Review: Chris Roman aka 214 continues his long association with Frustrated Funk thanks to this fine serving of outer space electro. "Growing Old Together" resounds to a resonating, acid-heavy bass and ghostly synths, with 214 moving towards the space occupied by ERP. "Last Dance" is denser, with Roman delivering a murky rhythm that resounds to dark tones and moody textures. Changing tact once again, "Dislocated" puts a focus on bleak, high-paced rhythms and moody bass tones, while on "Voice Check", he reverts to the atmospheric sound of "Growing Old Together", this time with a more reflective approach.
Review: You shouldn't like things because people tell you're supposed to... But in the case of 6Blocc's two-part homage to one of the best TV shows to be made in the last 10 years we suspect you'll love it. If you know Blocc's MO, you'll already have this in your cart: a deep dig into the series haunted 80s sonic aesthetic weaved together with stacks of jungle motifs and mischief. No stone left unturned; cuts such as "Get Out" hit with deep dungeon finesse while others such as "Mindflayer" go straight for the soul with lavish pads and overwhelming amounts of emotion and others like "Portal" taps back into the original rave foundation that set the framework for everything we love today. 6Blocc smashes it again.
