Album Review
Captain Dee
Reviewed 2005-02-17
This is one of the better free net-label releases I’ve ever stumbled upon (thanks to Gianluca for the recommendation).

Kickass, densely textured trip-hop from two Finnish guys. Murky & thick, but low key vibe with dope downtempo beats and tons of amorphous samples and jazzy licks. Picture a combination between Blockhead, DJ Cam, and Kid Loco.

Favorite Tracks: The whole fucking thing!

- Captain Dee, Feb. 2005

**1. Killer shaker trip-hop beat, low key piano riff, a variety of other melodies jangle about. Atmospheric vocal “ahs” float in the ether. (5:50)
*2. Hard-hitting beat, hypnotic guitar loop, horn riffs, vocal chants. (5:26)
*3. Wobbly, trippy vibe. Sick drum beat that later goes doubletime, smooth horn lick, chimes. (2:46)
**4. Thick ambience, uptempo trip-hop goodness, distant piano chords and horn riffs, enticing chimes. Towards the end, washed out, trippy Boards of Canada-ish melody. (4:27)
**5. Touches of turntablism, catchy guitar work, dramatic background ambience, “old school” horn sample. Dope! (3:54)
*6. Wistful feel. Prominent chiming, more vocal ambience, more echoing horn. Beat intensifies halfway through – nice! DJ Shadow-ish. (4:23)
