is one of the best in tech/minimal style this year.

didn't like this album as much as Idea FX.. too retro and housey for me, with some exceptions.

 

btw, Horns and Hoofs are based in Russia, not Poland. The last V/A was the first one with Polish artists on it. Usually is't all Russian tech.

I enjoyed this album a lot because it's so unique. Whether it's housy or whatever I don't care :-P/

 

"Born Without a Soul" (1) and "Industry of Broken Parts" (8) are my favorites on this disc.

where i live house, tech-house, and micro-house are the some of the most popular genres of music, and i'm so fucking sick of them, grrrrr..

 

this album just gets a bit too close to that sound for my comfort.. i need more tweak.

Tasteful, understated, at times whimsical, bubbly optimistic fun stuff. It's like a well-dressed champagne toast to the new year! An inspired piece of work, for the most part.

 

8.5/10 - worth buying.

Kino Oko - Lost Entertainment

 

Posted Image

 

Artist: Kino Oko

Title: Lost Entertainment

Label: Horns and Hoofs

Catalog: H&H CD 005

Released: 2005

 

 

Tracklist:

 

1.Born Without Soul

2.Metalic Mista

3.Pasyonata

4.Hippie Bones

5.Colors of Black

6.Pan Prophet

7.Atomic Corner

8.Industry of Broken Parts

9.Well Done10.Dead Birds In the Sky

11.Man Upon The Rainbow

 

Kino Oko is Grzegorz Magnuszewski, perhaps best known for being part of Bigwigs. This is his debut solo album, released mid-desember last year on Horns and Hoofs. The label really suprised me with Idea FX earlier last year. After a few offerings I didn't really like, this was highly enjoyable... Thus I had hopes that this would live up to the standards of the above mentioned compilation.

 

Let's have a look at the tracks....

 

01: Born without a soul

The album starts of slowly in a pretty and dark atmospheric way. It's quirkey and weird, and throughout the introduction you get hints to what you are about to experience. It slowly builds and squeaks around, and although it's all happening at a pretty slow bpm I can see this working both in the sofa and on the dancefloor. I've seen this album reffered to as "retro" an this track really brings out the child in me. If you've played Comodore64 and know how a sid-chip sounds you'll know what I mean. For me this is like the ultimate feel-good track... Awsome opening!

 

02: Metallic Mista

On "Metallic Mista" it all gets kranked up a notch, as this is slightly harder than the opener. It's got a pretty haunting bassline, but for me this is most of all about atmosphere and groove. It strikes me as a rather cinematic piece of music, which is only amplified by the somewhat charicature-like sample uttering the words "Casino royale!". Oh...and did I mention how utterly groovy this is? Yes I did, didn't I...Well, It's worth repeating!

 

03: Pasyonata

Pasyonata opens the way I like my psy. Melodic, atmospheric and spacey. That's not to say this is anything like any other melodic psytrance you've heard lately(or possibly at all.....). The playfull melodies, the naive bass, all those weird samples...It all just seems to fit so perfectly. I bet if you just played each element alone this would sound extremely simple, but put together there's a complexity to this that should also appeal to the psyheads... I really have no clue about what to compare this to...It's good though...It's really, really, really, really good!

 

04: Hippie Bones

With "Hippie Bones" it's time to turn all that energy towards the dancefloor. This is a housy sounding corker, where the main focus seems to be on percussion. One could be fooled to think that this sounds just like any other track you'd find while hopping around the comecial clubs...It's not entierly true, though, as this as that little extra "edge". Things are tweaked a little more, the atmospheres are more trippy and the basslines are better. This isn't my favourite track on the album, but that really doesn't really say much...Very nice!

 

05: Colors of Black

As "Colors of Black" opens the mood shifts dramatically. As we start off we're thrown deep into Idm-landscape with strange braks and an eerie atmosphere. As the main beat kicks in, I find myself wondering if I'm all of a sudden listening to hallucinogens mi-loony-um, as I think the beat sounds pretty simular. The simularities end there, however, and on top of this trancey and hypnotic beat he continue to paint his idm'ish soundscapes. Is it any good, you ask? Yes, kids - This is what music should sound like.

 

06:Pan Prophet

"Pan Prophet" is another one of those very groovy tracks on this album. The first few minutes is mainly pretty hard percussion together with some pretty drifting and atmospheric synthsweeps. It works really well, and gets your head nodding really good. Then he pulls one of the oldest idm-tricks in the book. He adds a single-tone-extremely-high-pitch-bleeeeeeeeep, causing some severe pain to your ears. Well, thats not the entire trick though, the hard part is to remove it at excactly the right moment. And boy, does he ever manage to do this! It's like a ton of weights is lifted from your shoulders, and I'm willing to bet quite alot on this being extremely effective on a dancefloor. The last few minutes of the track is marvelous, no complaints!

 

07: Atomic Corner

This is one of the "harder" tracks on the album. Well, hard is the wrong word offcourse, this album never really turns hard. It's a very playfull piece, lot's of small melodies drifting around together with a whole lot of effects and weird noises. It's highly organic, and as other reviewers have pointed out before me it sounds more analouge than alot of music comming out these days(This is a prominent feature of the entire album by the way). The way it shifts in mood, from pretty dark, to plain weird, to fun and even towards a bit "scaryness" towards the end just adds to my admiration and appreciation. Great!

