When I first heard Black Givre back on a split, I was left impressed enough for me to be excited for this release. I had downloaded the previous release I reviewed (Which as I look at Blogger now, it appears as if I never actually reviewed it and only listened to the Black Givre/ Charles Barabe split), so I was also rather excited just because I’d be hearing this on cassette and it did not disappoint.
The first thing I noticed about this music is the pace at which it moves. There is a constant drum beat, which often times sounds as if it is being made by a full drum kit although it would seem otherwise it would be a drum machine for any other artist, and this just keeps the entire cassette moving like a shark.
Mixed with these continual beats are the sounds of electro whirrs which become somewhere between 8bit and perhaps my old fall back reference of The Prodigy because I just don’t know any better. Within the hum and the buzz, we also experience a bit of synth coming out along the lines of Britney Spears’ “Toxic”, which I absolutely love and use only as a general, pop sort of reference.
