Biography

Brooklyn’s TITAN specialize in crafting epic rock jams; smokey, sprawling stretches of sweet riffs, swirling synths, and all the right kinds of rock bombast. They have an instinctual grasp on tension and release, with each song building to several emotional crescendos before ebbing, only to repeat in the most compelling of ways. Sweet Dreams, and especially the track “Wooded Altar ... Read more in Amazon's Titan Store

Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Mexican Electronica October 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars C'mon Feel The Noise December 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Future July 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Promete, pero se queda corto February 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Este disco promete, de veras, pero se queda corto. Su momento mas interesante ocurre en la segunda cancion. Pero lo demas, aunque produce algo de disfrute, no emociona. No hay riesgos. Bajo la apariencia de desorden, todo sonido en este disco esta milimetricamente medido, que en principio no esta mal, pero no se, no provoca esa emocion que produce un album excelente. Espero que en su proximo disco -si no lo han hecho aun, este disco que reseno es del ano de 1999- me convenzan de que debo comprarlo.
