CD Review: sub-ID - BFF
sub-ID - BFF
2008, 1320 Records
sub-ID mines the breakbeats of electronic music for the latest sounds, creating a musical kabuki that turns you to and from the shadows on a syncopated beat. BFF is a musical exploration of the conscious and subconscious through sonic dissonance that resolves into consonant bliss. BFF is the debut recording from sub-ID, which has been playing around the Midwest for the past three years.
Highlights are The Raven & The Ruby, BFF, Marges and The Return. This is the sort of mid-tempo electronic music that falls somewhere in between the dance floor and contemplative meditation. Jazz elements inform the electronic art form and infuse a human element into the electronic muse. It's a worthy debut from a creative and original band.
Rating: 3 Stars (Out of 5)
