Del Wire, 01 [Nacopajaz – NCJCD02, 2005]

delwireIt’s not hard to like Del Wire’s full-length debut album “01” released on the French label amusingly named (it is to me anyhow) Nacopajaz. The album contains 14 well produced predominantly instrumental (except of the occasional vocal samples) and soothing hip hop based electronic tracks. There are also some very pleasant bass excesses incorporated on the album. Sure there’s no musical revolution lingering around the next corner, however it does most definitely not matter. The way the tracks are put together at times with very subtle references to other genres and the coolness of the whole atmosphere it’s a pleasant experience all around. The aptly named “Basicide” is the personal favourite with its ultra deep bass and heavenly strings. A solid piece of down-tempo electronics is what Del Wire and Nacopajaz offer on the “01” album.
