Well.. i delayed a bit to post this review because i decided to listen to each track at least 5 or 6 times in different situations, in order not to make mistakes or say something unfair.

All the tracks are very nice and have story, what is important, not just a audio layout with elements thrown up without logic. But i'd just mention that some specific instruments/elements combination in some tracks didn't seem to work really well in my opinion. Let's go to the reviews:

1) You Know Alex
- Well, this track has a kind/style of intro that i really like, just like if someone was tunning to a radio station, searching for something and finally founds the FaxiNadu track hehehe.. the kickstart comes with a nice ambientation atmospheres and a snare drum sequence. The progression comes slowly but with consistency, creating a night concept of this track, using very nice elements to make a dark atmosphere, specially the scream voices, until 4:51 when there's a synthline coming up that just didn't fit well with the idea of the track until that time, in my opinion, bringing a melodic anti-scary mood until 5:44, when it ends and the dark mood comes again. The best of the tracks imo are the atmospheres and ambientations, creating a coherent history over a dark mood. The lead in 6:37 is useless imo, it does not fit with the track main idea and also makes the track longer in the end, the "afterkick", making the end longer and making it hard to the dj to discover that he must start to mix before the average time. Very nice track!

2) Find The Guy
- Nice intro with a filter automation in the bassline, until the kickstart with some atmospheric vocals which introduce some kind of synth combination that comes along well with the previous track, building a nice psychedelic mood specially from 3:46 to 4:00, the best 15 seconds of the whole track in my opinion, which created a very nice lead that appear again later in the track but could be explored for a longer time. The goa-like synth that comes up around 4:22 also changes the track idea a bit, but keeps the psychedelia. The track gets no cheesy at anytime and follows the night concept until the end, except for some leads that get divorced from the main idea, i guess. Also a very nice track, specially for the beggining of the night, around 22h! Nice work!

3) Fight The Future
- The kick+bass style in the beggining reminds me Bon a lot, an artist that i like pretty much. But as soon as you start to get in the mood, the bass rhythm changes in 0:51 bringin more of a groove rhythm and in 0:57 gets back to how it was before. The hihat sequence that comes in 1:04 seems to be a bit out of tempo in relation with the kick compass, i'm sure it was intentional but the result sounded a bit weird for me, just like there were 2 tracks being played at the same time but not matching (a wong mix). As i said, i was probably intentional and created a different kind of groove, but it sounded a bit strange for me, specially because it kept my attention for it during all the time. Also another ver atmospherical track, night-time directed. I'm still lead astray by that hihat line, which maybe made it hard for me to notice the other elements. Not my favorite track in the EP but still a good production.

4) Bolt From the Blue
- A quick intro with some kind of liquid atmosphere and the kickstart comes with a fat bassline and soon brings a nice hihat/snare drums sequence. The synth leads start to appear smoothly, creating groove that goes along almost the whole track. There are also nice pieces of vocal in this one, like screams with delay which create a nice and scary ambientation. A straight sequence until some kind of filters start to distort the vocals and comes the break, where a melodic line comes up, giving a melancholic touch to the track from then on, but still keeping the dark and serious mood the whole track, and again never going fluffy or cheesy. Nice one for the middle time of the night.

The producer seems to know what he does, the tracks are well constructed and the fx well apllied and used, and more stuff from him is just about to come, and i'm sure it's going to rock! Stay tuned

Favorite tracks: 1 and 2

Everything nice and suuperb...its just what bothers me is MASTERING..especially at the 3rd track ( dunno what.. fight the future or something ) really UNsyncronise track..i dont know what is that but i think its baaad monitoring and whoever mastered the track should have done better job! This mastering doesent deserve any $ its just spoiling the EP by releasing this..OK..my opinion..but story of every track is brilliant..nice ideas!!!!

go go go D-A-R-K

boom

thanks for the comments bro, all points are taken... i think in the album that came after this one ie "second in command remixes" you already hear better mastering, and in my upcoming cd you will hear it further improve.
