Well well well, if it isn’t one of those mini dual reel things masquerading as a computer. CPU by name, analog by nature. The Sheffield label is still churning them out quick as ever, though this shoves a spanner in their usual run of strictly dancefloor electro 12 inchers with a full LP of otherworldly synthesised boogies from Megatraveller, his 2nd on the label.
Penning this as ‘uneasy listening magnetic funk’ in the press release is a bit of a red herring. The times that it does coalesce into a funky groove, it is always with an accompanying flurry of bizarre blips and whistles, as if Megatraveller is trying his best to make the machines behave, but they instead throw a tantrum and puff out some smoke. Saying that, there are some seriously infectious bubbly acid beats buried under all this tape saturation and synth nonsense, not that this would ever make it onto the dancefloor though. Never seen a tape in a club. Strictly for losing your shit bedroom style, this.
Its rough edged-ness is actually much more enjoyable for me than the majority of the CPU stuff whose sole purpose is to get you bouncing. Imperfection, perfectly intertwined with some regular beats and ridiculous analogue babblings. It’s also very long and I have limited time so I’m regretfully gonna have to leave this one be, but if you like stuff like Border Community then you’ll enjoy this. Even if you don’t, do it anyway.
