T IS FOR TECHNICOLOR

A one-sided release, no information, numbers for a EP title and all tracks untitled. Would it be any surprise that it sounds a bit leftfield?

The Technicolor MySpace says: “Technicolor was the one-man soundscaping company, Justin LaBo. He’s responsible for a diverse collection of downtempo, breakbeat, and techno gems. Labo’s creations have a trademark ambient quality, always underpinned by lurking, ominous bass rhythms and filtered, phased-out sounds, always in motion. This is the sound of one man and his machines in the twilight between a clear, sunny day and an all-night techno party. An XLR8R magazine review of the debut Technicolor album, One Touch Test Strip, contained this now-famous quote: “I like this album, if only for its complete lack of adherence to ‘dance music’ stylings. Purists beware, music lovers recommended.”

He is now recording as the disappointingly titled “The Jamboree”.

The featured sounds are from the cryptically entitled “70 2 140 EP” (1998), released on the wonderfully named label, Blackbean and Placenta Tape Club.
