- Mystique Drums by Millimetrik
1 review. Write a review for us »
When I started working here all those years ago the kind of electronic music we flogged fell largely into two camps - A/ Awkward bastard minimal glitch/broken (nee smashed) beat fannies with no discernible rhythm or melodic appeal or B/ Hyper tuneful, smiley bunnies with tons of warm enveloping synth lines, cute melodies & catchy drum breaks. I ususally enjoyed the more left-field end of the melodic stuff but wanted to kick Lemon Jelly in the face after one album. And the Schnausser...the schnausser. He upset me he did. Millimetrik used to hark back to those simpler times before the genre explosion really took off in earnest but he infused his particular brand of cheerful electronica with all sorts of subtle nods to various movements. Now he's obviously enjoying the cream of the post-dubstep stuff. 'Mystique Drums' possesses that hazy, upbeat disposition & those reflective moods he often saturates his music in but now it has a thoroughly engaging contemporary sheen. One tune has me thinking of Ceephax at his most accessible & chilled, but then again he flits in & out of many genres, borrowing countless different moods to create an intriguing tapestry of cracking post-club groovers - mid to downtempo electronica with heart & substance.
