ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reduced Phat 2%
Catalog#RED01

Info:
Enduser, Edgey and Subsektor, each provide two original tracks and remix one track by each of their collaborators. Two tracks per artist, six remixes, for a total of twelve tracks. With the 2% project Reduced Phat goes beyond the pedestrian efforts of your typical electronic label and pushed past the confines of the dreary "compilation" album. 2% is the showcase of three unique talents; both as single artists and as re-mixers.
Mastered by: Atomic Studious

Reduced Phat may hail from the sunshine state, but there is nothing South Beach cool or pastel-hued about this drum n' bass compilation. That shouldn't come as a surprise considering that the three participants aren't from Florida but instead from fiercely tough-minded cities: Stephen Knight (Edgey) is from New York City, Lynn Standafer (Enduser) is from Cincinnati, and Jason Chambers is from Calgary.

While they may not be united by geography, they are in sound. All three have studied well from breakcore and darkcore masters like Panacea, Atari Teenage Riot and the No-U-Turn gang as well as Dillinja and the Aphex Twin. Each performer is given two tracks to strut his stuff and two to re-mix. All tracks possess the usual elements you would expect from those influences: grandnoise acid synth stabs, distorted bin-rattling bass bombs, white noise, dread-inducing atmospherics, horror-movie samples, and a combination of "Amen" breaks, two-step hardcore, and pummeling, bludgeoning broken beats. It all adds up to the usual distopian landscape, though not all of the pieces are bleaker than bleak. Standafer's "Death Vest" maintains a nice tension between angelic voices and serene orchestrations and its contrasting slamming beats, acid smears, and bass detonators, while Chambers' "The Breed," with its glissando Rhodes and two-step beat, is like LTJ Bukem and Ed Rush sharing a car and fighting over the steering wheel. Unfortunately, the remixes don't radically depart from the originals with the re-tooling more tinkering than dramatic overhauling.

While these artists don't break any new ground, they do acquit themselves well. With that in mind, hopefully this compilation will birth a new drum n' bass renaissance.

noise, speedcore, terror: broken-up beats, rolling jungledrums, snaring snares and screaming synths, dark sounds, which cause apocalyptic visions and paranoid attacks - all that and more give the three artists: Enduser, Subsektor and Edgey, who appear here with two of their own tracks, two of which are in turn remixed by both others. Each of the three young ones have their own style, in which the classical jungle influences are most apparent with Subsektor, where Enduser goes for contrasts and Edgey for roughness. An interesting concept on an interesting label from Florida, that you should really check out if you like high-speed drums and get raised neck hairs from jungle-noises in a wild-brutal, metallic-industrial noise context - Katamin

The first album off Florida's Reduced Phat label has marked the music world with the brilliant 2% non-compilation. For starts, the trigger-release CD case lets you know you have something different and good in your hands. Drum'n'Bass, break core and electronica fuse three musicians into one cohesive and addictive sect of the post-industrial sub-genre. Enduser, Subsektor and Edgey are the artists spotlighted with two original tracks each and those same two tracks remixed by the other two artists, for a total of 12 solid tracks. Not only is it a great idea to introduce three artists in this format, but also, this is an innovative way to get the goods out there without being cheated by one good track on a compilation. Enduser brings it on with a pop and lock of forcefully elegant bass and rapid beats on "Death Vest" and "Broken Target." Then Subsektor brings it with intense chaos and deliciously abrasive rhythms consumed in ominous textures on "The Breed." Edgey puts it all on the table with schizoid madness on "Brutalities End" and "Indigna". The six remixes are carefully cut up and masterfully pieced back together into even more mutanized glitchiness. Talent does not fall short with these three caffeinated beat masters. I can confidently say that you do not have to be a fan of Drum'n break-tronica to easily be won over with 2% of Reduced Phat. This is the first of three very promising non-compilations.

From the newly formed label, Reduced Phat, comes this anti-compilation, various artists release that announces the label's intent with gusto. I say "anti-compilation" because unlike most label comps that throw in everything that's passable that washes up on their shores, the Reduced Phat manifesto calls for paying attention only to the very cream of the crop of possible artists and releases that are all struggling to be heard.
Featuring two tracks and two remixes a piece from Enduser, Edgey, and Subsektor, the disc feels more like a fun exchange between a VIP group of like-minded artists than a collection of random and disconnected tracks from whomever happens to be out there. Starting with Enduser's unabashed homage to Lush, 2% quickly kicks into high gear and doesn't relent for five and a half tracks until a break in Edgey's "Indigna" calms things down for laughs. Enduser brings his road-tested production to the mix with his two splintered originals and remixes for his partners that eviscerate and then reconstruct their grooves with demented jungle abandon. Subsektor offers up the most straightforward take on hard drum n bass, but his tracks are no less confrontational. Edgey's superb reworking of "Death Vest" into a hard stomping mid-tempo piece is probably my favorite track, but Enduser's treatment of Subsektor's "The Breed" is equally fun and shows once again why Enduser is the master at mashed up drum n bass madness. Clocking in at just over an hour for 12 tracks, 2% provides all the essential breaks and bass without cluttering the mix with disposable or throw-away tracks. Edgey brings the weirdness, Enduser fractures the beats, and Subsektor provides the hooks and it all works without ever sounding like too much. As much as I liked the Carbon compilation that approached breakbeat music with a similar sensibility, this record feels more coherent and less kitchen sink. Whenever a new label jumps into the game of releasing records into a market that is increasingly unfriendly to physical CDs and untested products and brands, I get a little nervous. When the releases are as good as this one though, I can only hope enough people take notice to make the enterprise the success it deserves to be

Beats tight like childhood friends :-D
When i first heard some of the artists' stuff on myspace, i was truly impressed though not blown over with passion :-) then, i hear from Vanessa on her bulletin that there is a donation to Katrina victims if you buy this disc...so i order it thankfully (thanks, guys! :-) some of my friends' who lived near the beach & in New Orleans lost everything (i mean that literally), so while going to the coast to help out with the Salvation Army while at a fellow DJ's house (that wasn't destroyed thankfully...thanks again, Jozef!!), this disc arrived in the mail when i got back. i pop it in...i listen...i remember how much i miss my DNB. almost all my friends are house/breaks lovers; they don't understand (sniff! sob!). i love all styles, but i really love what the boys 'n girls on Reduced Phat are doing...it kinda reminded me of the early experimentalism of Amon Tobin & many things Ninja Tune/Scam/Warp. the difference being that it's contemporary...it's the next step. ya gots da balls, ma friends. nice job, folks...really sweet. lookin' forward to more...SO KEEP ME POSTED, FUCKAHS!!

...and thanks again for the soul, heart, & Spirit...
you rock ;-D
