Reynaldo Alvarado sums up the CD quite well. The following review has been published and is available at https://www.tradebit.com...
The new album by Progenitor will chill you out in a nice heady way. "function (i)" combines a lot of relaxing ambient and trance sounds with a touch of break beat and some hip-hop sensibility. It is very original, and though one can make comparisons, it''s not exactly like anything you''ve ever heard before.
Not only is the opening track "Popular Poison" a real stand out, but it sets the mood and expectations for the rest album nicely with its beautifully woven soundscapes. Hess pays tribute to his Brit-Pop influences in a little ditty called "Connection in London." Another highlight is "Yellow Lines Unbroken" which has a playful, almost silly melody, overdubbed with some nice breathing samples. Of all the tracks, the one I like best is "Leave That Beach", which could be best described as a peaceful and soothing ride.
Audience and Appeal:
Who is this album for? Anyone who''s into electronica: The full range of electronic genres are subtly blended through out this work. The overall sound of this album could best be compared to Aphex Twin with an urban twist to it, but fans of Moby and more mainstream techno will also enjoy this.
In a genre that is increasingly similar and bland (especially in regards to Euro-Techno) Progenitor''s function (I) is a breath of fresh air. The music has a mello, dreamy quality to it that gives it a broad appeal. Excellent work Progenitor!
