Review by synctank Jan 04, 2003
After the critically acclaimed 'parts' series on DUB, the funcken brothers return with their latest opus 'solid state'. Building on the already existing funckarma foundation of heavy beats and dark undertones, 'solid state' illuminates their spectacular programming talents even further with this monumental release. I personally was not expecting 'solid state' to push the boundaries that it does, but upon my first ingestion of the album, I could already tell that the project had finally produced the album I knew they were capable of. I found myself waiting, like a kid on Christmas morning, for another opportunity to lend my ear to this spectacular release. 'Solid State' has a very unique sound, not to say that it doesn't incorporate many facets of existing IDM music, but manages to arrange these common elements in such a way as to inject each song with a good dose of originality and inevitable innovation. A dark and melancholy mood drips from each track, pushed and shoved slowly by strong, crackling beats, piano and violin injections, and agonizing.
