-----------------

What started out as a way of combating stress and a series of bad attacks of anxiety, a world started to emerge that Solitoode could escape to. A world where there was no stress. A world that gave him no anxiety. He wanted a world that had none of these things. So he created one! This is where he goes and magically transforms into the person that he always wanted to be. A person that is happy. A person that greets everyone and happy to see them. Because in this world, everyone is kind. Everyone helps everyone. Unfortunately, he can not stay in that world forever. Unfortunately, he can not take you to this world either. So what he has done is brought back the music that is in this world. So this way, perhaps it can help you build your own world for you to escape into.

What was created in this world was music that is dimensioned with sound. Basically, it is all about the sound, the depth and the arrangement of the sounds to allow anyone, no matter what language they speak, to fully submerge themselves into a musical experience to call their own and make it timeless. May it bring you happiness!

Solitoode Attitoode is about creating and composing instrumental music that has an upbeat, positive touch. Some of the music is for the sheer pleasure of listening, while others are geared more to get your toe tapping and maybe even getting you to shake your tush.

In staying true to the sound, the music took full advantage of the new generation of format with the 5.1 surround sound. The songs were originally recorded using all six channels before being mixed down to stereo using the Dolby Pro Logic II technology. Thoughts are to put out a DVD version in the future to take full advantage of playback on your home theater system where the music can be heard the way it really was meant to be heard, resulting in a sound exploration for the listener!

The first album was released in June of 2008. Currently working on bringing a second album from the world of Solitoode.

Debut With 'Toode!
Pulsating rhythms and synth-riffs are the order of play for the debut release of Solitoode Attitoode. Building on a signature groovy electro-sound, Larry Amos (he IS Solitoode Attitoode) constructs enchanting melodies with exquisitely layered choruses. The CD, formatted in 5.1 Surround Sound and mixed down to stereo using Dolby Pro Logic II technology, has an unmistakable uplifting feel. One could easily imagine how wonderful the disc would be were it played in three-dimensional sound. The shifting sonic layers at first listen will sound familiar to fans of Yaz or the electro-heavy "Days Go By" by Dirty Vegas. But, listening to the slightly more intricate and densely mastered "Tinker Lane", the last cut on the disc, I'd swear I was listening to Rick Wakeman had I not known better.

Avoiding the tired and dreaded rave sound that has seemed to overtake traditional electronic music of late, Solitoode Attitude is a throwback to the rhythmic expressions that launched careers for bands like Erasure, New Order, Jimmy Sommerville and Alison Moyet. That's not to say that Amos is strictly "old school" and in fact it would be a disservice to categorize this disc as such. But the foundation is there layered with added nuance utilizing more modern dance inclinations and a touch of pop songcraft to boot.

Three uplifting, grand anthems open the disc and establish the identity which Amos has created. "Bright Light", "Destiny Calling" and "Downtown In Dreamtown" evoke enlightenment and illumination. Swathes of rapturous synth and punchy rhythmic beats twist daytime-friendly melodies with a touch of halycon pop and enough shifting shoegaze to get your feet moving independently of your body.

"Insatiable" burns in rhythmic resonance, a pulsating blast with house-party aspirations that keeps its riotously frenzied pace for over nine minutes. "Spinning The World" is the standout song on this disc, obviously made with trance dancing in mind, exposing it's electronic underside that works not despite, but because it eliminates overstated disco sirens and tiring bass bass beats in favor of a falsetto synth sound that simply kicks ass. "Tinker Lane" envelops itself in lush keyboards and a stunning arrangement that retro burns into a powerful ending.

To his credit, Larry Amos handled all of the composing, writing and mixing of this disc to dizzying, emotive effect. Solitoode Attitoode percolates with elements of impassioned production and elegant layering. It is incessantly catchy with a self-assured attitude overflowing with enough stand alone tracks that is as comfortable as it is capable of commandeering your stereo system. Never ponderous or overly obtuse, Solitoode Attitoode is decidedly confident and ultimately sweet, a eloquent reminder that there is no shame in feeling good about yourself.
