|MH-223 Thavius Beck - Decomposition
The sprawling arrangements on Thavius Beck's Mush debut, Decomposition burrow into the listeners brain with a mix of melodic samples, chopped breaks, pulsating synths, and head-swirling delay, then morph into genre-bending sound paintings adorned with hallucinogenic vocal samples. Four vocal tracks, "Open Your F*@!ing Eyes" (featuring vocals by Thavius Beck himself), "June Gloom" (vocals by Subtitle), "Amongst the Shadows" (vocals by Cedric Bixler-Zavala of Mars Volta), and "Demons of Destruction" (vocals by Longevity of Darkleaf) find homes among instrumental tracks that are as densely layered and expertly crafted as is found in modern electronic music. Decomposition is a work worthy of extended headphone listening.
|Should pin you by the very first track - Urb / Heady and intense throughout - Metro.Pop / You can't stop listening - Pop Matters / A must have for hip-hop fans who see a future for the genre beyond the dancefloor - San Francisco Examiner / Close your eyes, swallow, and get to know true enlightenment - Absorb
|The sprawling arrangements on Thavius Beck’s Mush debut burrow into the brain with a mix of melodic samples, chopped breaks, pulsating synths and head swirling delay, and then morph into genre-bending sound paintings adorned with hallucinogenic vocal samples. Four full vocal tracks one featuring Thavius himself, one with Gsl artist Subtitle, one with Cedric Bixler of Mars Volta, and one with Longevity from Darkleaf. The rest of the album is a collection of densely layered and well crafted electronic instrumental music. Composer of mercurial soundtracks for uncertain times, Thavius Beck conjoins various strains of electronic music to arrive at a daringly ambitious sound. - Boomkat
