REVIEW: V/A – Oddness Vol. IV


On many occasions, the world of music is similar to that of the stock market, and the attention paid to an artist depends on his ability to be ubiquitous, to never step on the brake. There are those who are ‘up’ more for the gift of timing and persistence than for the true quality of their music, and then we have those who are down. But thanks to labels like Bonkers, they have managed to ensure that some artists, of indisputable quality and musical trajectory, ignored by market trends, can emerge and reappear in the most fair way, as is the case that concerns us now, their compilation Vol. 4

The legendary Bonkers compilation is back, with artists like She Teiks, Globemaster, Stylic & Dark Places, Wonder Talking and Rimaye.

Featuring the incredible Argentinian duo She Teiks, landing with ‘De Ronda Voy’ is an exciting song born out of a pre-club party. Infectious bass vibes keep us moving, while the catchy lead lines infuse us with energy that immerses us in the nightlife experience. This song takes us straight to the dance floor and invites us on a night adventure through various clubs.

From the north of Mexico, part of the Maleante Records family, Globemaster delivers a unique jewel with ‘Un alien me llevo de rave’, a soundscape that places you on some distant planet, where raves and music are part of the rituals. . . The most important thing is that the theme opens with an atmosphere of tension, the use of synthesizers and sound effects create the sensation of being transported to an unknown place, it leaves us feeling a new appreciation of the universe and its mysteries, in general, it is a immersive and introspective tracking.

Straight from the heart of Spain, Madrid producers Stylic & Dark Places present: Wack! With this new song, an explosive combination of Trance and Future Disco, that will keep you captivated with its hard-hitting rhythms and the characteristic touch of this duo.
Strange! It is charged with energy and has a good high to lift you to that cosmic dimension.

Wonder Talking debuts on the label and offers a mysterious addition, with ‘Trip Tick’ beginning with an off-key Arabic melody, the backing track transitioning to a heavy dancefloor theme. Shaped analog synth arpeggio, transitioning from flying over the kick drum beat to a vague roaring synth sound. All components mix and lead with a short pulsing bass with a strong kick drum and an evenly floating percussion backing, forcing listeners to move to the beat of this dark track.

Last but not least we have Rimaye, born in France and based in Miami, he just starred in ‘Foxglove.’ Inspired by the peak season of spring, the upbeat first-person song hides a hidden toxic substance, giving Oddness a unique ending. vol. IV, it’s definitely always a different journey with each Volume.

The production level of these guys is intense but, on the other hand, the care of the sounds they release is at the level of those who do things because they want and with the time they really need. They are, then, productions that when you get close to them the halo they give off catches you: rare, singular and, here comes the best, powerful, magnetic and danceable. Beats that mark but without overwhelming us, an oldschool (authentic) touch, somewhat eccentric synthesizers and a rather cheerful and festive general tone, are some of the adjectives that we can pull off our sleeves if we want to qualify this innovative proposal.

Each producer summarizes his intentions in this compilation, seeking novelty without losing nostalgia, playing with the genre but without falling into predictable tricks, or the arrogance of someone who casts himself in a genre or mannerism to show that he has personality. Paradoxically, to achieve simplicity and lucidity requires experience and the ability to know how to free oneself from the limitations of conditioning, and this first compilation is a healthy example of this.
