Red Green Blue is the "Internet concept album"- after getting over social anxiety and diving into the "virtual life" I wanted to make music that resembled the feelings that meeting people and creating things virtually has caused.
The download comes with:
• The "Red Green Blue" album in your choice of format.
• Three gorgeous posters and one desktop wallpaper in PNG format.
"Red, green and blue are the colours that define our lives. Combinations of these colours can be used to generate pleasure for not only our senses but our souls as well. When you have a high enough concentration of these prime colours next to each other they start to blend- generating new scenery that varies from viewer to viewer out of the originally intended result."
It's the first time since 2006's "Disfold" that I've gone with a concept for the album (2008's "Lowblow" and 2009's "Exosphere" were both more or less just collections), touching on adopting technology to carry out human interaction. Listeners are highly encouraged to try and lose themselves as much as possible and even forget that the music is playing. The intended state of listening is close to another person, virtually or physically.
The album starts all out with "Switch", a psychedelic, almost trancey techno affair with an undeniable 90s flair which continues through the album. It carries on to "Proxy" which is a real bass tech-house monster - watch out for your subwoofers! The track builds up to an euphoric peak, shifting constantly in its rhythm to keep things interesting.
"Sit And Go" features one of the most memorable build-ups I've put out to date along with a happy-go-lucky retro videogame theme urging you to nod your head and move your feet to it. Classic stuff! "Bit's Bit" separates the first half of the album from the second with a tasty, analog world of sound and a hypnotic melody to boot.
The ominous "Salamander", one of the highlights on the album, chugs along with interlacing harmonies and brash, sudden tones, reminding of the alien landscapes and otherworldly places Finns are so good at expanding in your mind. The frequency modulated tones continue in "Red Green Blue", bringing forward a warm blend of tones and textures, reinforced by the shifting chords and galloping melody painting vistas of dark skies being showered in stars.
"Snopard" (which was featured on my infamous Erotus mixtape) is a calm, relaxing story, unfolding one page at a time. The song breaks down and moves in unexpected ways, creating rhythm out of the tiniest gaps and timing between events as it rolls forward, gathering force as it goes.
The album ends with "Sun Dub", a highly dubbed-out, literal journey through the galaxy to the center of it. Dedicated to the sun, the song feels as warm as a summer's evening wrapping around you like a fluffy blanket, feeding you vitamin C.
The listening experience is intensified to 11 and beyond at loud volumes as the tracks on the record have been kept as dynamic as possible, so please, PLAY IT LOUD & FROM START TO FINISH! And get a blowjob while you're at it.
