Unfortunately, Speedy J anno 2008 does not hold a better position in my eyes, above all because the samey hard techno sound has been replaced by an even more repetitive minimal techno approach to his music. The title track, Red Shift, which takes the crown amongst the two, is great for what it is; an eight minute groovy ride which goes absolutely nowhere, but kind of just pounds on, aided by a subtle drive and steady subtraction and addition/alteration of background percussion  . As for "Red shift", it lands in the no man's land territory. I'm referring to the A side track naturally, which I'm sure will pave its way into plentiful minimal orientated DJ sets, while the flip side I'm still trying to recover from.

Speedy J - Red Shift It's been a few years since Rotterdam techno veteran Speedy J, AKA Jochem Papp, has released a solo record, but judging from the results of the debut release on his digital-only Electric Deluxe imprint (with vinyl versions coming later through Plus 8), he's kept himself in good practice during his hiatus. Red Shift" is a sharp mid-tempo track that utilizes a palette of metallic sounds to echo and bounce a simple ping-ponging riff up and down the song's spine, gently tweaking it along the way, as well as subtly upping the percussion quotient.

If any one electronic artist merits comparison to the Beatles, it would have to be Jochem Paap. This first album, released on Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva's Plus 8 record label, finds Paap at roughly the same point on the growth curve that the Beatles were during Rubber Soul

Talk about Speedy J - Red Shift


Xlisiahal
After a two year production hiatus, one of the scene's all time finest, Jochem George Paap, is back with a new release on his own Electric Deluxe Records. For starters, the last we heard from Speedy J were two very ecclectic releases with George Issakidis on NovaMute. Well, since then quite has changed, apparently. For starters, Speedy J was (apart from being my personal #1 artist) a name frequently associated with genre bending and constantly morphing and challenging music. Some years down the line, and you may recall him getting a dosage of negative attention, after the release of the classic "Loudboxer" album, mainly due to his subsequent overly formulaic output. Unfortunately, Speedy J anno 2008 does not hold a better position in my eyes, above all because the samey hard techno sound has been replaced by an even more repetitive minimal techno approach to his music. The title track, Red Shift, which takes the crown amongst the two, is great for what it is; an eight minute groovy ride which goes absolutely nowhere, but kind of just pounds on, aided by a subtle drive and steady subtraction and addition/alteration of background percussion. Fun, it is, but for around four minutes in a DJ set, on its own it just goes on for too long with nothing to grab your attention. Speaking of which, Bootes is atrocious. It crawls at a snail's pace for twelve minutes, making it impossible to dance to, let alone get a kick out of it. Every once in a while there's this sound of an air plane flying over your head, "alla" Krekc, with one exception: there it was used to emphasize the music's intensity and transition from one part of the track to a whole new climax driven segment, here it is pointlessly applied and layed over very vague and bleak production vaults. Overall, not that I'm disappointed, apparently mr. Paap is 'on some other ish' with this whole new clash of digital and traditional performance technique, so I am eagerly awaiting to see where he will take his sound next. As for "Red shift", it lands in the no man's land territory. I'm referring to the A side track naturally, which I'm sure will pave its way into plentiful minimal orientated DJ sets, while the flip side I'm still trying to recover from.
