Teebs “Bern Rhythm [Codeine Version]“ from The Qualities of Light on Vimeo.

A life changing gallery of sound exemplifying a macrocosm of brilliance and tranquility arises from the uniquely colorful depths of Ardour. Teebs, a Los Angeles based producer hailing from Flying Lotus’ celebrated imprint Brainfeeder, manifests a timeless masterpiece teeming with emotion and character forged from life’s indiscriminate challenges.

Having experienced the loss of his primary income source as well as the loss of his father during production made it a difficult project. to complete. Nevertheless, it seems as if his love for music remained an indestructible source of strength for the young 23 year old producer, allowing him to follow through to completion. His fans can now breath a sigh of relief as its release date quickly approaches (October 19, 2010).

Negative experiences seemingly lead to positive ones. Having to move into the same apartment complex as Flying Lotus and rooming with fellow label mate Samiyam to appease the economic impact of losing a job created a perfectly balanced musical environment for the artist. The deep emotional content found in the album also draws from the burden of losing a father, granting listeners an intimate look into the artists life.

The album begins with a track entitled You’ve Changed. A sleepy background sample loop establishes a strong foundation. You can hear a bit of that Flying Lotus influence as the drums come in strong, yet the subtlety is reminiscent of a peaceful morning sunrise breaking through the darkness.

Teebs has a knack for building layers and just as easily takes them away. The track inhales and exhales, mimicking that of a living breathing entity. Double Fifths sets things off with a beautifully effected piano loop dancing around sophisticated beat loops. Atmospheric sounds reach far into the background as hard limited drum beats take a commanding stance, a common element found throughout the album.

Arthur’s Birds is a unique transfusion of various audible elements. Pumping compression effects lock you in a constant state of alertness. A blissful array of effected samples create a melodic road map. Gordon, carrying more of the same elements as the previous tracks seems to completely open up. The minimalist drum pattern produces a spacious environment that one can easily add to. For me, it becomes the perfect hand drumming song.

Visual overviews can easily be provided for all eighteen track. Teebs having started out as a visual artist plays a vital part in this occurrence although I doubt that anyone would have the time to read through a fifty page album review. Possessing an equal proportion of talent in both the audible and visual fields is a dangerous combination.

His music tends to evoke richly detailed visual imagery from the deep recesses of one’s imagination. Look out for Teebs in 2010 because this is only just the beginning. [ By Conrad Magabo ]
