Boomkat Product Review:
Diverse debut album from the Danish producer. Over nine tracks Tobias Pedersen aka Beastie Respond builds on the crooked techno and smudged funk of his previous 12"s, yielding a wider spectrum of electronic emotions and rhythmic patterns. From the top 'Werk' pulls off a cool blend of Carpenter-esque synth intrigue and swinging electro, Autonomic styles, and 'VV10' leans on a fruity boogie tip. 'Please Stop Running' pairs Emilie Reimers with a dBridge-styled emo-electro rhythm and 'The Busdriver' sits on a muggy mission boogie vibe. Flipside the rugged Linn3 smack and colourful burst of chords in 'Initial' and 'Fictitious Nostalgia' remind of Hyetal or Dorian Concept, before the low-sunk, radar-evading electro groovers 'Crystal Palace Inn' and 'Before Dawn' wrap up the sci-fi esque narrative nicely.
