I like the title track. The others I can live without
Was going to post this when I got back from work. Liking the title track Differentia as its a bit different, and Push Back because it's quirky and my wife likes to
I was just thinking, whilst I took a shit this morning, that Icicle hasn't released anything since his Entropy LP.
And here we are! Excellent EP, really feeling every track.
sounds sick! shame its not a 2x12", like it deserves to be...
i've not been too much into icicle before, but this sounds really good.
glad to see some fresh vocals by Tasha Baxter too!
Aww love 'Differentia', sounds fresh to me! Liking the other tracks too
Differentia is really awesome. Seems like he's getting at the top of the game once again.
Out 3rd June according to the ice man
Differentia is cool but otherwise, same old noisy neuro, I miss old Icicle
might have a run for his money with that rawtekk lp but Icicle makes some of the most well produced and mixed neuro out there atm. all these go off
RIP old Icicle
Really it sounds like a Designandbass tune, parody of a parody of sorts, I don't know where that leaves us. But you all like it, not sure what that means either. Suppose its OK in parts
Differentia has grown on me. The others sound like they've come out of the neurofunkila machine.
we get it Icey, you can produce really well. Now get back to the groovy stuff. Actually this EP is giving me headaches no idea how people like this Differentia track. It tries to be different but fails because it will not work in any environment. It's too try hard different that it basically sounds silly.
Sure there's only so much 99 wormhole sound you can imitate and give your own twist but going from that to this music is, sorry to say, very disappointing.
That time Icicle was using Bongos and it was actual heat:
Icicle used to be so fucking good all the way up until he started going all techy.
Crying shame what happened to him really, he was the best of that whole crop of 00s Dutch producers, but ever since the Floating Zero remix he has been unlistenable, undanceable, unplayable.
There is a copy of his Cylon release on Discogs for less than the price of a Big Mac, go buy that instead.
This one a stormer too, VIBES.
let's turn this into an old Icicle appreciation thread
