Boomkat Product Review:
Ceephax surfs the retro-futurist zeitgeist with infinite finesse on ‘Camelot Arcade’, the fanciest steed in his now 20 year long catalogue
From the campy cover art pose to the classically eldritch music of ‘Camelot Arcade’, Ceephax proves himself the last of a possibly dwindling breed of English rave eccentrics. After 20 years of releases, he still manages to eke out charming new grooves from his trusted hardware set-up.
However, there’s less acid and more vintage analog synths this time, resulting a broader spectrum of classic-referencing styles between the glyding Italo-Electro of ‘Creon Happy’, the high-velocity techno depth of ‘The Green Night’, and the cascading cod-classical keys of ’The Great Gatsby’, and always with that winking, playful virtuosity that has elevated his music beyond the rest of the field - always innovating within his niche, never content to imitate.
