thanks for posting this. i grabbed it the other day and i really dig it aside from the couple of dubstep-ish tracks. the other stuff is really good though. classic melodic breaky stuff with just the right amount of soft edges... though some of the melodies seem to repeat from song to song or at least it sounds that way. strange thing. perhaps it just feels that way.
A few words from the press release - best description I guess:
"Bop returns with his sophomore album. Taking notes from the far flung reaches of the musical spectrum, Bop expertly weaves iconic 8-bit chiptune sounds and deep, pumping house beats with raw, undulating basslines and slo-mo funk / jazz inspired 170bpm grooves to create his very own blend of existential electronica."
I don't really know what genre the tracks are, they sound like quite old skool electronica or something before genres began to emerge and take precedence over an artists sound.
There's not really any signs of his Dubstep roots from Vex'd in these tracks, nor are they the Wonky sounds of his first EP.
It's mental how much of this basic 808 + synth stuff is popping up again lately, sounds very 80's to me, kinda Vangelis-ish but with a hint of incunabula too perhaps?
I saw a post here recently where a member was basically creaming their pants because someone they'd been to see live "actually brought his real tr-808 out".
It's not bad music, i just don't think it's that exciting really, "Whisper fate" for example which was playing as i typed that just sounds like a bit of a BoC ripoff.
I'll keep listening though, maybe this stuff will grow on me.
