Alien Mutation – Starship Heart of Gold / Alqa 12″

rsz_1img_4947rsz_1img_4948

This is the 1994 Ambient Space Acid 12″ single for two tracks by the hyper-prolific Jake Stephenson.
The A side track ‘Starship Heart of Gold’ is an ambient/deep trance composition that builds layers of synth and samples atop a deep thumping beat, which starts and stops throughout, each time highlighting the different sound textures and movements within the composition. A prime example of this particular style from the mid 90’s.
The B side track ‘Alqa” takes the vibe of the A side and expands on it, moving into deeper ambient territory with a beat that’s sparse and less intrusive to the synthetic soundscape. This is an interesting work which stands as yet another testament to the proficiency and skill of the producer. Something for the head, for sure …
Both tracks are here for your listening enjoyment.

Freaky Chakra – Peace Fixation 12″

FC-PF

This is the second single by Daum Bentley (under his most well known production alias) and was released on the infamous NYC label Astralwerks.
The single comes with three different remixes of the same tune, all with varying shades of spacey, tripped-out funk and fluttering sounds that are laid down in multiple layers of sonic warmth. The tracks include everything from a well place DCD sample to harsh electro breakbeats and whisping backwards synth work to other-worldly sci-fi samples and crisp drum fills.
For Me, the highlight of this vinyl is the remix by Single Cell Orchestra. Taking some of the base elements and twisting them into a spastic electrified rework, the cut stands out as something that sounds oddly frightening, yet timeless and exceptionally executed.
All three versions are here for your listening enjoyment.

DJ Icee – Energy Traxx Vol. 1

DJI-ETV1

The first release by Orlando based DJ Icee, the EP contains so many stolen samples, beats and bits that anyone would be hard pressed to name them all (or find an original bit of musicality in any of the tunes). An amalgamation of all things energetic which worked very effectively on the audience he was aiming this EP towards – ravers, DJs and critics. Truly, this is one of the most important releases in DJ Icee’s catalog. If it weren’t for the massive amount of attention this EP garnered upon its release, he might not be where he is today.
All four traxx are here for your listening enjoyment.
