About this item

Melly aka DJ Aprés Ski with four tracks of cerebral club music for the daytrippers and 5D-voyagers alike as the amazing Major Problems continues to be a beacon for the unknown and undiscovered. "Shrubbery" is a meandering lysergic swirl, decorated beautifully with digitized timpani for a moment of neon-hued serotonin release. "Health Is Wealth" deploys stuttered mid range synth shots as a simple arpeggio rotates slowly around pneumatic beats for a blackened night club weapon that kids'll go crazy for. "The Beds" is a bouncy, elastic cerebral house number, with ricocheting perc, suspended pads and a nagging, penetrative lead and in some way, reminds me slightly of FYI Chris' eerie creepers. "Mineral Water" completes the set with nods Mood Hut's Aquarian Foundation and Cloudface - a hazy, dreamy, aquatic cut that sees bubble fx and sonar bleeps sidechained against a rippling underwater current for a track that'll instantly transport you back to Sonic the Hedgehog's water levels. Watch out for air bubbles!
