We Roll Like Madmen – Who is Heady Crystals?
It’s a pleasure for me to introduce to you We Roll Like Madmen’s eight song album titled Who is Heady Crystals? Amp up your basic channel texture, reverberation and synth sound; add in the organic vocals from the guys and their unparalleled energy and you’re ready for an amazing time. One of the great parts of this album is that it contains vocals; it is abstract in that they bridge the gap between producers, vocalists and musicians driving home their music with a central collaborative vision.
The first song on the track is “Breaks” as it lends itself to an ambient, relaxing sound which then seamlessly blends in an up tempo trance beat.
“Ignant”feels like an electro-operatic movement just sweeping into your ears and finding its way to your toes where dancing becomes an inevitable transaction between body and soul. This consciously focused song is telling you to relax as it has an easy techno synthesizer melody combined with simple choruses.
“The Subtle Sign” immediately steps into the fast track of synth and beat. Like most of their songs the vocals start off as organic then the synth takes over and creates a visual manipulation for the listener.
Back when world music was underground and the only way to hear it was to stay up late and tune into the local college station; it was easy to feel like you were being transported into a totally different area of consciousness. There is something so organic about WRLM’s digital earth-real sound, you don’t just hear it, you feel the beat. The body begins to control the mind as your physical body almost disconnects from the cerebrum and a reverse action takes place. The movement is tribal in every sense of the word. So let go of the mind and let the music flow through you as you listen and dance to the highly visual We Roll Like Madmen.
We want to educate you here because for so long this extremely exclusive genre has been sadly misunderstood and associated with a specific, undesirable crowd of drug and sex addicted youths. (This could still be you, we’re not judging you.) But, this is not the case with this group or many of the other up and coming bands in this genre. So now they are working their way up and into a highly visual, respectable place. Here we have it Teenagers all over America have taken over this genre using online programs where they can mix and produce their own tunes as easy as they can play video games. Rise up O’ producers, rise up.
