A first compilation from Candyflip after their first release, Wizzy Noise's album. This is a nice compilation with a solid minimal psychedelic line, but with a limping start. Still it has few killer tracks and gives us one very promising new Greek act.
The opening track I really don't like, I find it boring and I don't like the sound. Drone, a new Greek act shows some promise, a nice three phases track with a killer return from the break- I would prefer a global cut here- too long and looses the plot. Malice in Wonderland- the sample and the track name are great, the track itself doesn't do it for me. All three openers don't impress in the sound department. Igneous Sauria gets things moving with Cookies for Rookies (T4), a fast, happy and catchy groove, with constant head twisting rhythm changes surrounded by a multitude of effects. Unearthed, another new Greek name for me (how do you manage with these long surnames guys?) with a real discovery- a killer psycho track that keeps changing and evolving with good music and good samples, will be a joy to drop on the dancefloor. The kick could use a facelift, though- but I'm writing down this name for sure. Wizzy Noise do their thing, Process (T6) is a real dark atmospheric intense piece, with scratching storming splashes of sounds. Excellent. Eargear follow (T7) with a totally clubby track, but in no way you have ever heard before- totally catchy and will make you smile for sure- I just love this one, found myself using the repeat button with this on. The closing track is a breaky slow piece, nice, but not more.
