I find it fitting that this album starts with a clip of a voice saying “you’re gonna love this” – as I really did. This is the first material I’ve heard from the Philly electronic artist, and I was dazzled by Eternal 2 even on the first listen.
I also find it refreshing when Americans take inspiration from the British, and most of what we find here is undoubtedly emulating the innovative UK jungle and breakbeat scene of the 90s. If you’re under 40 years of age and not from the UK, there’s very little chance you’re going to be able to feel nostalgia for it, but I’d still take a punt on this.
Eternal 2 can be found on V I R T U A 9 4’s bandcamp for you dip your toes into.
