Gecko Yamori has a unique electronic style that uses sounds and instruments that aren't your everyday electronica fare. For example, the filtered synth-piano-bell thingamajig that intros this Sonic CD mix isn't the type of patch that would show up if the mix was in the hands of someone playing with FruityLoops presets :) With a heavy downbeat that mixes drum kits with multiple breakbeats, a moving, undulating bassline, piano, and a monophonic saw synth with some nice portamento, this is some well-realized stuff. There's also a breakdown (almost a fake ending) at 1'46" that's interesting, and some warm analog pads with filter sweeps on each chord change. Nitpicks? Just a couple. Ending is a little "eh", but I don't have a hang-up with endings like some people do, so that didn't really bug me. When at 1'12" the saw synth takes a solo, though, for held notes, I think there should have been some subtle LFO vibrato or something, simply because held saw waves sound a little like alarm clocks at 5AM (that's early for me, btw) unless there's trailing modulation of some nature (filter, pitch, amp, formant, dsp). Yeah - that's my major beef. Some of you not acquainted with synthesis terms might not even know what the hell I just said, but it's a small detail in an otherwise nice techno mix that throws in some elements of jazz as well. It also has an excited little man shouting 'pump up the volume', which is always fun as well. Sidenote: do you think anyone listens to that guy? He says that in an awful lot of electronica songs :) Recommended.
