V/A Trojan [Timecode]

Tracklist :

1. Artifakt – Mr D 142 BPM
2. Phyx – Spectre 145
3. CPU – Tactical Interface 147
4. Abomination & Phyx – Flatline 146
5. Absolum Vs Theoreme – Weekly Mansion 402 145
6. Hydraglyph – System Critical 145
7. Azax Syndrom & Seroxat – Big Mystery 146
8. Menog – Timecodes 144
9. Tickets – The Toy 145
Mastering by Artifakt

1. Artifakt (Matt De Nobrega) has cooked a a tune with a sad feeling, that is not so common indeed. You can especially enjoy it through the classical music harmony break around at 3’00 or also at 5’45. Around some naughty bats likely sounds make irruption. Mr D for D-pression or Dracula, as you want, is tied up with previous Artifakt’s track Nosferatu, less unpolished but more focused on the atmosphere.
2. Spectre is the typical Timecode production : energic, powerful & boisterous nevertheless Phyx (Ian Summs) this time didn’t used or abused of the barking lead or at least he modified it a bit which results fresher to me. If you appreciate cybershots sonic fireworks explosion, you’ll be served (at 2’15 & 6’36).
3. The numerous CPU (Samy Guediche) fans, from whom i don’t belong, will be pleased with Tactical Interface. Personally between the few tracks i got from this artist, i don’t see major differences, always the same squeaking lead for example.
4. In Flatline, the first think that hooked me is the rythmic, to be more precize it’s the hithat (from 0’30) & clap (from 0’40) combo rushing down the stairs effect. Around 3’15 there’s a little accelerating sound like in old tv serie with bionic man Steve Austin when he was starting to run. Actually things bolt few time later at 3’44, the melodic lead gets ,at its turn, contamined by the rushing down the stairs effect. It’s only at the very final part i could see a reason why Abomination (E.Gerson, S.Davidov) & Phyx have called this song Flatline coz things after rushing down don’t move anymore, that’s what happens with a final linear bass.
5. I wasn’t delighted by the perspective of listening an Absolum (Christof Drouillet) tune, as his productions didn’t amaze me recently. Indeed it was counting without Theoreme (Takashi Sasaki), i never listened to something from him before, and now i regret it as this cooperation is interesting & Theoreme appears as a revelation to me. Weekly Mansion 402 is a real heavy crazy night full on track, your eardrums are in the same situation the salad is, when you wring dry it in the salad spinner (listen carefully the background from 3’43). During the long break before the new spinning tempest, there’s some good psychotic twisted chimes from 5’40 & a nice siren warning sound around 7’00 announcing the paroxysmic hostilities.
6. Hydraglyph (M.Ackerman, A.Morgan) delivers in System Critical some sounds near from an electric hedge clipping (from 1’25) & the circular saw (from 4’55) in a gloomy atmosphere. A glacial church bell rings in guise of break at 2’55 soon followed by a plaintive lead at 3’40. The final (after 6’30) is very dark-tormented tasty.
7. Azax Syndrome (R Azaria) & Seroxat (O.Maoz) team up for delevering us a nightmare soundtrack where you evoluate in an haunted environnement with deaf sounds sort of ghost’s breath (like at 0’38 ) or distant gloomy invisible horse’s whynnying (at 1’04) , a glacial wind blowing (at 3’20) & some madly desesperated man cries (from 5’40)conferring an verry nice high tense feeling to Big Mystery.
8. Menog (Dani Bernardo) surfes a bit on the previous track atmosphere with tremolos in his first lead, except this very beginning of the track, it never really catches my attention. Nevertheless i must admitt it’s a perfect transition between Big Mystery & the Tickets track as it seems to take influences from both without equal their quality though.
9. Try to imagine what could be a Timecode tune for kids without any commercial compromises, you should nearly get what The Toy sounds like. Tickets (J.Summs) has found a strange lead (from 0’27) which is very astonishing to be heard on a Timecode production. Actually it consists in a happy, mischievous, light, colourful sound, indeed it represents exactly all the opposite from what we’re used from Timecode. Tickets plays with the end of The Toy, hacking it (from 5’50 ), so definitivly there’s a ludic, childish feeling residing here.

Climaxs :5,6,9
Alternative choices :1,4,7

ive been trying to find the time to write a full review on this... my house is in total disarray with holes in the floor of my studio and no internet.... 8( soon i will be settled...

but let me say just as a summary, this cd is great!
i played #s 3,5,6 at a party last weekend, all were received with full dancefloor appreciation... timecode has not let us down at all...
hope to have a couple hours in the next week to write a full report.
boom all, dont miss this one.

i second that... amazing track... in my opinion this is the best track in this cd, followed by phyx-spectre...           We meditate upon the Spiritual Effulgence of That Adorable Supreme Divine Reality, the Source of the Physical, the Astral, and the Heavenly Spheres of Existence. May That Supreme Divine Being enlighten our Intellect So we may realise the Supreme Truth.

nice solid comp, the phyx and cpu tracks are really nice tracks to flow inbetween styles, the track that takes the prize would have to be the tickets track, absolutely insane, great unique true full-on, the build up and bassline really stand out from a lot of the trance coming out today, great job timecode,
