The Amalgamation Of Soundz - The Amalgamation Of Soundz EP is combination of future jazz and electronic music all in one recording. The Amalgamation of Soundz follow their jazzy influences with this release. They never fail to disappoint us with their unique sound. This EP was released on vinyl in 2001 and is one of their harder to find releases.
Alone is a breathtakingly dark future jazz composition back an ensemble of acoustic guitars, obligatory heavy bass, and electronically processed techno beats. Alone is more electronic oriented than jazz oriented. Despite that, The Amalgamation of Soundz follow their jazzy influences on Alone. The break for the bassline to drop is infectious.
Imagine an old noir film, a ragtime jazz band playing at a super fast speed, an electronic soundscape, and a drum session all playing at one. That is what Guilty As Charged sounds like. The song sounds like 7 records all playing at once similar to the Zoogz Rift – Sons of Puke album. The song certainly has a unique style. Guilty As Charged is notable for its intense drumming, muffled old noir film sample, and multiple layers of instruments. The tempo is 150 BPM. Future jazz meets electronic on Guilty As Charged.
Ten Scroats To A Pound stands out to the eye and hear thank to the title. Not only does this song have an orchestral piano soundscape, there is a presence of ambient sound over a drum kit. The ambience is really nice with the lush piano soundscape.
I rate this EP 5/5*****!!
