Tungsten Overseer

by Jam-master Basstropolis Esquire

Racing into your ear and brains like an audio bullet, Jam-master Basstropolis Esquire’s latest offering fuses his patented brand of lilting melodies and retrofuturist rhythms with the unmistakable hiss of analogue electronics to create Tungsten Overseer – a revolutionary EP inspired by his own personal mechanical demons from which he knows no respite.

With all tracks recorded in mid-2016 AD, the phenomenal opening track Pulmonary sets a high bar for the following tracks with its pounding analogue bassline and infectious 303 hook. The bar is once again raised with the ironically shuffled beats of Y2Z that settle a counterpoint to the irreproducable lyrics re life and its subplots. Unity Suction follows, transforming from an abrasive hospital sound to the blissful murmuring of satisfied synthesisers working together to achieve world peace through audio heaven. Timeflow Meltdown dribbles into fourth place and, as is customary for the fourth track of J.B.E.’s work, combines the sound of the Sega Genesis classic Pop Daddy with the ambience of our own collective memories of seaside holidays and the long ride home through the deepest forests and over a majestic bridge.

Concluding the masterpiece is MAD, a high-energy track that takes no prisoners. Using a new technique not before seen in the music world, J.B.E. has, what he calls, “sampled” the voice of a beautiful lady so it can be heard identically each time the track is played. Her beauty shines through to make MAD possibly the perfect finish to any musical release ever created.
