hello
Bitpop EP
tracklist



info

The first solo ep! All tracks but B2 were produced in April 2001, so it sounds pretty homogenic.
It's (almost) a concept ep ;)
This ep was mastered & cut by Rashad at D&M Studios, Berlin. The testpressing sounds marvellous.
I finally updated chophop with an ogg version of the mastered file. The mp3 of questionable aims is from the unmastered track and allows but an idea of what the mastered track sounds like.

Killer E.P. von Geroyche aus Chemnitz, der hier auf sechs Tracks Welten wieder zusammenkittet, die über lange Zeit nicht wirklich mehr passen wollten.
"Headache" schaudert uns mächtig einen vor, zerzwirbelt ein fieses Lachsample, bettet alles in einen darken Bass ein, dreht das Echo auf und schmuggelt noch schnell eine kleine Melodie mit rein, die die Darkness ordentlich entschärft.
"Where I Long To Be" beginnt stolperig und fies hochfrequent, bevor ein waschechter Hook alles wieder ins Gleichgewicht bringt und alles super blitzt.
"Pantone" ist ganz klar von einer anderen Welt, schenkt uns einen Loop, den jedes Laptop unter dem Prozessor tragen sollte, schiebt frech den Knarzloop rein, bevor die Orgel wieder loslegt.
"Chophop" ist mein Hit, so wunderbar verzerrt deep schleift sich die Fläche wie ein Schal um meinen kranken Hals.
"Any Reaction..." beginnt grobkörnig klar, bevor bleepiger HipHop alles klar macht und "Questionable Aims" würde fast eine Einladung zum Kuscheln sein, wenn da nicht ... ihr werdets erleben.
Wahnsinn. Gipfeltreffen des warmen Krachs.
5/5

[...but in any case it takes a little more to impress nowadays.] That might be found on Geroyche's "Bitpop" ep (practically a short lp), which is in the direction of ambient glitch, where the crackling sounds are more discreet, and creates a hazy background for broad, floating (and usually a bit melancholy) synth harmonies. This style too is becoming a bit to well known, but at least there's more to judge it by, and Geroyche must be judged as one of the better examples. The combination of melodic elements and digital error-rythms is mostly not that new, but Geroyches music is nevertheless brilliant, based on a warm and open soundspace, closer to classic chill out than indie introversion.
And furthermore, Bitpop has a couple of surprizes in the first and last track, going into more unusual and disturbing areas. The first, "Headache", mix up brooding ambient with a light chill out theme and a psychotic laughter, submerged in fathoms of delay, while the closing "Questionable Aims" creates a brutal breakcore/noise meltdown, but still with dreamy sounds overhead.
A somewhat atypical and very recommendable electronica-release.
