Honey, we have visitors...

Hey guys, Boba Fettuccini here, your highly-opinionated musical bastard as always. Today I am going to be outspoken about an artist who has irritated me and interested me since I first found him on Myspace.



This guy managed to make it on to everyone who's anyone's top friends list with crappy house songs that were obviously made with default loops in Make Music Studio 17 or whatever. Back in the beginning, I commissioned a remix from him, and it was a load of bunk. Who is this guy and why do people like his crap? Why did he get on to a GXC compilation when his perosnal logo was a ripoff of Daft Punk's logo? WHY

Well he's got an EP single out now... I downloaded it out of curiosity. Visitors. With over 1000 plays on the profile, I thought it might actually be good, but it wasn't. I won't post it here. EVER.

However, Rapid Sound managed to get remixes from some pretty awesome dudes: The Phantom's Revenge and Hibtin. And let me tell you, both of them took a totally MEH track and turned it into something worth listening to. And that's really saying something, because for the most part, TPR's glitching seems excessive and irritating.

Rapid Sound, if you read this, I have nothing against you. Just your music.

Whaaaaaaat. Visitors is awesome. D: Overrated and overhyped, yeah, but awesome.

I respectfully disagree. The only awesome thing on that EP was the remixes.

thank you Bob Fettuccini for having standards. Seriously, it seems like everyone these days just freaks out when they hear ANY house song.

Ya. I don't even like TPR's remix much, and I haven't heard the original but if TPR can't make it good it must be bad. when I first heard the TPR remix I thought man the guys at ilictronix are gonna go nuts over this just cuz it's TPR but I agree with anonymous. It's nice to see standards :)

I have lots of standards when it comes to music. Some of them are double standards though... I mean, Miracle by Cascada is one of my favorite songs :P

i love TPR, but he OD'd on the glitch this time.

I personally felt that the TPR remix was missing something. I don't know what, but it just felt a bit to bland.

I think it would have been an awesome track, even the glitching, if it just had that little 'spark' there that is missing. Though I don't blame TPR for this, I blame the original.

i think the way TPR used the glitch is to destroy a boring original, sometimes you have to destroy an old factory to build a new skyscraper, and you don't use an hammer but dynamite, that's the way i thing the thing
