Album Review
Rasmus Rygaard
Reviewed 2012-11-04
Bouncy house material from Caribou’s new alias. This record is packed with excellent house tracks that vary from the straight up minimalistic jams to the extremely bouncy and exotic material or the leftfield cosmic adventures. Everything on here is absolutely top notch, extremely well-produced, great textures, and cool build-ups. I honestly liked every single track, but check out the recommendations below for some favorites. If you like anything on Crosstown Rebels, Throne of Blood, or Border Community, you’ll love this.

1) 4:27 * Dark house jam adds a bunch of glamorous soul samples for extra funkiness. Tight and extremely funky stuff.
2) 5:37 Exotic vibes. Lots of percussion and a repetitive vocal sample. Gets increasingly electronic as the track progresses.
3) 6:05 Hushed and minimalistic. Stuttering “Yeah” samples and dark synthesizer adventures.
4) 5:20 * This is some next level video game techno stuff here. Extremely cool patterns layered on top of some bouncy house beats. Great!
5) 5:40 * Bouncy disco jam, simple organ stabs. Extremely repetitive and even more funky. Has a lo-fi Daniel Wang/Loose Joints-esque feel.
6) 5:47 * Introverted feel. Multi-layered percussion, simple bass line. Builds up several smaller static-heavy peaks, only to return to the solid foundation.
7) 4:36 Minimalistic foundation, a squeaky improvised synth lead on top. Free-flowing feel, very loosely structured.
8) 4:21 * Ron Hardy meets Ramadanman for a dark and intense four minutes. Heavy percussion flying all over the place, synthesizers going left and right. Hard and heavy.
9) 6:02 Spaced-out cosmic synthesizer adventure. Drum machine pattern gradually fades in and out of focus.
