Published Jul 15, 2014The diverse artists of Sonic-Mind Records pool their talents together to bring a high-energy compilation called Cosmic Computer to the table, and the name is fitting, considering the space-like, synth-heavy flow throughout the entire album. Reaching into both heavy and Detroit-style techno, house, minimal and funk elements, sprinkled with vocals throughout, Cosmic Computer keeps the listener entertained with a variety of music, from the dreamy opener "Dublin Nights" by Alphacode to the bass-laden closer "Body Intelligence" by D-Knox and Spiritman.
The compilation's sixth number, "Minetism" by Fabrice Lig, is the record's hottest, a fast and heavy yet minimal techno creation that is the perfect departure from its preceding track, the slow and trippy "Faded Blue" by Mike Tate, which features beautiful, captivating lyrics. Upbeat dance floor sizzler "Alpha and Omega" by Chance McDermott, is another gem. Each of the ten numbers is distinct, giving this album a constant varying flow that works surprisingly well.
