Marvin Wilson Being Here
A DEBUT album from the home of Edinburgh electronica label Alex
Tronic Records. Marvin Wilson starts his 10 track album with Imagine
Instead. To begin with, some old synths sounds of a voice that
could be from a dentist’s chill out tape.
But stick with
it as the drums and bass kick it a tune develops getting better
and better with a guitar riff breaking through the walls of sound.
After that the instrumental tunes just get better and better. Before
Flying is hard house trance, A New Day is Kraftwerk back on the
Autobahn, At The Beginning is gritty metal synth, Boomerang has
the alarm noise of classic Underworld.
Two blissed out tracks Being
Here is Not Being Alone and Living Spaces close the album calming
everything down. Being Here is an album for those afternoons after
the night before.
