ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Exposed to the earliest forms of house music in the mid 80’s, there at the start of Acid House and Techno, They were seen at Sunrise, Energy, Biology, Fantasia and Raindance.

The massive events held in defiance of the police and music industry.

This in turn led to Madchester and Britpop, now we are looking back and to the future with the London II Tokyo album.

A lot of the same music is being played on commercial radio and in clubs, bars and television adverts. This along with a lack of invention in the mainstream has led to the music being forced back to its underground roots.

We are here.

House music. In a time when Simply Red, Rick Astley and Wet Wet Wet bestrode the world like smiley pop gods, it came to offer escape, salvation and the blissful numbness of a killer bassline. Of course, it all mutated into Big Beat, dance music and Christopher Walken pirouetting around a hotel lobby. But there is a corner of east London that is forever 1989. Producer Lee Farrell and singer Gizella, AKA Time Pilot, describe themselves as “Space cadets originally from the 20th Century.” And from this lp, it seems clear that their mission is to bring back the era of the never-ending 12-inch remix.

Across the 10 tracks here, the duo manage to conjure up a surprisingly fresh-sounding mix of clever-but-cool pop. “Reprise” has the infectious throb of Robin S’s “Show Me Love.” Meanwhile, “Time Stands Still” shimmers with languid piano as “Back In The Day” takes a funkier route akin to Crystal Waters’s “100% Real Love.” “Tokyo Disco” mixes things up with a touch of Portishead-style dark dramatics, but throughout Gizella’s smoky vocals are intertwined and overlayed with enchanting ease.

Elsewhere, Time Pilot go for something a bit less chart-friendly, but no less hypnotic. “We Are Here” and “Sharp Blue” are both throbbing bass odysseys, while the sputtering beats of the brief-but-edgy “Centreforce 1989” have a taste of early Prodigy to them. The closing Highpoint is entertainingly random as it moves here and there with a bundle of beats and effects. However, “Island Times” offers the biggest surprise with the shocking inclusion of an acoustic guitar. It’s a tripped-out dreamscape of Sunday morning Massive Attack. And proof that you don’t have to resort to Snow Patrol to wind down. Yet, as with everything here, Time Pilot take basic elements and shape them into a rich and varied finger buffet of dance delights.

Smother Magazine

Nice!
They had me at house music in the bio-sheet. Reading on I find that Time Pilot is comprised of vocalist Gizella and producer Lee Farrell and are based out of East London. Steering towards acid house, gay house, and dirty techno, Time Pilot boasts thick floor filler anthems with sickly acid lines eeking their way through the mix. Thoughtfully crafted, each song could easily be picked up by the world’s best DJs and/or heard on Pete Tong’s broadcast on Radio One. Nice!
