Calling on archive and vintage material from previous work, Special Request has utilised modern know-how and techniques to build something truly indulgent and nicely layered. The sound-a-like to most electro artists' early work to amateur sounds can be detected but the mastering and mix delivery is so well attuned that no-one in a bedroom could do this, unless they happen to be a professional of course. It is all done on computers., after-all. One would like to think that Special Request works in more appropriate surroundings, a bar perhaps, or a nice beach somewhere. Who knows?
Returning with a vintage vibe has been a gamble, as electronic music needs to be cutting edge to slice the proverbial cake, using old hat sounding licks and fills was risky. However, there's a lot to be said for those who love to take it back a few years and remember how cool something used to be. And the hell why not ? It's all in the mind anyway and if it was cool then, it's cool now with the right attitude. Luckily we're given all the trimmings of a pro mixing job, the cutting and pasting has truly made a meal out of the old raw ingredients, one that's nutritious and worthy of a few healthy nods - in the right places of course.
The digital album is available to listen to, pre-order and buy now.
