Electro-funky, and heavy on late 70's and early 80's synth with primitive forms of electronica and spacey ambient-retro bliss! If none of that makes sense then I am obviously at a loss for words here. I'm not sure I even know where to begin on how Stones Throw's latest signee made it on such a competitive roster of amazing hip hop talent, when he is so obviously from another planet! James Pants has mixed a collection of often familiar and definitely obscure stuff, the kind of music that comes across both cool and corny at the same time if you can even place it in a certain decade or genre. Like having a soundtrack playing while gazing at starry night skies, naming constellations, spotting meteorites and UFO's. As I struggle to come up with great Sci-Fi and B-movie references, I do stress that this is not some forced tone or theme on Ice Castles, its more like being trapped inside of an old Apple-E computer monitor, or maybe waiting in line at Space Mountain in Disney World when I was a kid. Again its a beautifully mixed audible time machine featuring Patrick Gleeson, Godiego, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Weather Report, Tonto's Exploding Head Band and much much more!
