Madison Square Gardner: Available NOW!
December 01, 2010
The long-awaited Fancy Mike debut EP has finally arrived!
Enter the Garden and welcome to your fractured, garbled memories. Fancy Mike's debut EP, MADISON SQUARE GARDNER is a beautiful adventure into the hypnotic nature of lo-fi instrumental beat music. Influences include: field recordings, film scores, French electro, 70s italo-disco, 80s synth-pop and current-day keygen music. Fancy Mike is quickly evolving a Midwestern-influenced beat style into a sound that would feel most at home in the current Los Angeles scene.
The EP is available for your listening pleasure here: http://fancymike.bandcamp.com/album/ma dison-square-gardner
You can also purchase the EP for $5 @ 320kbps or, you can download it for FREE@ 192kbps.
"Here's a release to be grabbing people.... Madison Square Gardener is the first release on a new label called King Deluxe, and it's by a chap with the slightly effeminate name, Fancy Mike. Sub-Heavy Glitch Hop and synth-led post dubstep is the order of the day here... there's 8 tracks, the pick of the bunch for me is Lazer Opera - a crunching glitch riddim being straddled by an almost Depeche Mode-esque synth line with enough sub-bass to shake the filters out your cigarettes. Other tracks bring in choppy and atmospheric soul samples, and reflective electronic atmospherics - there's a lot of different influences here, but the central groove remains intact. Strong stuff."
"Enter the garden and welcome ». Un monde, celui de Fancy Mike et sa lo-fi instrumental beat music aux influences variées (électro française, 70s italo-disco, 80s synth-pop pour ne citer qu'elles). En résulte un travail autour du rythme et sa déconstruction extrêmement intéressant. Un hip-hop expérimental d'ailleurs apprécié par ses pairs et notamment par le producteur Lorn (Brainfeeder)."
"Fancy Mike is the cat's meow."
"Keep making music. I don't know why you wouldn't. Again ,the shit's rad."
