Valet Girls - "Lost Wrld"
I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. I imagined a lot of things. Big chunks of John Williams' score music vaporized and remixed in every way possible - but then I got a good listen of this, and I was blown away by how great this is. This is some major entertaining electronic tunes, augmented in just the right places with stray samples of dino noises and Ian Malcom quotes.
Lost Wrld kicks off with a track called Site B, that has a distinctly plunderphonic feel that is an excellent lead-in to the clever vocal sample work of Ingen Corporate Dossier and Embryonics Lab (Playing God). Each successive track introduces new sounds and plot points. I'm really digging the creativity here, and, while on the surface, this release seems like it's going to be all about the Jurassic Park films, there are some other documentary style clips and sound effects that widen the scope. The closer of the album, Something Has Survived, is especially impressive.
If you are a fan of vaporwave, and dinosaur movies, this is the release you didn't know you were waiting for. It's got all the cooky, sample-rich fun of a good vapor tape with enough originality and creative composition to really stand on its own.
