「ORIGIN13 POLYESTER LOOPS」のレビュー
Remix誌（USA)レビュー内容（英語）Heavily slanted toward break/house/lounge titles, Polyester Loops takes a favorable foray into the world of glitches, pops, stutters and all manner of synthetic mayhem. Poland's Jerzy Korzen has produced an inspiring collection of more than 2,000 samples across two data CDs for Mac and PC that capture the essence of manmade chemical beats and synthetic musical fabric. The project contains two large folders of drum and music loops named Machinewashed and Handwashed - though stylistically indifferent - and provides 20 quirky drum kits as thread to weave them together.
Drum and percussion loops range from 70 to 180 bpm in Acidized WAV and REX2 formats. Highly inventive and often in complex signatures and break patters, they don't fit simple genres or description, lest to say that they are labor intensive - sounding edits with eclectic chillout vibe in the low tempos and an avant-trip-hop/drum 'n' bass-like vibe in the higher tempos. The music loops aren't so much traditional melodic phrases as they are evocative subterranean bass wobbles and vocal format grooves; distorted piano and melodic, ethnic, plucked-stringed instrument experimentations; synthy sequences and chaotic filtered burbles; scratched circuit noises and cuts; and otherwise deliciously distorted, squashed and effected electro-acoustic loops. The drum kits come in NNXT, HALion, Kontakt and EXS24 formats, each typically containing 40 to 80 samples. As a whole, this abstract collection is brilliant stuff for any post-modern hip hop techno, intelligent/industrial dance music or film score. Polyester Loops could also easily fit into the fold of pop to give a plain track an unidentifiable splash of depth.
