Danko - Eskimonika
And now Danko takes us to the hard electronica end of this great album's range love it
Review by LaLa
Eskimonikais a SID I wasn't familiar with before - made in 2008 by Dane (of Mitch & Dane fame) and here reworked by Danko in a way only Danko can. Twisting and distorting sounds to his will, but still keeping the original melodies intact results in a pretty
hardelectronic piece that remains hugely listenable (or as Mr. Clarke - who is no fan of the genre - would say,
tolerable… Quite the compliment, haha!). It's not really
unz-unzmusic, though, because its rhythm is genre-defying, but it's still unmistakably Danko-esque with memorable melody lines played with crystal-clear synths backed by complex arpeggiated rhythms. Also, thank you, Tomas, for introducing me to this hidden gem of a SID!
