On paper, one after another, one after another, one guitarist after another of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, pays tribute to the violent revelry and jungle scenes of Britain in the mid-90s. This seems to be a strange proposition. , But John Frusciante has a lot of experience in this area. Since the first project inspired by Sour House in 2015, he has steadily released electronic music with the alias of Trickfinger under his own name and dozens of playing and singing albums. In fact, this is not even his first electronic album released this year: Trickfinger’s EP and third album arrived in March and June respectively. MayaHowever, this is his first instrumental electronic album “John Frusciante (John Frusciante)”
The publisher of this album is Timesig, the Planet Mu detachment established by the Venetian Corps, which broke the core pillar. Frusciante conducted one of the earliest electronic parades with him and became Speed Dealer Moms in 2010. A firm studio companion. With this cordial dedication, Frusciante released records under his own name. However, his personal affinity for the carnival sounds he simulates and infers here must also have some influence. He had said before that when playing guitar with Pepper, he was eager to make electronic music. In the early 2000s, he often participated in a jungle carnival in Los Angeles, trying to experience him with Keidis and co in the 90s. The scene when co-created multi-platinum funk rock music. This album undoubtedly brought the sweat of those formative nightclub experiences.The sound quality of his Trickfinger works is almost determined by clinical cleanliness (although there are quite a lot of sounds gathered together), but he Maya.
The album gradually declined as the release progressed, from the slow undulating beat and luxurious acid bass on the opening song “Brand E” to the elastic breakcore on “Zillion”, and the more recent “Anja Motherless” broken synth and The sound of broken drums. Frusciante’s beloved Roland TB-303 is a soft synthesizer, synonymous with acid house and carnival, and the key to Trickfinger’s record-playing a supporting role when he puts a lot of sampling and dramatic control and release communication. During the break between the halftime break and the switch between two falling adrenaline shots, “Reach Out” is saturated with 00s R&B staples. “Amethblowl” (the album’s lead single and a prominent figure in the film industry) encapsulated the tension in the heart of the record, drew a two-minute glitch snare drum and an expressive repetitive bass line, and then was pressed The breathless voice broke the whole thing. Under thunderous rolling beats and spongy bass.
In the past five years, Frusciante has honed the lightness and technicality of electronic music, thus enjoying a new freedom of expression. The flourish of melodies (such as the hypnotic scale of “Usbrup Pensul”, or the playful remix of the bass line on “Blind Aim”) brought flawless joy to the album, which was driven by infectious abandonment.Perhaps more importantly, these movements are also moved Maya Going beyond the realm of appreciation and interest, and entering a more meaningful realm. This album has all the characteristics of the Frusciante era of the apes, but provides thoughtful and interesting decorations at every turn: suddenly retreating from the dance floor to the lounge in the middle of “Flying”; g funk and sci-fi film soundtrack in “Entertainment Notes” “On the variation. When paying tribute, this is the tribute that any companion of cats would like. The rosy wanderers in Britain should also be respected.
