Bop: The Amazing Adventures Of One Curious Pixel
Today I present to you some micro drum n’ bass made by a Russian whose Last.fm profile states he is a “green tea-drinking, banana-eating vegan with a dog named Booyaka”. Great!
The thing that hits you again and again throughout “The Amazing Adventures Of One Curious Pixel” is the intricacy of the drums – complicated clicked and punched rhythms across Dn’B and more dubsteppy styles (and one 4/4) that make the whole thing fascinatingly intimate. Add to that the warmth of the chords, the enveloping bass and a few chopped-up soulful vocals (à la Burial in places) and you’ve got something remarkably tender and personal for something made of machines. Even the harsher sounding ‘8-Bit Cosmos’ manages to keep to this remit through the warmth of nostalgia evidenced by its title.
Ever wondered what jump-up for tiny, tiny people in a miniature marquee would sound like? No? Well I have many a time. And so should you. Get it here.
