ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Solovox is the sound of keyboardist and producer Carlton Tietze. Bringing together elements of melody, emotion, rhythm and keyboard prowess, Carlton has created something original. With electronic music shifting and mutating into forms that are leaving more and more listeners cold, Solovox is delivering something different...and at the same time more familiar to the ear.

Injecting soul, feeling, and a sense of playfulness is the core of the project. Gifted at the keyboards, Carlton aimed at merging modern dance and downtempo production with vintage synthesizers and classic funk stylings. The results are here, as the debut Solovox CD, Break Out Of Prism has been released.


Merging every conceivable style of electronica into a supremely listenable and emotionally powerful experience, Solovox is about to launch off with Break Out Of Prism. Featuring such talents as Ivan DePrume (drummer for White Zombie), Jen Folker (vocalist for Dahlia), as well as vocalist Lea Krueger, this keyboardist/performer/producer has created a stunning work of melody, rhythm, and sheer guts.

From the hard cosmic funk of "Mosquito," to the Euro-Trance thump of "Am I The One?" to the epic beauty of "All Souls Are Saved," this is the work of an artist too versatile to make a generic "electronic" album.


Solovox is a three-year experiment that is now reaching it's true potential. Reinvigorated by the variety of electronic music in 2001, Tietze decided to find out what happens when a keyboardist of rock and funk merged with state-of-the-art production in the digital realm. The results have been explosive in the Portland club scene, as Solovox blurs the line between a DJ and a band. Moving from vintage synthesizers to the most modern software emulations, he flows from one keyboard to another, while improvising with all-original loops and samples created for the show. From downtempo lounge to funk to house, even to psy-trance...the crowd just dances and enjoys. And the thrill of watching it all happen live is a treat that few other acts can follow. And as someone who has been playing keyboards since the Reagan administration, the musicality of a Solovox show is often unheard of in the realm of today's electronic scene.

Varied, creative, emotional, and full of heart, this is melodic music. Riding a unique line between making you want to dance, feel, or just be funky, the debut CD is sure to provide an eclectic and extremely listenable experience.

Herr Schoun

Beautiful and powerful. Instantly attractive.
About 55 minutes of entertaining, easy-to-get-into, and technically impressive music. This CD quite literally became one of my favorites almost instantly because of the wide range of emotion and style found on the CD, solid climaxes, and attractive rhythms.

This is AWESOME!

If you people want real music, this is it. Mixed together in the most delicate way, he strikes like an arrow straight into that little box of enjoyment we carry around inside of us. Yes - this will blow up!!!
Thanks for being a soulfull genious/

Solovox Rocks!
Solovox rocks! Lots of fun...a creative blend of chops, technology, and heart tuggin' harmonic/melodic phrasing with serious grooves.

Clint Darling

Emerson AND Lake AND Palmer rolling in buttshake electronica.
From the opening notes you'll know that you're taking an electronic trip down dancehall lane. The Reverend Carl brings the best of the freaky to a gangbang smackdown of fiery-fingered virtuosity.

Reminiscent of Shpongle or a good night at Burning Man, the album has cross-genre ease that gets it above the crowd. Check out the opening cut or go directly to Unstoppable Machine for a dance finale.

Ga-rooooovy.

Great album 5!!
This is a really a great album, and I give it a 5. although I say thats I was expect$ng more of some singinmg and sounds but still it is a good one but. also and all is there a way to get a poster/? i like the person on the cover he looks like i would loook isif i was more like a super-heroe with rainbow power.

quantum

A new experience in sound
I'll put this album on my list of epiphanies of just what music CAN be.

"Prism" is a novel blend of electronica, trance, and (something that the other two often lack) melody. The voice work here is hypnotic. The entire album rolls itself into a singularly infectious package, the kind that stays with you and remains fresh after many listenings.

Zenja

Solid!
Fantastic funk. One listen and you know you're hearing a true artist shine. This cat has a firm understanding of music and a unique, fresh style that i just keep jamming in my stereo. Great work, brutha.

Martin Greenaway

Great Album!
Thank you CD baby for making it possible for me to own this album. It is a real shame that Solovox isn't better known in Australia. Every track on this disk is gold!

digg'in it
I love cruisin the new music scene and it's really rare to actually find something A: new/unique and B: good. A call to arms, unstoppable machine and mourn for the queen are must listens. Solovox's funk undertones get the grove on while the eletronics make you want to move.

paul mitchell

it'll seep into your brain and detonate.
i got turned on to break out of prism while at burning man this year. i danced my ass off to this dude's music. i have not yet pulled it out of my player, i play the shit out of it. track one lights it up, it's a creepy, beating, late-night ripper. track seven, am i the one that you want, good god, i could listen to that fucker all day long. i can't ever remember being more stoked about a cd. my friends find it hard to believe that a jam band fan could go techno, but that's how it is, this cd rips it up and i have yet to take it out of my palyer. i am hooked.
