CD Reviews

Hardfloor has once again created a whole new genre of music
07/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hardfloor, once known for their hard acid-laden trance has once again upped the ante in electronic music while redefining the genre. Oliver and Ramon have gathered all the styles that they have mastered and fused them to make "Electric Crate Digger-" which is quite possibly their best effort to date.At first, "Electric Crate Digger" sounds a lot like one of Mooshine Music's "Acid Jazz Test-" CD compilations, but upon closer inspection, Da Damn Phreak Noize Funk brings together much more than can be pigeon-holed into a single style. This music is the culmination of Hardfloor's signature acid bass lines fused with funk, jazz, old-skool hip-hop, and industrial- but with a positive up-beat yet amazingly smooth and laid-back feel.Wah pedals, slap bass, flute trills and sizzling hi-hats are but a sample of the instruments used. "Da Damn.." has the uncanny ability to fuse these with electronic drums, synthesizers, record-scratching, and, of course, the heavy 303 injection which is their trademark. Each song doesn't end without a break, a cut, or a slice of pure Hardfloor lovin' 303 acid bouncing and breathing like a living beast within the music. If you're not familiar with it-- you'll just have to hear it to fully understand.There really is no comparing Da Damn Phreak Noize Phunk to any big names in the music industry. This album is truly unique triumph into undiscovered territory."
At their most accessible.

"It is profoundly pleasing when an artist accomplishes the nearly insurmountable task of reaching out to the masses while staying true to his/her/their roots. While I've often heard Hardfloor criticized as being "too repetitive" and "just a lot of beeps," their extensive incorporation of real instruments (the sounds & samples thereof) ought to have made many a new believer. A shame this is so hard to find even if one can remember their phunked-out (but none too enticing) pseudonym. Unless you ONLY like their wall-thumping robot-breaking-building music, this album cannot disappoint. A bit too short, though. Favorite track: Dynamite Derby."
Impressive

"This is a very well composed set of predominantly jazz and funk flavours which are blended together to form an easy-going and supremely relaxing head trip. There's enough going on, however - including some energetic vocal samples on dazzafact - to keep things interesting and get you bouncing out of your arm chair. Highly recommended for those of a more mellow and distinguished mindfulness."
