Even now the fourth edition of the "minimal Baby" sampler from the house SkullLine therefore comes back as a limited version. Not more than 500 copies of this compilation are distributed.
So happy to appreciate the one who comes into possession of this with just under 80 minutes running time packed sampler.
Selected artists from the minimal scene provide a lot of listening pleasure.
This starts with the opener "We Do Recall" of ANY LEAVE.
An almost hypnotic female voice announces the text, which rests on a complex and particularly bass-dominated sound bed.
"We Do Recall" is suitable for relaxed listening as well as for comfortable dancing. The beat is in the mid-speed segment and is interrupted only by occasional synth sequences built. A nice opener.
Afterwards it continues with "Ho Un Problema" PIO D'Orco.
This is a more experimental track. This can be seen already during the intro.
With the use of song, the feeling intensified. Extremely distorted vocals that define the lyric events.
The music seems a little uninspired at first, but will only be heard several times, because after a few runs you actually recognize a kind of concept in this track. A little bit of getting used to, but good.
"Illusions" by SOLITUDE FX is one of the faster pieces on this sampler.
The bass is relatively unobtrusive, as it does not sound so powerful and pounding, but the track is driving forward successfully.
The spherical vocals give this song something mystical and sound really good. The most dominant element is a rather high synthesizer melody, which interferes with the action again.
Almost seems commercially the track "Happy Suicide" from Alien Skull Paint.
This impression is certainly primarily due to the mass-compatible song, the music is combined with fairly unspectacular.
Although this song is not necessarily complex, but he has something that makes him extremely pleasant.
With "Ravings" from ANTI TRUST I really could not get used. The reasons for this are, firstly, the far too distorted vocals reminiscent of robot voices from the 80s, and even for these simple samplers to music. This, however, experienced at least one relatively exciting development and can therefore be described as quite varied.
Samplers are always a difficult issue. Rarely include this one particular song for the listener absolutely harmonious combination. In the "minimal Baby IV" of the individual consumer will find, however, certainly a much greater ratio of about pleasing songs than comparable offerings. This is very tight on content that is so limited exclusively to the music category of "minimal". By this definition, minimum fans will actually served well and I can express an unqualified buy recommendation.
But for fans of electronic music in general should make it available on this disc a few tidbits. Therefore I come to a very good score and give the "Minimal Baby IV "9 points.
