Renegade Masters EP
Gravity A's Renegade Masters is the kind of album that keeps you guessing. Each of its mostly instrumental tracks progressively solidifies its sound from a selection of improvisational stylings - electronica, jazz and funk - stacking on new layers when you least expect it.
Renegade Masters breaks out with the title track, wasting no time prodding the party to life with a funky house beat that progressively streams into a tsnuami of break-beat drumming and wailing jazz guitars. "Goofy Song" begins with a sedate-synth rhythm, smoothly easing into a soothing, down-tempo lounge groove. The album closer, "Some1 Like U,"is a steadily-paced trancey track that can both hype up a crowd, or play as a cool psychedelic vibe to chill out to - the EP's stand out song.
Gravity A's sound reminds me of a less calculated, more organic early Fatboy Slim.
As playfully unpredictable as this sampler is, it is an incomplete taste of the high-energy thrill of their live performance. And the price is right - download Renegade Masters on the house at www.GravityA.com.
