This is most definitely a return to the style of the previous Involver cd, that is electronic music that paints a picture. It comes in waves, and the disappears surging and gradually building to beautiful climaxes, then slowly ebbing away. Not quite as pounding and minimal as some of his more recent releases (mongoose, who killed sparky?) just well crafted progressive house. Some of the tracks are a little slow to my liking (I find sasha a little too drawn out in his live sets), but the album has a constant foot tapping and head nodding vibe to it. This is definitely getting stuck on repeat in the car, it is an album that makes the miles drift by like an ocean tide!
Enough of that pretentious reviewing, basically if you liked Involver, his recent movie soundtrack, seal clubbing, etc. The you will love this. If you really liked digweeds transitions vol 4 (and 1 &2 to a certain extent) this may be a bit too subdued for you liking...
The opener on CD1 rumbles in with Badger clocking in at just under two minutes providing the intro to Telefon Tel Aviv's 'You Are The Worst Thing In The World' (Invol2ver Remix), a gorgeous slice of laid back electronica insterspersed with breathy vocals which sets the pace of the album perfectly before seamlessly flowing into Rone's 'Flesh - another chilled soundscape that drifts smoothly forward with a soft chugging bassline. The percussion begins to build nicely on next track 'Eclipse' where Sasha and Ray LaMontage tweak twisted minimal vocals against a more familiar progressive build up with borderline tribal elements. Next up is Sasha and Adam Parker's 'Lowlife', a steady killer with full on hypnotic, gripping drive which you both expect and want to last for about 9 minutes. Not this version; after almost 4 minutes, he craftily drops Adam Parker's vocal sample mix of Charlie May's 'Midnight' in, bringing the tempo right back down before sneaking back up and slamming in Apparat 'Arcadia' (Who Killed Sparky? indeed).
Home Video continue the pace with 'That You Might' - deep, moody with some great bleeps flitting off around the treated vocals that creep in and out throughout.
Next up, Ladytron's 'Destroy Everything You Touch' gets a massive reworking by Sasha which flies off into mindbending territory with heavily treated vocal samples being squeezed to excess over a crunching bassline. It's one of those you will either love or despise.Read more ›
If I were to write a review commending Sasha on his abilities, mixing techniques and sheer class of production then you would probably be reading a 5 star review right now. Sasha continues to push his art to its limits with this sequel to the classic mix "Involver". His achievement is a fantastic mix with seemless mixing, artistic atmospheres, a smooth flowing transition between tracks and a unique selection of abstract tunes from such artists as Thom Yorke and The Engineers. My theory is that if you were to read one of the 5 star reviews of this album, they would praise these elements heavily, and rightfully so.
However, there is a little problem with Invol2ver, and indeed (in my opinion) with Sasha's recent progression from house and trance music into this minimalistic style. In short, Invol2ver is no way near as good as its predecessor due to the fact that Sasha has picked a selection of slow-moving, repetitive, flat, dull tracks boasting little more than intertwining atmoshperes and some clever little sound effects. Involver featured some magnificent melodies from tracks like Burma and Dorset Perception, some banging club tunes like Watching Cars Go By and On My Own and found the time to fit in some amazing mixing through tracks like In A State, Belong and Talk Amongst Yourselves. Conversely, the flat, repetitive sound of Invol2ver can be heard simply by listening to the track 3 Little Piggys, a long boring song with no amazing finale, no tangible melody, no brilliant drops or basslines and basically no interesting moments.Read more ›
