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.
9.0 ☺/10.0 ☺

REVIEW ➮➫➬➭ Bubbles (Coral Records Internazionale SPLASH008)
STARRING ➮➫➬➭ •ultrademon• + DJ Kiff (Kiff The Producer)
New release by the coral rec since the journey of “Ambire” by Tsars, created by Ultrademon, the label founder, and DJ Kiff. KEVIN HECKART made the artwork, of course, beautiful and inspirational as always.
The first track, “Work”, is not just the usual trap/jersey club track: as the coral accustomed us, the song take us by surprise with growing sweep and wobble bass, just where a normal person would put a conventional drop.
The ep has been released 4 hours ago and “Yr so wet 3.0” is already a hit :) : is simply how to make people dance with totally new solutions, the dance music of the future, and i’m sure it will be one of the most played songs in seapunk and underground dancefloors.
“Thinkin’ ‘Bout u” is a melancholy trap song that meets delicious electric pianos and a soul blue choir.
“Green Room hill zone” closes the cinquain, here the mood returns happier and let the rave goes on.
Coral rec released another avant-garde record, and this is one of the best of the serie since “#Seapunk Volume 1” and “The Beach”. You have a bunch of tracks to pass scatheless the winter.
9.0 ☺ / 10 ☺
