'The End Of It All' kicks off with a throbbing melody, the precursor to the beats and bass line. The overall arrangement is clean and tight with chords underpinning a soft and cosmic melody. This is a real after hours number that grooves along but is neither overly clever nor complex with squelchy, sinful but organic samples. Towards the 4-minute mark the swinging chords build and arouse the listener with the melody warping and punching in and out.
'Forced Fiction' is a bit more Detroit inspired, with short shakers, a slightly more aggressive melody and simple samples and bleeps which carry the track along. Things get interesting around the 3-minute mark when constructed warbles begin piercing the sound system and the number really peaks.
Overall this latest release from John Tejada is a tight two-track EP which again illustrates a sound purveying modernity, twisted with sonic chords of serotonin.
