The Franco-Canadian and Berlin-based producer Sheldon Thompson (aka Pan/Tone, Gringo Grinder ) aka Sid LeRock presents his third album Tout Va Bien, with 11 fresh and bright tracks that never stop rocking. All his work can be described as very personal electronic music that keeps on searching for the human touch -- the errors, wrong paths and trials that one can find in all creative works. The computer and electronic instruments are just alternate ways to create sound and rhythm, just as with drums, guitars, and bass. Sid Le Rock makes use of all these mediums and fights to stray away from the machine's calculated ways of the straight track. Human error is vital. Tracks such as "Swollen Member," "Incliner," and "Pow Wow" are examples of great, rocking, funk tunes with the typical Sid tchak (snare/clap/boom!) style, combined with classical, melodic rock riffs and techno bass patterns. And best of all, are the wonderful hidden gems with amazing vocal tracks such as "Still Life" and "Walk Alone" -- classical songs, classical moods, and wonderfully charming singing from a bearded man. After the bankruptcy of Ladomat, Sid LeRock was without a home, so he focused his attention on his other alias, Pan/Tone and his own imprints, Cereal/Killers and Beachcoma. As Pan/Tone, he released with Kompakt, Sender, and Sub-Static and completed some random productions as Sid LeRock with remixes for Depeche Mode, Gui Boratto, Fairmont and Placebo. It took him 4 years to return to a big Sid LeRock album, and it's about time.
