Comment: this bunch of 12 compositions is a split release being issued by an intriguing record label, Vaatican Records. Behind the split are FRONQUE de BONQUE, and BESTSELLER, the both of them delivering 6 compositions. There are many ways of how to approach the whole but I would prefer to describe generic mood and appearance of it. Given that the artists' aesthetic is quite similar. First of all, the release came out in the end of 2009 and my proposition is it happened to be ahead of its time. By my opinion it's a sort of pop music though a tricky one. It is filled in with different sorts of broken beats which in turn are (heavily) imbued with digitalised soul music, hip-hop glimpses, slightly haphazard breakbeat torrents, oval-shaped sampledelic art, and even post-dubstep rhythms though the style was not publicised at that time yet. Furthermore, at I Got Your Keys by FRONQUE de BONQUE one can consider it a weird twist of free jazz. Another composition which must be heard is Singapore by BESTSELLER. Very impressive indeed. However, there are no weak compositions on it. These 53 minutes are to have passed by very quickly due to the high rate dynamic flow of exciting bits and beats. Perfect accomplishment.
