5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, British, bargain electronica!, 3 Nov 2004
This review is from: Everything Is Green (Audio CD)
Okay, so there's a few non-British artists on this compilation, but in the face of stiff competition from some very good, consistent electronica lables from the US and Europe, Toytronic are continuing the line of great British electronica. Still overshadowed and presumably outsold by Warp, Toytronic have nonetheless still managed to carve out a niche with some awesome releases which have at their core beautiful sounds and beautiful melodies, and this CD provides nothing less.
In a time when a lot of electronica releases are becoming too cerebral, too experimental, too bland or just too cold, Toytronic is putting out albums which contain real emotion and warmth. Listening to Everything Is Green is an uplifting experience from the very first listen. The music appears deceptively simple because of this but the structures are every bit a complex and carefully woven as most Warp releases.
Artists featured on the CD include, among others, the always excellent Gimmik, Low Profile Society and Abfahrt Hinwil, who provides the brilliant title track.
This compilation comes in at over 78 minutes, with 16 tracks. When you consider the quality of music contained on this disc, and if you have any liking for electronic music, then this must be considered the best bargain around. This is an excellent doorway to the rest of the Toytronic back catalogue - don't miss this one.
