This is a strange and probably wonderful release from Chinese bit-core label Bedzoo (founded and run by Luo Hao AKA iLoop); a split LP between Japanese bleep mentalist Usk and hometown chip-head Sulumi. The mission statement of this disc is laid out clearly in the track listing – Usk contributes a track called ‘Synthely’ and Sulumi concurs with his ‘God Save The 8-bit’. If not completely composed on a Gameboy or NES, this album certainly worships at their altars. Listening to this album (especially the five offerings from Usk) is akin to listening to a mash-up of the themes from ‘Castlevania’ and ‘Jet Set Willy’ at triple speed; if you like your arpeggios cheesy, you’re in the right place. Sulumi does offer some welcome relief by slowing things down a tiny bit and adding some breakbeats. His ‘Spirit Constrains Of Dance’ even features some (heavily vocoded) vocals, of all things. This exhausting album is by no means bad – a lot of creativity and talent obviously went into its creation, but it is puzzling. I just can’t imagine where one is supposed to listen to it; one needs the attention span deficit of a particularly autistic goldfish to listen to it at home and it’s far too speedy for all but the most spring-loaded of dance floors. Maybe it’s just art.
