Album Reviews
Eklectra is a compilation almost wholly recorded by artists from Ireland. A further commonality between the musicians involved is warm and melodic electronica. It's mission accomplished too with better results than one could reasonably expect from a relatively small community. At the beginning a great feeling of serenity is apparent with Jimmy Behan, Halfset and Townparks Foundry all providing music that Minotaur Shock fans will appreciate. Ebauche and Schtat offer a soundtrack for space travel; the former resembling a thunderous take off, the second simulates floating in a far away galaxy. A sequence of 3am atmospheric vibes is then rudely interrupted by Colourfast's Funkstorung-inspired deviations and the briliant cinematic hip-hop of Formica v MJX's 'Bloodrush' is the most dramatic moment here and then calmness is restored once more by Somadrone's sonambulant drum and bass. Overall, a fine testament to the talents of the Emerald Isle.
