Product Description

Titan ~ Elevator

Amazon.com

Titan were huge in their native Mexico at the start of 2000 but little known elsewhere. Blending a mixture of horn-driven acid-jazz with the funkier end of big beat, Elevator is a kaleidoscopic foot-tapper just right for summer days and tequila-fueled nights. With production credits that include Craig Borrell and Ross Harris (Dust Brothers, Beck) as well as Michael Franti (Disposable Heroes), these are no ordinary grooves. Opener "1, 2, 3, 4" is B-52s for the chemical generation, while "Corazon" combines squelchy Hammond organs, vocals reminiscent of Sergio Mendes's "Brasil '66," and the head-nodding spirit of the Wiseguys onto one track. The album also includes Titan's signature piece, an inspired interpretation of the theme to the '70s cop show Starsky & Hutch. "Cum on Feel the Noize" is a more literal cover, but elsewhere on this retro-heavy collection, the ghost of Huggy Bear looms large and proud. --Paul Tierney

If you like electronic music like The Chemical Brothers or Daft Punk or even Plastilina Mosh, then you should give Titan a listen, like Plastilina you'll have no clue that they're from Mexico if you just hear the music (maybe just the fact that some of the samples they use are in spanish). And another good thing is that there's an interactive track full of retro 80's videogames just to put you in the mood of this guys.

White hot guitars, great samples, and a sound that goes from surf to funk by way of Tijuana and 70s cheese-rock while the beats crush you to a pulp. Plus almost nobody knows about them. I would love to see them live.

This album is great, after years of working in the undergorund area doing live-gigs, they decide to release an album, it has so many musical fusions It' just way too cool... It's a shame they haven't released a new one, don't know if they will since one of the members of the band is currently (jul/2002) working with a band called "Moderato", don't know what the future has in store for this band, but this CD is a proof of what could have been a great career for an excelent band.

Staraight out of Mexico City's thriving club scene come the hugely popular Titan. You mostly cannot tell form their music that they are Mexican except from a few vocal samples here and there. Their music is pretty undark and well produced but i feel that its all been done before. Everything seems to be done by the book. Please dont get me wrong, this is not a bad cd...but i am afraid i only will be able to like it i will never love it. That being said this Cd does have its high points...."1 2 3 4" is a great track whth superfast sufer rock styled beats and catchy guitar samples. "Corazon" is another great track with a chorus that is quiet addictive...in fact this track is also on the soundtrack to "Amores Perros" (hope i spelt that right)..a Mexican film about underground dog fighting..very very cool film, watch it if you can get your hands on it. "Battle Love" is a fast pace big beat extravangaza ..the most interesting part about this tarck is the vocal sample that they used..its from a cheezy 80's indian bubblegum film. Thas is an excillent touch and that atleast for me is the high point of hte CD. Rest of the CD flows pretty smooth whithout any dissapointing moments but there are no extactic moments either. Titan have tried to capture the beauty of retro style which they have been pretty much successful in doing butin the process have pushed their music into the generic rather than the name brand section. This Cd is a great party Cd but i wont recomend for any other porpose. Plastillina Mosh (also form mexcico) make similar styled music but they are of a slightly higher order....check them out.
