New Jersey’s Stape Mega delivers ‘Metrica Mega’ an LP on Cold Busted with mechanical zeal, Electronic, Downtempo and Hip Hop beats and styles crafted with robotic celebration. Catching my ear immediately was ‘Mechanica’ a short piece with intriguing samples, pulsing game boy sounds, and dark beats. ‘Automation Nation’ follows a pleasingly languid tune with waning guitars, Lo-fi crackles, rubbery hip beats and a Goth tinged singer crooning. ‘Dynamics’ comes fresh and immediate, a tune with a spicy melody and lively bassline at about 92BPM, with dope breaks, solid snares and staccatos. Another vignette, ‘Water Clock’ is a bleeped out Downtempo tune at 72 BPM with an eerie dark synth, beats with brushed on hi hats and intoxicating subtle deep bass notes. The sheer multifaceted, electronic goodness of this album will keep you listening, an experimental and underground genre bending, and enticing piece of work from Stape Mega.
