REVIEW ➮➫➬➭ SEAPUNK
STARRING ➭➫➬➮ •ultrademon•
Probably we will not be here if Ultrademon didn’t existed. The whole seapunk wave has one certainty that Albert Redwine was the year zero.
The big effort has finally arrived and albert decided to call his debut album “SEAPUNK” probably to clarify, one time for all, his idea of #seapunk as a music genre . I decided to listen to this album switching off all the hype that this massive imaginary generated in fashion, pop and internet culture this year, taking albert as an EDM producers and nothing more.
I had great expectations from the album because i personally think of Ultrademon as one of the great composers of our generation for his originality and his ability to surprise.
The opening track “Chatroom with enya” is a manifesto, a retro deep house track with samples of interviews and statements about #seapunk.
“Dreamo” is a dreamy downtempo song that represent the entrance to the world of redwine and introduces you to “Dolphin”, where dolphin chirping surrounds an experimental plur beat with the typical elements of the producer: wobble bass, drip synths and hithat madness.
“From birth” is also a very interesting track with an hip hop beat is combined to a string bass lines. “The bayou” and “Post Solstice” are the highlights of the album! : the first one is unclassifiable crazy experimental track with a downtempo beat and a deep wet bass that goes from1/8 to 1/32, big rave synth explosions and water xylophones; the second one is an emotional instrumental ballad for your post-physical life. The album at this point enters in his uptempo dance phase with “Yr own personal demon”, “Shoved” and “Bahrain” highly influenced by the 90’s hi-nrg and euro-dance. There’s also space in “Spun” for the techno influences to demonstrate the incredible culture and versatility of Ultrademon. “1996” closes the record in a perfect way, back to the baltimore/jersey club roots of coral records.
THIS ALBUM IS AN ULTIMATE PORTRAYAL OF THE INTERNET CULUTRE.

HERE IT IS ! ☞☞☞ EXOTICA EP & TROPICS VIDEO
STARRING ☞☞☞ Polarsets
Our favourite tropical indie band, The polarsets, will release the new ep called “Exotica” on the 18th of june. 4 track of rare beauty made of tropical guitars riffs, xilophones, deep disco percussions and the whispered voice of Rob Howe. Every song create a proper atmosphere and takes you, not necessarly on the dancefloor but in an exotic beach at the sunset. Everything is in the right place, almost too perfect.
The band will also collabarate with Unicorn Kid on his debut album with the song “Just don’t open your eyes yet”, an early b-side of the band reworked by the Unicorn…
An excellent ep in streaming and tropics is IN FR33 DOWNLOAD.
