Review: Kryptic Minds — One Of Us [Oct. 1st, 2009|08:34 pm]

Ever since Blackdown interviewed Kryptic Minds and posted a mix of material from the forthcoming CD in May, I’ve been waiting patiently for the CD “One Of Us” to come out. It’s out now and was worth the wait.

Every so often someone figures out for themselves how to use the spaces between the notes to conveny feelings notes cannot. Kryptic Minds’ take on dubstep with this release is one of those. This is really simple music, though not simplistic. A bare beat, samples that float in and out at their own deliberate pace, and warm sustained bass tones define a moody, meditative sonic landscape. These tracks signify without shouting out; they’re like roiling dark clouds telling the story of the rain and lightning to come.

I was asked by a woman who wants to make videos about her line of handmade jewelry for some backing tracks that were “fashion show music, you know, runway House, without too much techno.”

She pointed us at an Amazon page for one of those west coast smoove house compilations. I thought “oh jeez…” but then I sat down the other night to make something that was like what I imagined she had in mind. It’s super tracky, with the stupidest bassline ever, but I kinda like it.

I had just installed Native Instruments Komplete 6 so it’s all Battery, Kontakt 4, and Massive. Well that and Dubstation 16, UAD plugs, and TRacks mastering stuff but yeah, mostly Komplete…
