[proc375] has already come and gone, and
as we say goodbye to such a great compilation, I can
only feel happier as I turn my attention to [proc376], an
album from a long-time net-friend and fellow netlabel
operator, Pollux.

Hailing from the great country of France, Pollux has
been working deep within the underground music community
for many years now and has amassed a
nice collection of albums, both full lengths and EP's,
ranging from ambient to the
darkest hardcore techno around,
and found on such reputable
and respectable labels like
Dustin Must Die, Pavillon36, Microbit Records,
TFN, End Of Music,
Amduscias Records, Intox,
his own label Creative Obsession, and
yes...even proc-records!

This album consists of nearly two-dozen
hand-selected tracks by Pollux which have been
released at the various netlabels
during the two-year period of 2008 and 2009.
He has chosen these particular pieces as his
personal best creations, demonstrating the
peak of his young yet active career as an undergound
artist, and I am in no position whatsoever to
disagree!
He is certainly an artist who I thoroughly enjoy
listening to when I can, and am proud to have worked
with him in the past, presently and hopefully
for many more years to come.

His material is always heavily emotional,
personal and above all, admirable.
Any of his albums from the past are sure to please,
however, might i recommend saving yourself
some time by simply downloading this ;)


keeping the underground happy and healthy is what
I strive to do at proc-records, and having artists like
Pollux in our roster makes my goal much easier to obtain

brief notes for great music :D

over the years, proc has been fortunate enough
to have been involved with the careers of
many successfull dedicated artists deeeeeep within
the underground. It has been a wonderful
and tremendously rewarding part of my life, not to mention
a way to really connect and STAY connected with
the musical direction within the netlabel scene
(the truest place to score the best music around!)

this compilation comprises a total of ten tracks from
just a HANDFULL of the artists at proc, both local and global, who
have been not only a positive influence on my own life
and musical career,but who also truly and
whole-heartedly embody the sound and values of
sound ARTists.

no genre restrictions or length limits.
just pure, raw electronic music
in a crystal clear 320kbps.

demonstrating TRUE underground-ness is what
I hope to achieve at proc and have
been incredably pleased thus far, primarily due
to extreme "out there" artists like Army Of 2600.
For a little bit of background, check out his other
releases with proc or other fine labels like Love Torture .

In the meantime, let's talk about this
album because, well, it's just so damned awesome!
From the very first second, this album is true
distortion brutality.
Opening the ep is the track "oshe time"
which is very much glitch-hop, ghetto-chip
and all around cool track, laiden with deep grinding bass,
interesting beat sequences and a pleasent
melodic lead.

immediately after this piece comes
a personal favorite track of mine from the album,
channel 59 mega mix which draws many styles into
its destructive and very appealing percussion-path which
mostly include hardcore jungle and even harder techno
(in 8-bit style of course *wink*)

after this we are lead deeply into the depths of
unknown motherboard territory, annexed off by
those that fear such distinguishable sounds as this.
Once again, the heavy distortion (which plays a lovely
common theme throughout the life of the album) can
be heard spread very thick over basslines and
kicks, snares, high-hats and claps.
a killer track and certainly one of
particular interest to me.
However, the album reaches it's paramount with
the fifth track, "dr mindbender in the lab", which
leaves little room for discussion, due to the highly
descriptive title of the piece.

As with every AO2600 album I've heard, he always trails
off the release with a wonderful closing track, maintaining
our thoughts an interest once again and leaving us
left to patiently await the arrival of his next epic performance.
with this guy, you can always expect the most premium
analog-rich 8-bit chiptune sounds around, and proc
has been proud to release as many musical
ventures of his as possible.
without further ado, it gives me incredable
pleasure to release....
