(If you) Believe what you hear

ON-OFF, “Space Tokes” [ON-OFF]

The first track today comes to us from Stan over at ON-OFF, a blog I hold in high-esteem. I had no idea he produced (it’s always cool when music bloggers throw their hats in the ring), but he’s got quite a knack for it. Sez he, “it’s made with a broken Roland JX-8p and an Elektribe drum machine.” Its swooping fluorescent progressions face off with fleet-footed synth stabs and spacious claps, becoming a bit of a body-jacker as it progressively works itself into a froth. A bit spare and simple in a manner similar to some second wave Detroit techno. Honestly, I’m pretty impressed and rate this among some of the month’s best. Let’s hear more, Stan!
