Bruce Smear's Chlorine is meticulous, liquid bass music. Compositionally smooth and precise, it mixes classic bass and New Jack Swing (Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Seal, Prodigy, etc.) with a hyperreal, futurist sheen, allowing for moments of pure body-music bliss as well as textural electronic abstraction.
I haven't heard anything like this album. Somehow it feels like a perfect description of the disconnected/hyper-connected place society finds itself in, I like that there is an ambiguousness about this work; it's not clear if artifical intelligences are here to help us or destroy us. Ferraro allows the listener space to think for themselves in his own distinctive vision. I paint while listening to this album, I find it creatively very inspiring. David Hilliard
