Patrick Sexx = The Chemical Brothers + Tweaker

Patrick Sexx created an album that sounds like a coloring book from an alternate reality. The title track has a slow synth accompanied by an upbeat chorus of backing vocals, which create a friendly atmosphere that sounds like a waking dream.

Sparking, wire-like sounds and stuttered vocal samples carry throughout this album, giving it a flow from one song to the next. This album is very different than what you would expect—yet, regardless of the expectations, you will be pleasantly surprised by what you hear. I would recommend it if you are a fan of experimental electronica. –Seeth McGavien
