Boomkat Product Review:
If you like synths, crisp and dry electro(nica) and a side order of punishing beats then 'Sullen Look' is gonna have you smiling with delight. This long awaited album from Nature/Final Frontier label boss Marco Passarani sees him turning his highly refined remix acumen and mashed-up electro pioneering towards a sound that's much more jackin' for the floor, suitable for his generous new hosts over at Peacefrog. Opening with 'Earth's Heat', Passarani states his intent through a set of pounding, low end beats replete with synth-strings and lucid electronica which happily strides across into the realm of 'epic' without losing its bite. Over on 'In My World', Passarani takes some computer loving electro and shows it the funk, coming out with a clutch of lazy scratching and rubber coated beats. Elsewhere Alexander O'Neil's 'Criticize' gets a re-jiggin, peppeed with a shotgun full of warehouse cheese fora grin-inducing remix, whilst the Blade Runner grandness of 'C-B-S Master Theme' consummately beats Anthony Rother at his own game. Finishing with the highly sought-after cheeky cut-up cover of the Jungle Brother's now renamed 'Rendez Vous At 2099', Passarani delivers an album so full of treats you'll know exactly what to do. Good sh*t - buy!
