Minilogue - Animals


Recommended Posts



recently released on cocoon records. two CDs, first CD is really nice techno, house kinda affair, some would call it "minimal" but whatever. some tracks remind me of early plastikman and studio 1 and other tracks have this basic channel feel. all in all very smoothly produced electronic music by the swedish duo (sweden has a bunch of good electronic artists). the second disc is more ambienty stuff and has a nice dusty sound and at points similar to bibio or boc, not a direct copy, but you get the idea. recommended for friends of electronic music. very enjoyable stuff.

personally, i think there is nothing to listen if you were into minimal techno\house last decade. very fashionable version of past days when they themselves were doing trance stuff.

please excuse me but i hate it for many reasons.

meh, you're just old and cynical. sure it might not be groundbreaking, but it's rare nowadays that something is. it's simply well made music. and i've been fans of them when they were releasing music as son kite, their stuff as minilogue just became more popular the last couple of years with all the 'minimal' craze, which has become really stale and boring. and besides this shows more variation than the average minimal album, no puf-puf kick and echoy clicky-clacky.

ok, i agree this produced with skills. and in some sense their minilogue's stuff goes further and ahead investigating new clubby trend of 'minimal neo-trance', like James Holden once said, - ''minimal is progressive with a couple of new plug-ins'' and even 'pop dub-tech' etc. i'm not cynical, i'm a bit fucking idealistic about how hardcore was music these, like many other, talanted in production guys now adapted.
