Album Review
Reviewed 2015-02-12
Produced by Chester Raj Anand (Lord Raja), from Red Hook, New York. Got into music software early from his brother, and learned to use computers, keyboards, drums, and Indian recordings to his liking. Heavily inspired by Flying Lotus before, now incorporates “knotted amalgamations of footwork and IDM, heady ambient, alien house, and askew hip-hop.” Great stuff for all of you into obscure electronic music.

Favorites: 6, 9
1. (4:42) Mysterious opening. Moves into trancy beat. Think of going through time and being immersed in memories, both good and bad. Not too intense though. Still quite chill. Reminds me of some of the Silent Hill soundtrack
2. (2:04) Combines odd electronic elements and rap vocals. Sick beat, lots going on, but not made for normal dancing. Still relatively too slow for “dance” music. Maybe some EBF music.
3. (1:25) Short track makes it feel like an intermediate between songs. Fast beat, changing elements. Lots of bass.
4. (2:09) Again, lots of shifting elements. Oddly soothing, but a bit of a mysterious undertone.
5. (3:03) Most of the track is aggressive and full of bass and a strong beat, not much different from the other tracks aside from that.
6. (2:08) Definitely a contrast to the other tracks. This one is peaceful, trancy, but no snares or percussions. Just wavy synths, makes you feel like you’re in a dream. Interesting melody.
7. (2:35) Builds off the feel from track 6, but brings in percussions, fading patches of voices, and adds a much more intense trance-like feel.
8. (3:20) Very fast beat. Melody reminds me of some older disclosure tracks (from early EPs), except still doesn’t quite compare. Much faster, more immersive, lots more going on.
9. (3:17) Scratchy percussions, really nice synths. Same melody on a loop. Homogenous, but good. Slower, calmer. Still fun. Almost has a house feel.
10. (3:21) Consistent, (relatively) simple beat and melody for most of the song. That starts changing about a minute before the song ends. That beat is replaced by a mysterious, fading melody.
11. (3:48) Feels like it’s missing something at the beginning because it’s just some weird synths and percussions. Then an Indian female’s vocals fade in and out. And dancy, reverbing square synths start appearing too.
12. (3:05) Similar to 6, in that it makes you feel like you’re in a dream world. But this one is more mysterious, for sure. No percussions/drums. Little bass. Mostly wavy, eerie synths.
