"Enter: Unschooled Records Compilation V1.0" CD
Genres: electronica, experimental
1289 N. Fordham Blvd.
Chapel Hill, NC
Sep 29 - Oct 5 2003
is the first release on new label Unschooled Records, a project run by
electronic music lover Howard Hecht, who is dedicated to
spreading the world about new artists. There is definitely a lot
of talent present here, and for a debut release on a new label there's
plenty to get excited about.
As can be expected the focus here is on unknowns. Doofgoblin's
"Frzed" goes straight for the gusto with a slab of
incredibly complex techno but is one-upped with the
fuck-with-your-head crunchcore of Decomposure's
"Matches." Cloudscapes' "Goyle" is an
industrial electronic track of powerful proportion. Other
highlights are Sonic Wallpaper's gliding "I Am Watching
You," Powdermonkey's brooding "In From the
Cold," and Turbogeek's wicked "Squiggle." Naton
Rozenburg's videogame-ish bit of pop, "Electronic Seal's
Paradise," is also an excellent track.
Enter is an unexpected gem from a label that's just begun to
get it's feet dirty on the scene. If you enjoy independent
electronic music, this comp might very well appeal to you.
