Micronaut - Europa (cd Positron Records Inc)Posted on 04/05/05
This is the 4th album of the Chicago-based Micronaut. Their work is an eclectic piece of electronics, which really covers different styles. The production of this album is really outstanding and that’s definitely an element you’ll easily perceive. Starting in a rather ambient way with remarkable cuts like “For once always” and “Mister Tronic”, they than experience with some vague dub influences leaded by bombastic rhythms on “Normalized” to mix dark ambient moods with scratches on the more experimental sounding “Invention 1/Microprocessor” to the enigmatic “Darkness”. There’s some contradiction in style running through this last piece for the mix of deep electronic bass sounds and the use of a cello, but the alchemy of this band makes everything possible! The 2nd part of the album becomes really interesting for exploring more danceable fields. They now come pretty close to the style of Chemical Brothers without delivering a copy of this great band. There’s a terrific mix between dance vibes and psychedelic influences reinforced by guitar riffs. We here get some amazing pieces like “Perdition” and the “DJ Blitz 4/4 remix” of the same song, but also “Failsafe”, “Calculate” and “Institutional”. By the exception of a few vocals, the entire album remains instrumental, but never stops to fascinate the open-minded listener I am! www.positonrecords.com (DP:8)DP.
