The Highest Technique by .::neocognitron::.

I am really psyched to present this album that's actually a 68 minute long single track. It's synth galore reminiscent of the glorious 80s but it sounds super fresh.

The track starts with some female chanting (almost a drone) floating above some tight percussion and what sounds like the synth of doom. It's got a very Middle Eastern new age vibe to be honest. Not a bad start but not that representative of the whole thing. At some point (near the 4 minute mark), the beat tightens and the ride really begins when a really fat synth invites itself to the party. Another luscious retro synth soon takes over the lead role and you know right then that it's gonna be all good all the way to the end. There are lots of breaks and rhythm changes in this track, and all I can say is that it's produced flawlessly, never dull or boring (you'll find some glorious synthesizer leads a la Jan Hammer in there, and even some chiptune stuff.) The only thing that bothers me a tad is the ending of the track, as I think it deserved more than an easy fade out.

Enjoy the ride and let me know if you don't think it's one the best things you've heard in a while (I need comments).
