Comment: so after being finished of listening to Experim3ntus` Korruptio I opened the window of my living room again to get more air for the Mexican producer Gloss.`s issue Trophy. If to join these words together it could almost be pronounced as “catastrophe”. Luckily this 6-track issue is not catastrophic. It is the quite contrary. It is also an example of urban sound though being more synthetic, beat-oriented, acidic and psychedelic in comparison to the aforementioned issue. Mostly because of that these sounds do not have common part with those ones which do come from the street and natural surroundings. So you could open your window. Musically it provides pure joy from start to end – it is tight enough due to chilled-out and trip-hop-alike beats which used to vary in heaviness and at frequencies, acidic synthesizer undercurrents and flickers and a folktronic fabric. For one it might remind of the Beta Band due those sultry folk and electronica mixed developments, for an other person it might be similar to Portishead, and Massive Attack. For a third person Jimi Hendrix is going to haunt him/her. It is not surprising at all because the trip-hop combos leaned frequently and strongly on the tradition of rock music and even directly took samples from there. Otherwise you could hear those heart bleeding melodic progressions which induce the listener longing for something which inevitably is passed by and it might be even passed away (more evidently brought to the fore at New Destination, and Dry Land). This enchanting 6-notch issue is a chapter within the discography of Fusion Netlabel. Additionally to great music it is supported by the witty outer sleeve.
