Self Awakening - EP
Label: Friends of Friends
Release Date: Oct-20-2009
The Self Awakening EP, meant to be a lead-up to the full-length release Been Meaning To Tell You, gives only a glimpse of Ernest Gonzales' true potential and stirs up the appetite for the full-length feast to come.
Self Awakening, the title track, offers a fuzzy, glitchy Nintendo background to a simple, yet beautiful guitar sample. That eventually gives way to rising action and leads the song into delicious double-hitting delirium.
While only featuring two new original tracks, the rest of the release features high profile remixes. A highlight is the Mexicans with Guns remix of previously released track I'm Here You're There. What starts out as a techno inspired beat mutates into Hip Hop heaviness, providing just the right amount of glitch and wonky for any musical palate.
While Self Awakening was meant to be merely a preview, it has proven to be enough to be its own meal. 7 delicious treats are on deck for people of any musical taste.