 

08: Industry of Broken Parts

This far into an album such as this, you often get the feeling that there will be no more suprises. Kino Oko however, does not seem to stop and pulls out yet another rabbit from his hat. This stormer of a track is one of many favourites here. It's atmospheric to say the least, constantly changing and morphing. The great hypnotic bassline together with all the other bubbeling makes this truly outstanding. It's like it's litterally bubbeling over with life...Excellent!

 

09: Well Done

All the tracks on this album could well have had the title of this track and gotten away with it. Yet again Kino Oko proves on "Well Done" that he has a remarkable understanding of music. This is something as seldom as an über-funky trance track! Elements involved are a bassdrum you haven't heard the like of since the 1990's, a mixture of instruments such as a real bass(Sampled or played I dont know - but it ceirtanly works!) and something that I'm not sure what is. Could be a synth, could be a guitar. Whatever it is - it's cool. Well done!

 

10: Dead Birds in the Sky

This track starts very mechanical. Imagine the diciples of Optimus prime having a linedance-session. It's all rythmically driven and pretty hypnotizing. One third into the track we move over into more atmospheric territory, and a child-like vocoder-infected voice starts singing "dead birds in the sky". From this point on and out its all about naive fun, couppled with massive amounts groove and harmony. Another sweet track!

 

11: Man Upon The Rainbow

This album has been so much about fun and playfullness, and why finish it any other way? "Man upon the rainbow" is synthesizer-heaven, and on any other album this would have been utterly wrong. Here it just seems to find it's place among the other tracks, and allthough it's not really my favourite here it's pretty damn good!

 

Final remarks:

I've had this album for almost a month now, and I must say - it's holding up extraordinarily good! It's pretty much been my soundtrack to 2006 so far, and I just can't seem to get tired of it. It's got this really nice timeless quality to it, and find my favourite tracks shifting from day to day. Compared to for instance Idea FX(Which I liked a lot) I enjoy this much more. If this progression continues I can't even begin to imagine what the next thing H&H releases will sound like. As mentioned, I've had this only for about a month, but it's been a long time since I've been as excited about a trance-album as I am about "lost entertainment". In my book this is one of the top releases from 2005....Highly recomended!

I will not be very original saying that it is a surprising album, really! It sounds funny sometimes (the ending of the tracks for example), dark, light, weird... lots of variations in this album, variations in the tracks and a variation of electronic styles as well, old trance, electro, deep techno...

I am amazed by Kino Oko's work, from what I hear, he spends a lot of time in his tracks, and does not lack of inspiration.

Thumbs up, really.

My favourite tracks are : 1 (special track, a must have), 7 (catchy track), 8 (nice dark atmosphere), and my favourite : 10 (beautiful track, really).

Yes yes yes.

 

This disc is bearing up well.

 

Tracks that did nothing for me in particular are now holding their own as superior works. E.G., the clear melody in track 3 against the descending bass backdrop, a-one/two/three; a-one/two/three, etc. The playful minimally cheesy exuberance of tracks 4 and 5 (? - the one that inexplicably uses the 'CASINO, ROYALE' smarmy barker voice sample.

 

9+/10 and gaining. This could be a masterpiece that I haven't fully understood yet. Recommended for everyone. You will not be disappointed in the long term.

extremely psychedelic

it's amazing

not following the hype

not being like the rest

not trying to score with the majority

just a huge continue of psychedelic influences

 

9/10 very enjoyable to listen at home

reminds me a bit of the crossover between goatrance and psychedelic trance in the years 2000

the minimal but still always one sound drawing your attention and no big full climaxes and certainly not too fast

off course this is better then 2000, 6 years later the technology has given us the oppurtinity to create the psychedelic concept in many ways :)

this is one oddball album, I'll give you that... it's wierd, but not in the wierd-finnish psytrance way, it's just different. As others said, you can recognize some old trance elements here, although IMO there aren't much oldschool goa influences, more like old pre-94 german trance influences (mostly stuff released on Eye Q and Platipus). Although I can't really say if I like this album, there are certainly a lot of original ideas in it, but the overall result is kindof lacking consitency IMO and sounds a little too "goofy" for my tastes. And the bassline melody kicking in at 4:00 in Metalic Mista which is a blatant ripoff from Danii Minogue - Who do you love now WTF IS THAT???? Still, I applaud their overall ingenuity :)

 

7,5/10

Not an album I'd recommend warm heartedly but if you're tired of having your psytrance come in just 3 flavors (dark psy, full-on and progressive) then this is definatley one for you :)

 

[EDIT: OK, after some more thorough listening I've realized that this album actually grows on you... Whereas at first the tracks seem just a bunch of incoherent ideas thrown in there together, after a (long) while it all starts making sense :) Current grade: 8,5/10 and rising ;) Also I think it might help if I mentioned that this album is definatley one for home-listening and not for the dancefloor... ]

I can hardly wait to play track 7 over a proper sound system with plenty of people around. The under-the-radar gossamer melody he builds out of overtones ought to blow some minds. Most won't know what's hitting them, they'll just know that they feel "different" and if they notice, that their breathing is shallow.

Yeah, i get that feeling on various parts of this album, sounds that come out of nowhere and then they are just there. Kino Oko somehow achieves to create an amzing plasticity and three-dimensionality.

Just want to say that I just heard this and I have to say that this is the most interesting trance album I've heard for some time... Definitely the best of 2005 for me.

 

Just amazing electro/techno/amiga sound :D
