Inside The Voice Inside ~ electronica review (by metal guy)

Cyberset Music presents Pete Ardron Inside The Voice Inside

Review by Tim Fennell

This recording comes to us from Cyberset, a label that promotes themselves as developing the careers of artists that are creating music that “emphasizes community, personal growth, social conscience, and ecological awareness.” I think this is fantastic. I truly believe in spreading a word through the music, I really do.

From the Cyberset website: “No stranger to creating sacred chill spaces and taking an audience on an aural frequency mind trip, Pete Ardron has been doing this for more than a decade and released outstanding albums on Liquid Sound, Universal Egg and Ultra Vista Recordings. Cyberset has licensed two of his latest creations that will please most ambient, downtempo and chillout aficionados.
Inside The Voice Inside takes a listener into vocal atmospheres, deeply dubbed grooves, jazz inspired rhythms and pretty much influences from all sides of electronica, all wound together into an intricate and delightful listening experience that will elate and enlighten as easily as it will chill.”

This record holds a background track for the applications of yoga, massage, jogging, tennis lessons… perhaps some light yard work? However, if you want me to tell you what I think is exciting about the record, I can’t. This is nothing I haven’t heard before. It sounds like something one would hear in a Pepsi commercial, or something you would hear just before your favorite motivational speaker jumped on stage to teach you how to fix your life. (Here’s where the “create” discrepancy returns.) Quite frankly, it sounds like something anybody could do, so long as they have a Macbook with Garage Band and Fruity Loops plus a simple ability to copy and paste, and -bang! – “Check out this song I just created!” I’m sorry, CD this is not my favorite! I felt it could have reached a much better potential, and it took a long time getting to the point. Loop, sample, loop, sample, all day long. Makes me yawn. Go see what you think about it at cybersetmusic.com/?p=312 and at myspace.com/cyberset. I take consideration that it is filed under as Ambient/Downtempo/Chillout, fittingly so. I do think and hope that this record will contribute to the improvement of something, and for that I will give it 5 stars. The music, however… not so much.

[Editor’s note: Eh, perhaps electronica wasn’t the best choice of review material to give Tim Motus to write about. I however find this stuff lovely, but hey, to each their own cup of tea. So maybe next time I’ll look for a dance-clubber to take the it, LOL! 🙂 Tim’s ear-scorching North County San Diego dark metal band MOTUS can be found on myspace at myspace.com/motus. ~RR]
