Plunge Into Teebs Collections 1 / by Randy Ortiz

This is the type of audio journey I always have in mind when releasing or thinking of experimental mixtapes (like "I Wish I Could Scuba") to release but Teebs has it on higher ground and is full of sounds and colors that warp the mind. A collection of sounds that feel like a never-ending plunge into life's and envelopes you with warm colors and mist, does it make sense? It's ok if it doesn't, just know that Teebs collection is fantastic and you will get lost if you let it. The album starts off with "Just The Yellow Bits" sounding like a chase scene which then floats up to dark deep space, it brings you back down to a urban setting with "Cook, Clean, Pay The Rent", shades of yellow and red on a summers day sprawling over the bricks and concrete. It all becomes dusty in that damp room as "Pretty Polly" plays, the beat repetition works well here as if it was a mantra digging itself into you. In "Jahara" it goes to a bokeh filled night setting while life flutters all around as people walk and converse then "Verbena Tea" bring it to a stand still as shadows dance on the wall and lifts you up with Rebekah Raff's Harp. Crystals clash and winds whip by as "Your Favorite Weekday" comes around and circles you, creating a beautiful dream-like feeling inhibiting your consciousness. "LSP" cleanses and calms the mind with a low drum beat making everything ok, bringing "While You Dooooo" samba rhythms as the sun rises again. It all seems to go according to plan when "Red Curbs Loop" assures you the night went well as the crackle plays throughout, to top the experience off "Yellow More New" closes your journey into the mind and art of Teebs.

Listen to "Pretty Polly" [audio:T-PP.mp3]

I enjoyed this album immensely and can't wait to hear what the Brainfeeder artist has coming up. This isn't another collection of sounds that you can just easily slap a price to, but yes it is worth 100% the price of admission so cop ASAP!
