The debut album "Slime Man" from electonica artist Busby is an extremely diverse album. The album spans just over an hour. Most of "Slime Man" is Dance or Drum n Bass, but there are pepperings of other genres such as experimental dance; as seen in Akufuck, a track composed ONLY of dance style drums and Busby's diversely manipulated voice.
A large part of this album is dance music. His dance tracks Optimism and Struttin Down Braddock Road may stir up memories of Dirty Vegas and Daft Punk, but he definately has his own sound seperate from his influences. Other dance tracks such as Tasty Monster and Miss Chicken further define his own niche in dance.
The second most dominant subgenre of electonica in "Slime Man" is Drum n Bass. His drum n bass normally stays around 165 beats per minute, middle of the road tempo so far as drum n bass goes. Tracks such as Ice Bath and Acid Rain leave their mark on the listener; the intensity of the music rocks you. The production quality is extremely professional in all the tracks on "Slime Man." The songs are mixed so the bass is acceptable on all systems, but some songs such as The Morning After, Tasty Monster, and Acid Rain will tempt you to test out the limits of your stereo system.
He touches on trip hop with slight industrial influences, in the opening track Closure, which features Mike Fernandez. Later on in the album he has another trip hop influenced track, Sexy Giraffe, a grooving, chill instrumental.
The second to last track on the album features the singer/songwriter Stephanie George in "No Clue." The second half of this song really shines through, and this is the closest to trance he reaches on this album.
Overall a captivating and incredibly diverse album, "Slime Man" is the product of 4 years of dj Busby's musical career.
