The album “Crossroads” fulfills a wish Mike Carss (aka Altus) had for years: to compose a beat-oriented album in the style as he wrote them in the 90s, but he hadn’t done so as he considered his beat programming was always lack-luster.
Well, “Crossroads” has become a fresh sounding and playful down-tempo album, which mixes well-sculptured extensive leads and string pads with deep bass lines and tickling melodies. The driving rhythms by Trx are catchy and poignant, giving body to the well-composed and attractive ten tracks that nicely push forward and swing in motion.
“Crossroads” is a nice and transparent sounding gem of down-tempo electronics with a positive current running smoothly underneath. In addition, it would fit nicely on any major label in the genre.
The album is exclusively available through the Kahvi Collective netlabel as a free download in various audio formats.
