3.0 out of 5 stars mmm - half decent electronica on mu, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eero Johannes (Audio CD)
a new purchase on amazon as had pre-listened to some of the tracks and liked a few of the busier denser tracks here. Finnish electronica producer -Eero Johannes "sounds like suomi" it says on his myspace page + well that may be partly correct - im not sure at this juncture. but sporting nice n zingy artwork, crisp production +typeface graphics is one thing ,+also a Planet Mu release usually guarantees at least half way inventive beats n electronica. and so it is here just that unfortuntaley - half way interesting.. winsome wonky keys n samples, post-house, slightly off the wall post-clubbing beats n textures that for me dont really add up overall into either a great head-nod house or techno lp nor all out wiggy out there experiemental release.

not easily fitting into any category is no bad thing of course- neither house,micro-house,uk funky,idm ,breakcore ,d n b, idm nor dub step. Johannes approaches a sound like er no-one i can quite think of. its ok so far after a few listens, but doesnt really get close to my current favourites - autechre (still going strong), clark (on warp),martyn,momolake or jimmy edgar or the minimal eclecticism of farben or villalobos. strong beats, melodies or inventive weirdness are largely struggling to be heard here. overall - this cd is veers towards average electro-funktronica aimed at the weekend bar crowd. later tracks actually save this cd from being pretty average as Johannes delves into deeper, more complex electronic textures n beats similar in places to Clark on warp (that s intended as a compliment by the way) but just doesn't go deep enough.

it s ok, but the above acts should be or already be in yr beats/electronica collection before trying this .
