I have been listening to this album a coupla times over the past month and I love it! Nice pure melodious grooves with a fat bass line, reminiscent of Alien Project. This isnâ€™t full-on hard, dark night stuff, but rather early evening or morning stuff. â€˜Scuse if the track listing isnâ€™t in the right order, itâ€™s a demo cd which I got from the producer. The first track, Homegrown, is slow and lazy with a bit of vocal, nice to listen too when uâ€™re chilling or sitting on a beach watching the sun go down in anticipation of a hard party, maybe even sipping something sweet and juicy, cocktail-like. The beat comes in at 5 minâ€™s and builds up slow to a easy tempo. Silicon Sunrise isnâ€™t one of my favourites, but it sets the beat and is also a happy uplifting number. Magnetik, now this is where the fun starts! Although the sample (sounds like something from startrek) isnâ€™t too hot, this is a cool song. The intro opens the door for the song and there is a sound like a foghorn with a break-beat start to the song where the melody joins up and starts the solid beat. After the sample the song kicks off nicely and floats you along with a lot of building up and breaking down before it says farewell. Aaah, High Orbit, my favourite. Some might remember it from the fushion party Saturday, think it featured in Jimâ€™s set (12-2). A Sample going on about some sattelite and then it tunes orbit, orbit, orbit and the shit hits the fan. Smart. A solid groove to which you can shake your booty relentlessly, I especially like the way he winds up the song, and letâ€™s loose. There are two breaks in the song with some beat-silence, but nothing a good dj canâ€™t use to his advantage. Just after 5 minâ€™s that winding up again and BAM!! There we go again.. The title song Refractions, a bit of a more relaxed tune, when the dancefloor looks like a beating heart, with people bouncing easy and either getting into the mood, or coming down after a hard night of partying. No foaming at the mouth stuff, but you need this at the right time. More Directions, a re-make of New directions which most of you probably know. Another smooth melody which I like more than the original. Easy listening, but you can also use this one to chase up the tempo a bit. I can just see the sun rising and feel itâ€™s rays on me next to the beach at Silwerstroom (seaside venue in SA). Pure bliss with a couple of bends in the sound just to chase out the acid webs from the nightâ€™s party, but behold, 4 minutes into the song he does that windy up thingy again, wheee. Avalon has a bit of a deeper groove to it. A female voice sample, much like the one used in Homegrown, but more upbeat and darker, but no crazy stuff. Melody Machine is cool, a last fling to kick the last life out of you, and see you off to either the chill room or your car for some shpongle on your way home. A really good cd imo. I likes. I know there are some out there who prefer the crazier dementia sweeping the African continent, but this cd works, and with some break beats and good funk thrown in, itâ€™s top of my record box at the moment.
