many will debate its worthiness of being deemed an "electronic
classic", few can argue that Red Snapper's beautiful
musical journey hasn't has a powerful influence on the modern
electronica scene. Spanning too many electronic genres to count,
Red Snapper teaches us a lot more about techno than any fish
has. Tracks like "Quicktemper" and "The Sleepless"
tastefully combine Snapper's electronic beats and melody with
rapping vocalists, and the exquisite "Image Of You" propels
a female voice to pure cinematic soundscape bliss. Meanwhile, Snapper's
instrumental tracks offer a variety of moods and textures. His
talent for flawlessly combining intricate, non-synthesized
instrumentation with complex beats comes out especially well on
"The Tunnel", a jazz-injected piece of electro-Heaven.
While by no means the next Autobahn, Making Bones
remains a modern electronic classic in its own right.
Bones was released on September 28, 1998]
