Sigma Chi Primavera is the fourth release on Canada’s King Deluxe netlabel, a sister to Peppermill Records. In fact it’s a companion to the first release on King Deluxe, Madison Square Gardner, which was released in December 2010.
There’s a variety of styles of electronic genres on this album, featuring collaborations with Pixelord, Alphabets Heaven, Jack Contra, Montgomery Clunk, Satanicpornocultshop, Stephen Farris, Constrobuz, Starfawn, Bugseed, and ages.
Beginning with a subtle and dreamy “Twin Peaks” the album’s journey takes you through some chiptune inspired and positively bleepy tracks, before we hear the first of 5 remixes by 5 different artists of “Ramachandran” which first appeared on KING001.
My personal favourite track on the album is Jack Contra’s Pagliacci Reprise mix of “Lazer Opera #58008″ which does seem to cram in just about as many musical influences as it can into 4 minutes 40 seconds.
As always with King Deluxe and Peppermill you get excellent (if slightly disturbing) images to accompany the music, and for the first month of this release192kbps versions of the album will be available free. No doubt, you, dear listener, may want to go straight for the 320kbps versions. Check it out.
