real treat in April. The new Loopus in Fabula
album is out and about. The Italian duo's sound has come a long way since 1998. If you ever had the luck to meet Matteo Stroppa
you would have noticed a positive artist dedicated to the scene as much as to his music. Eager to generate and explore new sounds in what we call psytrance. Himself and Loopus co-founder Jacopo Barbaccia
bring a fresh approach to trance life in this album.
So, in true funkedelic spirit Loopus attacks with Fat Ladies Bingo
, an odyssey into the funky, quircky and upbeat psychedelic paradox.
The CD kicks off patiently with funky-soft Doofy Duck
. The methodical rhythmic Controversy
continues with a stronger kick and more hypnotic tech-trance funkodelia.
LIB enter a new domain with the slightly darker Dreamschwartz
. Next YSD
has that familiar Fabula flavor closer to the experimental Aussie sound.Fat Old Ladies
takes a more twisted but funny approach clearly showing that Loopus in Fabula
still want to have fun without taking things too seriously.Funky Express
is possibly the equivalent of a psytrance chick flick. Just look around you on the dancefloor with this one.Feel again
, another gem from the Fabula stables, a funky fresh sound with an electro-twist. Just what the doctor ordered.Rockit
is another experimental affair with some juicy ambient breaks and sounds. It implodes instead of exploding.
Loopus go out with a Funk here with the wah wah guitar driven Let's Dance
The best sound from Loopus, one of the most original bands in the scene, to date.8/10
