As always, putting a label on the music of Hectopascal is really hard, and this release is not an exception. With the Pixies and Pixels EP, Hectopascal is going all the way from beautiful and playful nature scenarios to computer game ninja music and groovy hip hop textures.
This release should give you a clear vision of what we are about as a label; sounds that pushes the boundaries.
Dance, laugh or just chill out, this is music free from care! It will always find the way straight thru your flesh and bone, finding your soul.
1. ONE BIT WONDER
Gliding pads and thundering drum’n’bass beats fit together in this sparkling computer game psychosis.
Sentimental and furious at the same time, this track’s nothing but pure hardcore mind candy.
2. ELAKA DJUR
Stripping the music down to its barest of essentials, Hectopascal is teaming up with the mean street mob to create “Elaka Djur”, an instant groover with hip hop roots.
Sliding in with a fistful of twiddly tricks, this track is bound to get everyone’s attention with its heavy hitting beats, warm thick killer bass and epic addictive chorus.
3. BUMP SET SPIKE
Lush and epic, the bump set spike takes us to a land where pixies and trolls are marching on tiny bridges while small fairies are looking for magical berries and bits and pieces for their mushroom houses.
It’s a happy land, but don’t get lost… in the woods there is an evil witch lurking!
4. LAST COMPUTER GAME NINJA
Prepare for the computer game ninja’s last fight! A sonic war where the classical chip chords and c64-leads are desperately fighting against raging turbo-beats in a final battle for honour.
Watch out for 8-bit shurikens, resonant war cries and exploding fists…
5. KRÅNGEL O KNASTER
Infected by a low-tech virus, this track starts of in the scattered remnants of the battlefield, where both the ninja and every drop of the turbo fuel is long gone.
Broken shredded grooves and wrecked effects are accompanied by a melancholic anthem, slowly rising from the ashes.
6. BUMP SET SPIKE (PSILODUMP REMIX)
While the original bump set spike takes us to the land of the happy trolls, Psilodump is taking us to a far future (with traktor beams and laser hot dogs).
In this sci-fi saga you’ll find epic melodies, dance beats and true heroes with special powers.
