It’s hard to describe. I don’t overly enjoy or love electronic music and techno and all that sort of thing, but this is different. The sounds and music are all really just beautifully created by 45trona Ut in these songs. Everything seems to be composed in a way to get you into a feeling of a rhythm, a beat, or an emotion. The more you hear these songs, they more they grow on you, the more you get into them, the more you like them, and the more you like them, the more you listen to them…I guess you get the meaning of what I’m talking about. This is infectious, hypnotic stuff, regardless of genre!
Take the song “Let’s get Funky.” This song is downright addictive; the beat is so infectious that I found I absolutely had to move to the song, while listening to it. Ditto for the next couple tracks on the album too!
Every song on this album is unique, and no two songs sound alike. 45trona Ut really knew what he was doing when he put this album together; it’s a wonderful expression of his love for dance and electronica. Even though the overall vibe is modern and innovative, the melodies and sounds seem to have been influenced more by the great classic synth music of the 70’s, the early 80s, and then the 90s.
The complete package is best summed up as a joyful rollercoaster, reaching highpoints of happiness and dancing joy, followed by moments of highly melodical sequences. Even if you don’t constantly listen to, or particularly like techno or electronica, there is something about this album that sets it apart from the rest of the albums in this genre. It’s breathtaking, and rapidly changing, and you never know what’s coming next. Each track is well-crafted and packed with as many hooks as some electronic bands use on an entire album.
Electronic aficionados will be ecstatic about “Funkspatial,” for others it may be an acquired taste, but it’s definitely a taste you’ll be glad you acquired. Just keep an open mind. This is more than just the same repetitive techno-electronica you’ve heard. This is beautiful, original, and unique music.
Simply put, the album flows with ease and what the last song lacked the next makes up for. It’s so constant and hypnotic; it can suck the non-believer into its electronic world. “Funkspatial,” is addictive and so good, that if you call yourself a music lover and you don’t have this release by 45trona Ut, you’re lying!
