Here is the EP we have been so eagerly waiting for. “A for Amiga” is a 7 track EP that should be viewed as an ontological musical work of the Golden Age of the Commodore Amiga scene. We really believed these days were over, but here is an artist that doesn’t need to be in the 90s anymore to be able to do proper, and we mean it, really good oldskool scene music. Getting away from the monotonous and predictable Techno sound of today he seduces us with Rainbow-Multi-layered harmonies and kaleidoscopic Synth leads that drive this EP into a non-stop explosion of incredible musical ideas. Not only brilliant from the Harmonic point of view, cTrix is also a versatile drum programmer. It’s an EP that tells us that this man knows everything about the Amiga scene and that there is little you can do about it.
With styles ranging From Prog-jazz to Retro-synthpop, this EP will definitely bring you back to the Sound of the computing underground of the 90s.
Mixed by Markus Ingram & cTrix at Sunshine Recorder, Melbourne, Australia. Cover artwork by Mirco Monsees.
