A new vinyl from Ticon with two new tracks as a teaser for their new album expected in March 2003. Ticon have been releasing quite a lot on compilations in different labels and in different names (also as NDSA) and somehow, while producing very good dancefloor material, failed to innovate. So what does this EP tells us about that much-expected album?
Waiting for the Knights on the A side is a powerful crunchy piece of music with grabby groove, airy atmosphere and powerful crunchy moving sounds. Strong and extremely dramatic break in the middle turns it into quite a powerful dancing experience (Iíve tried) with a lot of power and feel and quite an optimistic feel. A real dancefloor hit.
The B side- There Is No Plan- we get a totally grabbing percussive Ticonish groove right from the start, unfortunately it is topped by banal lifeless melodic lines radiating no emotion, and pretty much get lost. Well, B sides are usually either leftovers or experimental different tunes. I prefer the second type of course.
