We Now Return You To Our Regularly Scheduled Planet...

I'm baaaaaack! And with another artist that's been amazingly ignored on this blog (at least, in terms of his own original work. Da Stronger was put up here recently). I'm talking about TDC's own Zach Bridier, better known by his fans as Electromatic. He's released his second full-length album, "The Return to Earth", which is the album I'll be covering today in my three-track review.



The album begins with the title track, "The Return To Earth", which begins darkly but becomes a massive, vulnerable, ambient Electro wandering. This is by far, in my opinion, the most professional-sounding track on the album, if not necessarily the best. But you decide that for yourself.

If you hear at the end, it seems to transition into another, slightly odd track. I'm getting to that. Epic Fail is by far the most fun song on the album, with some neck-snapping breakbeats behind an incredible synth that is, indeed, epic, and samples of two amateur rappers yelling their banter. The ending (with an excellent loop worth looking out for) is phenomenal.

Epic Fail is soon to be released as a digital single, as a double A-Side along with the next track. The Clay Dance (oooh, such a great name!) is sparse yet elaborate, bringing forth the image of an ancient ruin brimming with supernatural life. It contains a well-used sample of "Alive" by Daft Punk, and some powerful percussion. Definitely worth the listen!

Sampling Alive? Oh come on, I thought Electro would know better than to sample our robot masters.

He actually did a good job with the sample, in my opinion.
And glad to see this article was received so well. :)

Did you guys notice that the majority of your comments are made by you

Alex said...

Yeah, we do notice that, its not our fault that people dont want to comment. It is a bit dissapointing.

prez jordan said...

People aren't big on commenting, but we get a hell of a lot of downloads, so I'm happy

Alex said...

How do you know how many downloads we have? Id like to know that aswell.

My hit counter tells me how many times each page is visited, so I can see how many times each mp3 is clicked on, rather than streamed.

Personally, I've found I don't really care for Electromatic's stuff anymore. After he told me that he used tons of Acid Loops in his first album, i just kinda stopped enjoying it. It ruined it for me.

That was before he knew how to make his own samples. He says he hates his first one, because he says it was just random loops put together. The Return To Earth is all his original sounds and noises.
