This is the third full-length release by Danish artist Pixel (Jon Egeskov). The Drive is meant to be the soundtrack to his imaginary journey by car across the USA, a road movie encoded in the tracklist. With warm and deep guitar amplifier hiss and feedback in connection with floating rhythms, he creates very organic sound patterns. The music might evoke images of deserts, chemical warfare plants, rugged landscapes, rocket takeoffs and hectic suburban night life, but there is an additional level of meaning. Pixel invites the listener to discover his mise en abîme -- the image behind the image. Suggestion and impression interact and develop an astonishing force to attract the listener. The interplay of these two contrary elements allows unusual ways of traveling. The Drive is the perfect soundtrack for this journey.
