about

[Review by Igloomag]
Raw techno slabs maneuvered via analog machines, plastic rhythms, gritty melodic videogame themes and bass dribbling, 2ndMOUSE (aka Chris Steven McKeown) pulls all the left-field danceable bits into byte sized chunks on Communique. Tangible downtempo beats strewn across funky vocal snippets and experimental ragga tinkering, there’s an array of genre shifts from abstract electronics, glitch, bass, acid, 8-bit, brokenbeat and nostalgic themes at every cross street. A talented musician not afraid to dip into upbeat movement-based electro akin to an early Global Goon (or Brothomstates—just visit “Walking in my Shoes,” for instance) venture though time and intergalactic space.

=======================================

On a personal note, I'd like to dedicate "Communique" to Harry McVeigh who sadly passed away in February 2014.

It was Harry who gave me my very first paid creative break when I was drawing pencil portraits, and he asked me to draw six 2 x 3ft portraits of snooker players for his snooker club.

Although I later went on to discover I could express myself much better through music than I ever could with pencils. Harry believed in me and I will never forget that gift of belief.

Thank you Harry. I hope your soul is at rest my friend.
