Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Japan's SPEEDOMETER come correct with a lush, cinematic take on downtempo with their debut US release, Private. Japanese acts such as DJ Krush, Boom Boom Satellites and Satoshi Tomiie are currently making inroads into what has traditionally been a Euro/American centered form of music, and SPEEDOMETER looks to be next in line. The cinematic musicality of Private will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Western acts such as Zero 7, yet there is no denying the dark, soulful and textured feel that has become the signature of forward thinking Japanese electronic acts.

Review

"Dark, cinematic, oozing with soul...Speedometer prove that DJ Krush and Satoshi Tomiie are not the only artists holding the torch for Japanese electronic music." -- Muzik

speedometer does a nice job of blending these tracks into one smooth mix, spiced up with a few nice, kind of funky beats. excellent example of good chilled out downtempo music with some hints of world culture in it. excellent if you like thievery corporation and lemon jelly. not only can you chill out comfortably with this cd but its pretty cool to cruise with. definitely recommened if your lookin for something new in the area of electronic downtempo.

If you're into Kruder & Dorfmeister, Thievery Corporation, or DJ Shadow, but would like to change it up a bit, BUY THIS CD.
In contrast to Tourist N.B., speedometer.'s first CD, Private is surprisingly polished though still keeps the funkiness which almost borders on cheesy. However, don't let that scare you away; unlike all those generic trance/downtempo remixes (i.e. Ministry of Sound, [insert any season or "Ibiza"] Chillout) that seem to be everywhere these days, this album is very innovative and ORIGINAL, perfect for those late night chill out parties for those with open minds.

I really love the tracks "Sky" and "Private Roots" (I heard SKY on the Drone Zone radio station), but the other sogns on this album feel a little flat or ununspired. Of course with any form of ambient music, the non-fan listener will become easily bored. So it's not really boredom that I'm complaining about, but instead just a lack of a specific mood or atmosphere.

To see what I'm saying, head to subsource.de and try out submix026(free), a very chilled out downtempo mix, and you will see that the music & instruments are very similar but the atmosphere in "Clear Future" is a little more defined: urban, nighttime, classy, tight, compared to this "Private", which has a more scattered feel but with a few well-defined tracks as mentioned above.
