Yasushi Miura
"Magnitude No.5"

This schizo mix of light, airy minimalism and unending house beats is a little strange. The textures lend an industrial imitation of deep metallics sounds of chimes, bells, marimbas and dial tones. These dreamy effects laid over a steady house/hardcore beat. The album relies heavily on the contrast between the tweaky effects and the pulsing bass. All tracks are fast tracks except 1 and 4. No FCC's.

1 (0:49) Sharp digital laser sfx intro

2 (5:32) A simple digital melody until 2:30 when the beat becomes more complex and the track breaks down into glitchy refrains.

3 (8:12) A Heavy house beat, full-on anthem club sound. Degenerates into hypnotic glitch.

4 (0:55) INTERLUDE

5 (5:18) A hard beat with tweaky effects.

6 (6:15) Soft layers of bells over a jungle beat. Continues to layer and syncopate back into a house beat.

7 (1:23) A fast track relying on a barrage of bells.

8 (1:43) A light trance sound. The album ends abruptly with a single beep.
