The Internalization Of Mässy
The 14 previously-unreleased tracks on The Internalization Of Mässy make up a compilation offering a worldwide vision of the skweee sound in its current stages of development, bringing the many different strands of the style together in a unique way; these tracks link the positive feeling they share, beyond similarities found in technique or rhythm. These musicians do not underestimate their listeners, everything you hear is created without trying to give the audience what they think they want -- instead, the record offers the possibility to its user to enlarge their capacity of receiving sonic information. As a phenomenon, skweee has grown steadily and reached wider audiences, while new labels are always popping out, and promising new artists emerge to influence the whole field of modern electronic production. In terms of music, global dispersion has made skweee more diverse, as its practitioners take ideas and inspiration from each other and then develop in different directions. In the almost physical stadium-sized synthesis of Mother North, the drum machinery of Jyrkkä Pajulaakso, or Spartan Lover's rugged touch, these sounds convey something to turn on and energize any life-form. Some of these tracks are more direct and "easier" to get right away, whereas others present a more intriguing listening challenge, inviting repeat plays, each time provoking new ways of thinking about that piece. There's enough texture to get you hooked and enough depth to take you far beyond, into what scientists call "the zone." Other artists include: Misk, Randy Barracuda, Coco Bryce, Stickem, V.C., Motem, Beatbully, Hybakusha and Drums.
