Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Limited edition two CD set of Bomb The Bass' 2008 album release of Future Chaos featuring Paul Conboy, Fujiya and Miyagi, Toob, Mark Lanegan, Jon Spencer, with specials like the Adam Sky Ravebummer Mix, the Dan Aykroyd Mix by Various, Future Funk Squad's 'Jonboy' Remix, Gui Borrato Remix and Star (exclusive bonus edition track). In an interview, Simenon commented that the album had taken so long to complete partly because he had wanted to change direction, to take on a more simplistic, less cluttered feel - necessitating a restart and re-record.

Review

"...Brilliant collection of back-to-basics Moog and drum tracks" -- Time Out Chicago

"...a rocker's paradise filled with samples-less electro-soul and languorous moody passages that come of as similar to the swoopy synth thing he made with Depeche Mode." -- Blurt

"Bomb the Bass innovates by doing what few of their fellow musicians would dare: take something new and make it sound like they took it backwards." -- KEXP

"Great for dance parties and chill-outs, this could be the surprise hit of the year." -- Remix

THE BEST ALBUM OF 2008.
This is all about the music - stripped back, pared down, simplistic. Think Tim Simenon, co-producer Paul Conboy, a laptop, a mic and a Minimoog, the result A GREAT ALBUM.
Beautiful, nice and intelligent music.
Far from an explosion of new techniques, or a blizzard of samples, Future Chaos is old school - but that doesn't mean it isn't also cutting edge.
The nine-song disc kicks off with Smog - a hypnotic, futuristic dirge with fantastic vocals from Conboy. Big dance names Fujiya and Myagi guest on Butterfingers, with atmospheric whispery lines like, ''I play Tetris in my eyelids''. First single, So Special, is filled with twinkly synths, and Fuzzbox is a squelchy funkfest - a fitting end to the album.
Simenon calls it `electronic music with soul', but that barely begins to describe it. At once lush and chilly, intimate and alien, `Future Chaos' is a synth-rich album with great guest artists.
One of the most admirable aspects of this album is its restraint. Many of these songs date back to the late 1990s, and Simenon apparently recorded versions with full instrumentation and multiple synthesizers. At some point last year, Simenon returned to this material, but was unhappy with the previous arrangements, and decided to remake the entire album with nothing but a MiniMoog and a laptop. This was a smart decision, as this restriction instantly lends the album a strong sense of cohesiveness, a quality not often found in multi-vocalist electronic albums. The fat analog basslines, spidery synth figures, and chunky rhythms created with the Moog make the album a real treat for fans of analog soundcraft. The whole album chugs along with a sound that feels refreshingly uncalculated; a dark, playful, and mostly quiet suite of bedroom pop songs.
The special limited edition comes with 2 cd's with great remixes of Adam Sky, """GUI BORATTO (amazing)""", Michael Fakesch and many more, plus and excellent extra track "Star".

This is a really excellent minimalist electronic/pop album. Bomb the Bass did not attempt to overwhelm listeners with infinite layers of samples, frenetic mixing or electronic effects here - instead they have gone for minimal arrangements to allow the quality of the songwriting to take centre stage, augmented by a simply HUGE bass presence on every track. It was a good move, because the songs themselves really are strong enough to stand on their own without excessive mixing.

As for the vibe of the album, it's kind of a creepy, off-centre mixture of early Underworld (circa Dubnobasswithmyhead) and Primal Scream's XTRMNTR, with a little ultra-cool Renegade Soundwave thrown in (yeah I know you've never heard of them. Look `em up.) It's apocalyptic, catchy, dark, and addictive. They went for a specific feeling of restless desperation that acts as the album's central theme, and it works very well to tie all the material together into a tasty whole. It's stripped-down, intelligent, and highly recommended.

This album has been criminally overlooked. It is really a great listen. The beats will get your head nodding, the production is incredible, and the guest vocals from Mark Lanegan and the dude from Fujiya & Miyagi are perfect. Every track on this album (except the crappy one with Jon Spencer) is infectious. It just kills me that nobody seems to know it even exists. Trust me, this guy is super talented - if you don't believe me, look who he has worked with in the past: Björk, David Bowie, Massive Attack and Depeche Mode. Don't sleep on this one.
