World (Step Inside My Dream) – Single by Fat Mavis

The first time I saw the film “Trainspotting", I clearly remember its music, with the track Born Slippy, by Underworld, while hearing the deepest emotions of the group, I fell in love with the song. But this single, just released by Fat Mavis takes me back to that era during the 90’s. Fat Mavis sends us tracks now and then, so it was a real treat to hear this one. We have a mix between Pet Shop Boys, elements of classic dance, UK pop and electro. With a collaborative effort of Fat Mavis and friends, vocals from local musicians in the London area. The track takes you to the edge of Techno, lights flashing in the club, under the dark guise of the nightlife, and finishes off with a nice shot of sequined sequences. Spoken and repeated vocals continue with this catchy tune.  We hope to hear more from him in the near future.

Uncles of Wise – Flyt

By Michael O’Morah

Uncles of Wise have landed with a paradoxically energetic yet relaxing EP entitled Flyt, released by Weatnu Records. Spawned from the Trivia Corporation. Uncles of Wise have been creating an exquisite brand of Electronica, House, Techno, Ambient and Dub since 1994 by direction of solo Sheffield artist, who simply goes by the same name.
Due to the eclectic style and methods by which Uncles of Wise composes music, I found it difficult to put my finger on any direct influences for this EP. However, Uncles of Wise have revealed, Underworld, Orbital, deadmau5, Daniel Avery, Chemical Brothers, The Black Dog and The Orb to be some of his favorite Artists. Now, it would be no surprise where I to learn that The Orb, Deadmau5, Chemical Brothers and the like, led Uncles of Wise to soar into these Techno-spheric Skies, but they are certainly a unique species themselves.
After I listened to the EP, Flyt, I decided to do a little reflecting back through the Uncles of Wise Discography. As indulged in this nostalgia, I could detect faint traces of Panopticon, and Circles evincing that Flyt has kept the line of Heredity strong and cogent. Uncles of Wise stand true to the’ Musical Style the UK artist has developed while ratcheting down the vocals a bit.
This Minimalist approach is most alluring, effectively enveloping the listener in a vortex of swirling, pulsating rhythms that lift you out of Urban drudgery. Flyt is an ambient journey that can whiz one through fast-moving Synthesizer Sequences which ripple by and spiral through scales of irresistible syncopation to the Rhythm of a clap and foot-thumping bass-driven Techno House and Big Beat. Meanwhile beckoning Female Vocals slip in and out with sultry echoes of siren song through the wormholes of your Conscious Mind.
I found the experience of listening to the three tracks of the EP to be an very engrossing experience. It felt warm and comfortable like I was ensconced in a booth near the back of the Mezzanine of a posh nightclub, while enjoying my drink with an old Friend or some new Companion! If you’re into Techno on the mellow side with a hot-house beat, then Flyt by Uncles of Wise will certainly take you where you want to be. Flyt is available on Weatnu Records.

Album Reviews: Lie Craze: We won’t ever be saved here.

‘We Won’t Ever Be Saved Here’ Whoa. The opiate swoon of opener, ‘Care for Yourself’, has me addicted from the outset: a sonic haze of shoegaze electronica, reverbed snares and a voice that recalls the lazy drawl of My Bloody Valentine or Ride without the guitars. Fantabulous stuff, a perfect beginning to a perfect little album. Can I be more gushing here? I simply adore Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist, Lie Craze, and once again, this aging critic is lost in music. Her voice is unusual with this kind of music, which makes it truly unique. She reminds of, erm…someone – male I think, not in texture, but delivery – but the comparison remains elusive. She has that quality, the just once-removed otherness about her. Gee. Surprisingly, with her fellow conspirator in this beautiful noise, Ableton-enthusiast bumbovsky, the music of ‘We Won’t Ever Be Saved Here’ takes on odd twists and turns at every juncture. Here, it has a eurobeat pulse with a nice 80s sheen, here it’s lo-fi tech, almost Icelandic and glacial, with a real sense of field-recorded ‘acoustic’ instrumentation, the creak of a stool, real percussion, children keyboards, glocks, rattles and toys. And the violin, staccato piano chords and guitar add to the weave and weft of this rich sonic tapestry. Although people tell Lie Craze her sound resonates with the 80s, that wasn’t really her influence, born in 89 she was too young for that period to really colour her craft. She is just doing what comes naturally, achingly melodic and totally one of a kind. The music of a future past.

Album Reviews : Jazzykat: Think about your future

Eclectic Chillout/Electronica Artist: Jazzykat.

Jazzykat lets a little sunshine into these bleak, wintry days in Northern England with her new ep ‘Think About your Future’.

No disappointment on this release, all Kat’s traits are intact: the smoky jazz inflections, the house beats, her pure sense of melody and those pristine synth textures.

Opening with the titular track, an almost Plastikman sparseness takes our dancing bones and rattles them into life, before the strident piano vamping and those typical JK synth lines take sinewy control. The bass-dominant ‘Main Street’ is in Orbital territory circa the classic Brown Album era. My body is flung into hedonistic orgiastic delight, with my head reeling from the nostalgia and thrills of discovering new sounds. Surely that’s impossible.

Hell no, JK is a expert at touching on the past and making it fresh, always “thinking about the future”. This is jazzhop (for want of a better term), of the finest ilk. And even when you can’t imagining it getting better, it fricking does, ending on the ep high of ‘Next Exit’.

Stripped back of all gimmicks and frills, ‘Think about your future’ re-tools and re-imagines all the tropes of modern dance musik (Italian House, techno, electronica) and re-invigorates this jaded listener and non-dancing wallflower into wanton toe tapping abandon. I forget myself.

Dance, Under-grounders, dance. Dance yourself back to the future. Knock yourselves out.
