Genres: electronica, loops
May 5 - 11 2003
is an independent techno outfit set up by the
owner of the now-defunct Skunkative label. He takes a loop-based
approach to his music (think Sonic Foundry or Fruitloops), using
simple looped beats and synth patterns to construct his songs.
Although this often comes off as being very amateurish, some of the music is
still enjoyably catchy and accessible.
Songs like "Special Pervert" are so obviously looped that
it hurts, but every once in a while you get a gem like "3rd
Song" that shows Jamm3r's ear for melody and
atmosphere. Unfortunately, dreck like "Lazy Day" and
"Krishna" also ends up on here as well, and in sadly high
concentrations in comparison to the better tracks.
This is an alright release, but not one that will appeal to that
many audiences - mainly because chances are, if you can appreciate
what Jamm3r does, you'd probably be able to make something
equally good yourself with a $400 copy of Sonic Foundry Acid.
