ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Attention to the details of songwriting, beat construction, and musicianship are the substance of djezi's first commercial musical offering this is a test....

An instrumental album equal parts percussive and melodic, aggressive and relaxed, capable of leaving electronic fans shaking, hip-hop heads with their jaws on the floor, chill-out cats quivering, and trip-hoppers feeling nice for a second or two; this is a test... is as pure as it gets.

With thick layers of instrumentation, samples and beats marked by djezi's trademark for switching styles (sometimes mid-groove!) to keep you engaged, djezi is able to combine the melodic eclectics of Boards of Canada with the experimental aesthetics of Aphex Twin and the bold beats of DJ Shadow. All while crafting a tightly produced EP appealing to hip-hop, chill-out, and electronic fans alike (with close attention paid to the head-nod, foot-tap, and rump-shake).

To put it another way, djezi's this is a test... is music that requires much of the listener. It assumes the listener is intelligent and unwilling to compromise his tastes and hasn't forgotten how good music makes you move and feel. djezi exists to create inspired music for the inspired listener.

Here is an album that is multi-faceted without being unfocused or cluttered. This is the album you can road-trip with. This is the album you can crank at the party. This is the album you can sip a drink to. This is a test. Relax, it's open mind.

Can't stop. Won't stop. The man has a beat for every occasion.
'This is a Test' bangs across the board. From the moodiness of 'Xperiments' to the heavy funk of, well, 'Fungk,' I love getting lost in the big beats and the atmospheric strings. I was a DJ for many years, and this stuff is as good as anything that Mo' Wax or Ninja Tune ever released.

Yummy!
I got This is a Test in the mail a few days ago, and I've been listening to it non-stop since. This is so great! It's rare to find something that both tickle your intellect and make you wanna tap your feet...
