In the wake of its latest compilations "Chillogram" and "Utopeak followed by Electrypnose's acclaimed full-length debut album, Peak Records is delighted to unearth yet another gem of the Swiss psychedelic scene: DRUMATIK presents his debut album "Peak Process" to be released in March 2006. And what an electrically charged maelstrom it is!
DRUMATIK has the habit of pushing boundaries over the edge and "Peak Process" is an ideal manifestation of the concept. The nine fast-paced sonic bulldozers composing the album are theatrically stitched together in a manic fit of twists & grooves. And they are heading straight for the night dancefloors of psychedelia with a couple of detours through the twilight zone!
DRUMATIK's production is a technically impeccable patchwork of innovative sounds. A topsy-turvy alchemy of clever sampling, unexpected breaks, powerful basslines and hectic rhythms accompanied by crunchy but atmospheric pad sounds. Add leads that chase one another through the tunes lifting and shaking the mind of the listener, and the successful equation of the DRUMATIK project is complete!
Caution: this man's music is an extreme journey…Do not take lightly!
Long live the drumming basket case!
By Death Posture :
What an album! Easily the most energetic I’ve heard from Peak Records – there is not a single dull second here and basically this is a big old melting pot: A billion ideas, styles, oddball twists and turns – all kept within a framework of full-on night trance… Yeah, this is patchwork psytrance – like a big old quilt sewn together from a billion little funky pieces – and as such, this is extremely cool! I cannot even begin to count the layers here – or contemplate how many months of work made into making this… It’s one jaw-dropping moment after another. It’s really, really impressive!
