"The Most Famous Heroes"
-N Net Label
Genres: electronica, techno
The Most Famous Heroes is a set of five
tracks, each one representing a different character in some sort of
weird world Dataman has fabricated. Best of all, it's available
for free at this tremendous Japanese netlabel's website,
that wasn't enough to convince you, perhaps the promise of
beat-oriented glitchy techno will.
Dataman makes intelligent but mesmerizing electronic
music; from the quirky keyboards of "Mr. Energy" to the warped rhythms
and melodies living in "Mr Sunshine", this is thoroughly entertaining
stuff. There's an acid house flavour in most of this music, but with a
more modern and experimental flare; still, from a melodic and beat
standpoint this does not lose the audience's attention. Well-timed
grooves and vocal pieces keep smiles on faces from start to finish.
With all the boring electronic music coming out today I'm glad there's
a guy like Dataman out there to do it right while still
maintaining a sense of intrigue, and, perhaps most importantly, humour.

Fun Fact: The
characters on The Most Famous Heroes are all based on the
artist's trademark ASCII art.
