Boomkat Product Review:
Electronic funk maverick Funkineven at his best for Julio Bashmore's Boardwalk label. We really weren't expecting anything as experimental from the label which released 'Au Seve', but with Funkineven at the controls we shoulda known better. His 'Species' opener segues from the sounds of an orchestra tuning up into a pensive sci-fi synth theme, setting the scene for strident electro-jak attack and Dopplereffekt style chorales on 'The Joker' and sparse, spiky acid wave funk in 'Aviator'. Best of all is the deft EBM hardware construction, 'Beat Tunnel', which sounds like it coulda come out on some obscure Belgian compilation circa 1988, whilst 'Mars' invokes prime Cybotron and early Drexciya comparisons. It's a goodun this one.
