Dextro's album is effectively a homage to Ulrich Schnauss with added spoken word elements. This isn't such a bad thing - I personally count his 2003 album 'A Strangely Isolated Place' among my all-time favourites. Nevertheless, Dextro's release merely creates the impression that you've heard this done before, and the emotive signature themes, while undeniably effective, seem predictable as a result. The other flaw is the length of the tracks, in many cases dragging on to around 8 minutes. This is excusable in anything marketed towards DJs, but for home listening it becomes interminable, and I can't see much of a role for this in a club.
In fairness, there are elements of progress, such as a more liberal use of samples, and a slightly more incisive aspect to some of the tracks that sets them apart from Scnauss' signature aural blur. Some of them could easily be mistaken for tracks by Air, but again, this praise must be tempered with acknowledgement that it's been done before.
If you find yourself impatient for the forthcoming Ulrich Schnauss album, then by all means buy this to fill a hole in your listening schedules. It does combine elements from several artists to move the field along incrementally, but overall the outcome is agreeable rather than revolutionary.
The music has a mixture of live and analogue electronic instruments, which gives it quite a 'live' earthy sound. It's also quite eerie and unsettling at parts and has the effect of taking my mind somewhere else. The songs have dense structures that at times run for more than nine minutes (Check out the epic `track 'destroy the future of all mankind'). This album also contains quite a few 'side steps' where the music takes a sudden refreshing change.
Consequence music just gets better every time I listen to it and is currently wearing out my CD player.
Dextro is the work 27 year old Scottish audio-head Ewan Mackenzie. Consequence Music is the debut album under his dextro name and it consists of beautiful, melodic electronica. The album is largely instrumental (there are some voices/vocals, although little that could be described as legible lyrics) with sampled recordings, guitars, piano, melodica and other strange unrecognisable sounds. It comprises of adventurous music made by a musical brain rather than a mathematical one, and is really unworthy of words alone. If you dig deep down into the soul of these tracks and you'll find a group of compositions packed with detail and beautifully strong melodies. There is a fuzzy, droney sound to this album, and sure enough you begin to hear hidden depths upon every listen. A true grower and an inspiration.
