Between all the Electro releases during the storm at the end of 2010, this U.F.O is worth more attention. If you have already listened to the “Mind of Metal” album, you are still under addiction… If you haven’t, you are missing something seriously heavy :
AS1 – Save it for another
AS1 is a workaholic : music producer, graphic designer and also the brain of the prolific electro label : TRANSIENT FORCE.
In 2009, Under the alias AS1, Arnold Steiner [Miami] has produced & dealt 4 albums in the whole year. During 2010, He has released only 1 album (“Code Reference”) and 1 E.P. Not enough for a workman isn’t it?
Bang, Bang… at the end of 2010, AS1 releases his new album entitled “Mind of Metal” including … 33 tracks for a pure dose of electronics music! This project is simply blow your mind and with such a quantity & a quality of tracks it needs to be listened again and again to get all the effects.
Well produced as usual, It could be estimated like the great continuity of backgrounds built along of his discography.
The AS1’s style is a great diversity of sounds : tracks with heavy bass, fast beats with a melancholic melody, deep electro with low bass, dark beat, trippy electro, experimental electronics, freaky remixes…All these ways can explain the overdose of tracks. AS1 is definitely prolific & he is living in its time & beyond… He seems to be a rare artist to keep a kind of groove over the bass and he has a finest taste in that brand production. Thanks to this album, AS1 has reconfirmed again his talent. No doubt, currently he is on the top 3 electro producers. After that, we don’t know what will be the next level for this artist but please give all your attention to his heavy “Mind of Metal” album… Highly Recommended!
