G.H. Hat: “Piano Jam 2 (Ode To Kygo)” – an authentic human expression

Modern acceptance, or lack there of, in electronic music hardly comes as a surprise. Just look back through the history of music and how the 17th century technology spread. Musicians no longer had to master a particular bow technique on the violin or cello in order to play the perfect note – They just had to press a key. Can you imagine the horror of the purists at the time? They probably all thought that the piano was destroying the soul of the music. What it did though was simplify things. It reduced what was really essential and human. People

HR Live At CBGB’s 1984 – an essential part of alternative music and punk culture

HR is most well known as the lead singer of revolutionary reggae punk rock band Bad Brains. In their day Bad Brains could have been easily mentioned in the same breath as The Ramones, The Sex Pistols or The Clash, such was their greatness. Yet the band has evolved many times in its long history, playing across many genres of music including jazz, hardcore punk, alternative rock and reggae. HR has been making music since 1976 with Bad Brains, and along the way until today, he has been acclaimed for his reckless punk screaming just as much as he has

Callum Crighton: “The Rose” – a strong ear-catching melody

Even while everything I know about my musical taste should violently reject the cheese-camp synth pop and adorable mainstream swoon songs of the 80’s, I’ve enjoyed that music ever since I was first tricked into listening to the smooth, velvety crooning of the Brit pop chart invasion during that period. I can’t really explain why I loved that music so much, I guess for the same reason people eat cheesecake: It’s loaded with sugar, almost unbearably sweet, and probably isn’t the healthiest for you, but goddamn if it doesn’t make you feel so good inside when you eat it up.

BogglesWorth: “NERVE” – the resonance between the melody and the rhythm is comprehensively hypnotizing

I have thoroughly enjoyed the majority of BogglesWorth’s previous works, and his latest release – the “NERVE” Ep – does not disappoint in any way. Every track is easy to listen to. It’s one of those productions that you will enjoy playing in its entirety, not just download a one or two tracks to your iPod and forget about the rest. This is good old fashioned Progressive Electronic Music from BogglesWorth. And if like me, you were in anticipation of any new stuff after his previous releases, this 6-track electronic exploration will be a great addition to your library.

From track one, “Beeper”, I instantly liked the creative synth use and the modulated bass movements, while the resonance between the melody and the rhythm is comprehensively hypnotizing. And it just get better from there on out. As a whole, “NERVE” is full of dense bass-lines, heavy drum hits, and riveting breakdowns. BogglesWorth is able to produce thick soundscapes punctuated by driving drumbeats. The sum total of this is a quality Ep with solid replay value.

The best way to listen to this is while driving or exercising; as it is upbeat enough to keep you energized but the overall lack of vocals lends itself beautifully to becoming superb background music to activities that need to keep your senses operative on all levels without being overly intrusive.

The music on “Bill Clinton” and the title track, “NERVE” can set you off into a dreamy bliss or make you bob your head to its catchy synth riffs and booming drum-lines. The rhythm never gets too monotonous to bore and the build-break-drop patterns iterate so quickly that it almost produces melodies of their own. BogglesWorth proves that he can make music that is equally well-suited as a soundtrack for work or for play, with “NERVE”. If you dig perfectly cultivated distortion, fat beats and catchy tunes, then this is the stuff.

“NERVE” is an electronic Ep that’s crafted from pure awesome. The drums and bass-lines in “Scottie’s California Cornflakes” and “E.Z.” are spectacular, and the electronica in “Blue Tuesday” is amazing to say the least. This is music which washes over you, oozes into your soul, and digs its way into your sub-consciousness. “NERVE” is best listened to with some serious volume or quality headphones. Not to mention that a couple of tracks here will well and truly really blow the club dance-floor to shreds!

Once again BogglesWorth delivers an extremely well-produced and put together release. His mesmerizing beats and interwoven layers will make you see electronic music in a different way. Each song on “NERVE” can stand alone, and yet each song fits perfectly next the others. The entire Ep is solid. BogglesWorth knocks it out of the park with this one!
