1) ATTENTION PLEASE!
A certain infamous white-trash rapper grabs your attention over fierce power stabs before a heavy-as-fuck kick & bass combo with the volume on 11 bursts out of the speaker & grabs the listener by the throat, refusing to let go until you're dancing his ass off.. Careful, it'll take you 8 Mile high...
2) COSMIC SPACE
Mad sounds spiraling ever upward introduce a new-psy sound, with cut up vocals over an ever changing sonic sound scape, powered by pumping bass & buzz saw sharp synths that push towards night time frenzy..
3) LSD 25
Inspired by Hoffman - and not Dustin! - this slab of hallucinogenius starts with a delicately picked guitar but soon descends into a full on psy-tech orgy of mayhem. Punctuated by ultra dirty percussion and maddest panning fx & lead interplay you ever heard, this is state of the art trippin' soundtrack music..
4) THE DOG IS TALK
Cavernous reverbed notes ricochet around the enormous space in the intro to this fierce blaster.a huge dead-of-night floor filler destined to find a place in the most twisted of psy - sets..As the girl says, "we could use some illusions"..
5) CRACKING SKULLS
Unearthly, disorienting strings set the scene before a huge crunch ushers in dueling stereo synths and more of the cut up mayhem that Dapanji are justly becoming famous for.. A stunning exercise in Class A power trance that builds & builds to its acid-drenched conclusion
Another manifestation of the Hoffman legacy, here Dapanji rack up another superbly produced tribute to tripping in their inimitable style.. A lysergic tinged romper-stomper to drag the chemically enlightened to the trance floor
7) DANCE 2DA MUSIC
More familiar vocals - cant quite remember the name of the singer - as the boys revisit a floor filling classic and inject it with their own particular brand of psychedelic poison.. You'll be hearing this everywhere this spring for sure..
8.) DON'T STOP
With a sound so huge its like the aural equivalent of an American football player on steroids, "Dont Stop" is another example of Dapanji's ability to cram a lab full of sonic experimentation into a tune yet still keep it primarily a dance tune.. another psy-high monster for the floor.. Just try & stop it!
The intro sounds like C3PO & R2D2 arguing, but soon gives way to another soul stirring rocker.. razor edged percussion sounds & clattering, juddering synths battle it out in cyberspace.. the winner takes off!!
Closing proceedings on a debut to remember, "Galactica"'s intro features lush eastern inflected strings & a hypnotic guitar figure before a diamond hard kick 'n' bass combo stomps up out of nowhere to propel us into the stratosphere.. with sub-sonic bass, dirty, punching synth stabs and mesmerizing sonically mangled voices complete the job on your already damaged psyche.. Busted!!
