Boomkat Product Review:
Ex Medicine frontman Brad Laner returns under his Electric Company guise for Kid 606's Tigerbeat 6 label. Recorded between August 2000 and January of this year, 62-56 is Laner's finest electronic foray yet. The opening tones of Surf Stroke soon give way to the rousing glitch funk of Hyperion, a bass heavy workout that gets things going in fine style. The 4/4 funk doesnt let up with atmospheric tracks like Siamang and Test Card proving the development of Laner's electronic style. The tempo proceeds to drop on the stunning downbeat DSP of Something akin to living, a track dominated by percussion and melody. Also included is a 15 minute collaboration between Laner, Kid 606 and Blectum from Blechdom recorded straight to hard disk after a sunday afternoon live performance. Another essential release from Tigerbeat 6 and the best yet from Electric Company. Highly Recommended.
