new this week at RSC
- RSC presents Richard Scott, episode 8:
A friend of mine turned me on to Gio Red a couple of weeks ago when he
slipped me the CD, Risk.O Electro, released by Greek netlabel Candyflip
back in May of this year.
Since Candyflip is known for, *ahem*, goa/psychedelic trance (which i
havent been a fan of since the Dragonfly heyday circa 95), i was somewhat
skeptical when i threw the cd in and hit play.
I am so glad i did.
It turns out this is some of the most excellent electronic music i have ever
had the pleasure of listening to.
Not quite progressive trance, not quite progressive house, not quite
electro, but easily a combination of all three, a truly unique experience in
a market saturated with one-dimensional sameness. In fact, I got the chance
to drop a few choice tracks on the dancefloor last week at Hush and the
crowd seriously went mental. This stuff is potent.
For RS008, I managed to rip the cd up into .wavs and mixed up some of my
favorites with a combination of hardware/software. I think it turned out
quite nicely. I did end up adding a few tracks from the likes of Camea, DS
and Gabriel Ananda to make 58 minutes, finally ending softly with a gem from
Ten and Tracers new release ;) .
All in all, this Ropeswingset is a heady trip down a brooding, deep, rich,
sonically diverse path. Do not miss.
