I F***ING DID IT! I caved and bought Jenkees’ CD. It’s Matt’s fault for showing me the “56K RAP,” and then when I saw him plop the camera down and launch into some nice live electronica, it was game over.
I won’t lie… I am bummed that his YouTube electronica tracks aren’t on it.
My tastes come from a freak-blend of Trance, Grunge, and who knows what else, so for me the first track, “Derty,” is the war hammer. It crushed everything in its path – even tho I am not a “synth horn” person, the rest of the layers in that track are so wicked, I played it like 19 times in a row. Heck, I skipped logging into DDO to play it 19 times in a row while writing this!
The rest of the CD is cool – just not my style overall. He has a fabulous blend of musical elements, styles, sounds – he’s not scared to try anything and I wouldn’t be surprised if some other tracks grow on me. The “Rocky Song Remixed” and “Canon in D Remix” definitely breathed a new spin into those melodies.
“Derty” and the infamous “56K RAP” are worth the $10, but you can buy them separate for a $1 each. I would pay another $10 just to have his YouTube jams in higher quality…not even studio grade, just not YouTube grade!
