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Speedy J anno 2008 does not hold a better position in my eyes, above all because the samey hard techno sound has been replaced by an even more repetitive minimal techno approach to his music.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
