Review

Todd Bodine demonstrates with this EP once again extraordenary taste and skills. After a very successfull excursion on Claude van Strokes Mothership label and his activities as a heavily booked live-act and DJ he presents on „Unexpected life-form“ two brilliant tracks, that seem to burst with their energy. Todd Bodine apparently has gained a lot of experience how to bunch the impact on both the dancefloor and the musical side and how to turn the result into a wall of sound. And he‘s doing it by following his own unique style. On the A-side „Calypso“ captivates you right after a few seconds with it‘s pulsating sequences and a subtle growing energy-level from break to break. Developing a drive which won‘t miss it‘s impact on any floor. „Snakeskin“ on the flip is homogeneously build around shimmering melody-sequences which create the energy of this track, while the bassline below pulsates warm and deep. Sounds like: Detroit without kitsch. Or like a cross between Matthew Johnson, Robert Hood and Fabrice Lig. To put it in other words: a typical Todd Bodine release in the best sense. Allready a true highlight in the Highgradecatalogue in 20
