I think what makes the music on this blog so compelling are the different sounds. I know that sounds fucking stupid, of-course it’s a music blog and music is just decorating time with lots of organised sounds- but if I really listen, I mean, really take my time to let the music into my brain… I like the particular noises; each little bleep and bloop used in these tracks and where they are placed.

There’s nothing ubiquitous about the sounds used in twisted soul and and future beat- unlike say, dubstep’s modern screeches and squeals that are replicated by every producer in every new release. Experimentation with sound is one of the coolest and most appealing creative outlets I can think of- the same way if you put a kid in-front of a drum-kit they’ll have a ton of fun making a huge amount of noise… When that kid is grown up he’ll have his field recorder, tapping light-globes with scissors, reversing the sound and adding copious amounts of reverb to create something your ears have never had the pleasure of experiencing yet.

Anyway, I guess what I’m getting at here is that I love the sounds in Aki Aki‘s Cockroach. It’s about 3-months old now, there’s been plenty of time for it to become boring and plain. But instead we all go on, simply doing what we love- creating sounds.
