- You Drive Me To Plastic by Bullion
1 review. Write a review for us »
Not heard Bullion before but this is the follow up to his acclaimed debut “Get Familiar” and 2009's “Young Heartache” EP, both released on One Handed Records. 'You Drive Me To Plastic' is one continuous 29 minute party mix (broken up into nine tracks for easy listening) that merges elements of 80's pop, jazz, hip-hop, tropicalia, samba, electronica, funk and anything else this young west London producer can cram into the mix. The blending of this music is kinda satisfying in that it begins light and breezy with a blend of tropical and afro-beat influences before drifting into solid electronic instrumental and soundtrack type stuff and it grooves which, at the end of the day is more than you get from most nowadays. From 'Lol Express' and 'Too Right' onward it gets really good. This stuff is particularly appealing to me due to it's similarity to the best Vangelis stuff whilst also acknowledging the power of the FUTURE FUNK sound. In parts this also reminds me of the utopian synth pop of Games but it suffers from over doing it with the samples and the lack of any consistent vocals. Still, those are minor concerns and this is still a decent release. The sample clearance for this album must have been a fucking nightmare!
