Review:
In case you didn't know this about me, I am from Canada, more specifically I am from Toronto. If there is one thing Toronto is known for within the party community it is the North American capital of Drum and Bass. We bleed those sexy basslines, there is without a doubt something sinful that comes along with Drum and Bass and it's various offshoots.

Today, I bring to you a review of a new digital release by YmB called the Hypnotherapy EP. The album contains 3 tracks, Hypnotherapy, The Beginning (2011 VIP) and Pessa Pessa. So lets get you ears moving and your eyes reading as we enter into the world of Drum and Bass.

Hypnotherapy
Adamantly there is something very unique with the sounds at the beginning, it comes on very strong. A symposium of rhythmic snares, kicks and claps make for an interesting if not unconventional sound of drum and bass. In fact, you can almost say that with the variation of the track it comes off as almost sounding like hardcore track. This in itself can be both an blessing and sin. What makes Drum and Bass unique is the way the bass rolls and makes your body loosen with undivided attention so you can brock out with your cocks out. Hypnotherapy fails to deliver this, the transitions between the changes sound like an air raid horn and nothing more, the basslines sound like they are pushing air and you have no feeling involved within the track because the break take over more so. Now please don't take this the wrong way, anyone may enjoy this track, however when you come from a place like I do, Drum and Bass is truly artistic snobbery in this sense. I don't agree with having the overlaying breaks drown out the bassline, when their should be an equalization between them both and a harmony that speaks to all listeners. This track does not speak to me, and for the title track of the EP I expected more.

The Beginning (2011 VIP)
Do you know why VIP tracks are called VIP tracks? It is because they normally rock the fuck out. If you are familiar with Hardcore at all, especially the Artist Ophidean he did a track called Butterfly VIP which is one of the most beautifully written Hardcore tracks I can think of. The Beginning (2011 VIP) speaks highly of YmB's talent. While I will never compare track vs track production wise, as every track is unique in it's own way, if we are to get a general consensus of the goings on with the Hypnotherapy EP then we should take a look at an Orange vs an Orange one orange is beautiful has a seductive element that says listen to my bass roll and drop your bodies like they are hot. While the other says hi guys I'm over here come talk to me...who are going to listen too? Clearly you want to be with the seductive track, the one that says I am here to rock you out, grab your guys, grab your girls and grind on the dance floor with me. This is the sound a proper VIP track, and this track is defiantly proper, from its introduction to its execution.

Pessa Pessa
Finally we reach the end of this album with Pessa Pessa, this track starts out like an old school Vinyl Syndicate (http://www.discogs.com/artist/Vinyl+Syndicate) track it has steep builds and a culmination of Amen breaks, as though it they were tossed in a blender and set to chop the fuck up. While I am not sure what Pessa Pessa means, I am going to assume that it is Italian considering the sample of this track is from a early rave album called Pessa Pessa by Masoko Solo on the Absolute Joy album 008 from 1994. The thing is with remixes and I am going to call this a cross genre remix due to the fact that it is called the same name as the old school track and uses the sample vocal from the original. Now I have heard many remixes of Pessa Pessa, The Prophet, Buzzfuzz, hell even the album release had 3 remixes of it back in 1994. What makes music from back then different today is that our production tools have changed and we want more of a grimy sound with our music, especially our remixes, we want them to be separated from the original yet still adhering to the quality of the original, it really is a catch .22 when you think about it. As an artist when you attempt this, you can either be commended or condoned for your actions. Well my final verdict is this, Pessa Pessa has elements of the original, as well as it adheres to the unique sound of YmB's cultivation for a song. When you have something like this it is easy to say it sucks, or it something negative because people more inherently love originals over remixes. I am not one of those people, I take a song as I see it, and I will either hate it or love it.
YmB presents a fantastic song that really speaks out to today’s crowds with wanting an edgier sound.

I have listened to a lot of music in my life, in fact we hear it everyday, whether it be the sounds of construction or a bird whistling its tune. Music is everywhere, and sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad and sometime you get a nice combination of both. The Hypnotherapy EP gives you both, many albums in fact give you both the good and the bad. When I first heard the opening track, I thought my god this fucking sucks, but I am an opinionated asshole when it comes to music. That is why I write reviews, and do articles for various websites. People want to read the good and the bad before making an investment of their into something. That is why reviewers exist, and yes you will not always agree with me, and people will say something that offends someone else. But the value of an opinion is sometimes worth its weight.

This album really does deserve someone to sit down and listen to it, if not for me, then for yourself. Quality can be argued over a persons personal taste. Myself you will never ever hear me listening to Noize, or anything remotely that obscure. Because it isn't my thing. Drum and Bass along with Hardcore are my things, and I tend to pick apart things I enjoy or want others to enjoy. I am going to give this album a 50/50 split down the middle of 2.5 out of 5 – I feel the production quality of the opening track could have been better, the general feeling of the album is all over the place. It's nothing special, but it does have charm and characteristics some may enjoy. My advice to YmB is mix it up more and draw upon your own musical influences more and really listen to the formula that Drum and Bass is. Don't drown it out with overtones, when it is the bass line that keeps us coming back for more.
