Boomkat Product Review:
Hot Roddy is the nom de plume of Chris Cook whose laptop experiments have seen the light of day under his Same Actor guise via the Bip Hop label. The first thing to strike you about "One Liners" is that it sounds surprisingly detached from the sort of knockabout plunderphonic bedlam you might expect from the Wrong Music stable. Cook pens instrumental passages performed on instruments as diverse as guitar, dulcimer and sitar which are then put through the Max/MSP mangle to concoct some truly bizarre sonic oddities. 'Crust Mantle Hell' is every bit the tectonic force the title suggests. Part old school Aphex, part outright gabba, it's a feisty electronic din to be reckoned with. The sitar and tabla plundering 'Know Your Deficiencies' is up next with some wacky sound morphing treatments, whilst 'Mineshaft Canary' provides some noir-ish IDM paranoia. Despite often producing some pretty uncategorizable sounds, you get a strange feeling of déjà vu upon listening to One Liners, with the spectre of nineties electronica looming heavily over much of the album. This is by no means a disparaging remark however, Cook handles his material with great skill and energetic vigour throughout.
