Uxo1 is a free ironical ride into space where the compositions use beats as psychedelic rails. The 22 short tracks have been mostly conceived through impro sessions with electronic tools, such as samplers, turntables, 303-synths, field recordings, and film soundtracks, which explains their spontaneous taste and DIY attitude. Heavily influenced by syntherama, dub basses, electro-funk rhythms and visionaire producers like Dabrye and Madlib, UXO music starts with an electronic mood to slowly go into more hip hop beats, ranging from the childhood memoirs of “No Return” to the current affairs of “MJ vs Neda”, a farewell to both Michael Jackson and the Iranian dead woman Neda. The Aphex Twin-esque “The Heat” walks with its thick and bodied sound, while “Iron Dandelion” is a joyfull lovesong that quickly brings the listener to the heart-warmed lovers rock echoes of “Isn’t It/Love Is In The Airhorn”. Sci-fi elements are gently spread all over the album, from the tribute to sci-fi maestro John Carpenter of “The Cheapest Space Travel” to the melancholic and nightly trip to nowhere “Faraway” through the wonky beats of “LSB”. The closer “Without You” is a magnificent electro-blues march that penetrates our deepest emotions, like the end credits music composed by Angelo Badalamenti for an imaginary movie. Uxo1 is ultimately an unexploded sonic bomb which hides an extremely variety of sounds and cosmic pleasures, ready to be discovered. To be handled carefully.
