5.0 out of 5 stars One of 2001's best discs: A progressive must, 24 Mar 2003
By 
This review is from: Logic Trance 5 (Audio CD)
This is one of the under-the-radar gems of 2001. It’s bound to get buried within the mass of releases this year, and being part five of the solid (if unspectacular) Logic Trance series won’t help bring the noise from press outlets. Factor in John Debo’s debut Chrome 01 seemed unremarkable, and perhaps few could have expected the raw power of Logic Trance 5.
The scaling synth chords are checked at the door, as are hooks, singing, all but some scraps of melody. To move off the power of groove, that’s what Debo showcases here. Layers of percussion (‘Of Course,’) backbone quivering basslines (‘Something else,) and heavy beats that kick in (‘Dockside’) with twisting sound effects spread throughout. Spotless mixing ensures one smooth ride to the beat of a drum.
Best yet, the dozen tracks presented are underground tunes that haven’t popped up elsewhere, a tribute to spotless vinyl-searching and the depth of music that exists. And let’s be honest, it would have been so easy to throw in some massive British tunes just to stir up interest or help in promotion.
Devoid of glam or glitzy artists Logic Trance 5 certainly won’t crack any bestseller lists. But for those looking for stripped to the essence minimal energy…ah, what a delight. Fans of progressive house or the Bedrock sound need to get this.
