Isoke – How To Seduce Cyborgs 12″ – Eargasmic Recordings

EGC4019This one is an all Chicago affair with hometown boy Isoke’s first solo release on Chicago’s Eargasmic Recordings. However, for the title track that really is where the Chicago-ness of this record ends. This one sounds much more like Ken Ishii or the like with its driving pace, thick percussion and heavily layered synths. There’s no lack of groove here however, and placed just right into a techno set this one (or the “Bonus Beats” that follow it) could really pick up the room. On the flip is “Aliyah – Part 1, 2, 3” which truly is more of a listening affair with numerous lush ambient moments interspersed with kicks and simple beats.Altogether, this is a creative and thought provoking release, but that’s what you’d expect from an artist who’s bio describes him as “a self-proclaimed dorklectic– a little bit geeky, a lot-o-bit dorky and a tad bit nerdy. His productions are a hodgepodge of all of his interests; he’s inspired by the things he loves. Television, video games, comic books, sci-fi, anime, horror, visual art, film, and books are all influential to his creativity.”
