33Hz – 33Hz
Website: Outlook Music
Judging by the simplistic cover art, there was an expectation of something guitar driven and acceptable by the general public.
Good job throwing us off guys.
What we get instead is a 70’s disco/funk/electro-pop feel with lyrics to match; written with a revised digital syntax. 13 tracks littered with deep grooves and bass for klubheads and a potential goldmine for remixers who love to sample the classics. The vocal stylings of Luther Vandross (RIP) meets Barry Gibb meets George Michael meets Tony Toni Tone meets Prince. Just for good measure, a sprinkling of neo-soul is tossed into the mix.
It’s rumored that 33 Hertz is the optimal frequency of bass needed to make women spontaneously orgasm.
Did anyone else flashback to that awe inspiring scene in Howard Sterns’ Private Parts?
Despite these claims, this album doesn’t have what it takes to start a sexual revolution. Like the disco/funk era, this album gets very monotonous and repetitive. It does make for a good background soundtrack to the late night party outing.
