As One: So Far So Good
Label: Ubiquity
This is a 10-year retrospective of the music of As One (Kirk DeGiorgio). There is some really good stuff here, ranging from techno to house to breaks to funk, all complete w/ As One's signature synth style, reminiscent of Future Sound of London and Richie Hawtin.
CD 1: Try: 2,4,5,6,9. CD 2: Try: 2,4,7,8,9.
1. space-y synth swirls, consistent chill house-y beats
2. really space-y ambient synths & snappy beats
3. more of the same, mellow synth swirls & snappy beats
4. big thumpy kinda-broken-beats w/ some chill synths
5. nasty funky bassline, broken-beats w/ some catchy synth loops
6. techno-y - w/ a nervous synth loop & big synth swirls & insistent analog bass
7. tweaked-out synth warbling and thumpin' bass & beats
8. mellow synth interlude
9. hard Kraftwerk-ian techno - industrial-ish beats w/ warbly synths
10. ambient synthesizer layers - very lush - beat-free
CD 2: Try: 2,4,7,8,9.
1. long intro, drops into buzzy techno w/ some lush synth swirls
2. funky bassline w/ a bunch of nice mellow synth loops
3. more of that funky bassline, with tweaky buzzes and synth loops
4. cool snare-drum breaks, big synths that work together dramatically
5. ambient synth ballad w/ deep rolling bass
6. a sort of weird dub-psychedelic track w/ slow bass & meandering synths
7. pretty ambient synth ballad, w/ some nice slow bass
8. big bad-ass broken-beat w/ lush synths - has a nice funky attitude
9. has a nice minimal-techno feel - some analog warbles & same lush synths
