REVIEWS

In passing and from the hip the present self-titled exhibit is unrivaled in how it merges Hip Hop, contemporary pop music, R’n’B, Electronica, Ambient and Club music (question mark, exclamation mark).
No one could have foreseen that, as a consequence of the four-dimensionality of our exsistence (attention, postulate of the author!), these three masters would so excellenty succeed in composing around a “sound-aesthetic timestamp” and seduce willing listeners into a timeless safespace of analog 180gr summer.
A striking group of selected musical co-collaborators (Tina M. Howell, Sharkula, Precise, Faregames, Ben Carter and Steven) further refine and round off the tearjearkering ode to the smoothness of reduction.
Expressive, urban verses on top of humanistic beats, timeless and direct – indeed! Incredibly entertaining, catchy, solid, highly entropic and easy-going easy – for the whole family!

“THE SHEER AMOUNT OF VITALITY COURSING THROUGH THESE TRACKS IS BONKERS. DEEPLY POLITICAL STREET POETRY SWELLS UP FROM LURCHING STATIC AND FLICKERING ORGANS. GHOST DOG-STYLE DOWNTEMPO MINIMALISM PEELS BACK TO REVEAL BEAT-WORK ALL GNARLED AND BROKEN. AND THEN THERE’S PLENTY OF MOMENTS WHERE ALL THAT SUBLIME SYNCOPATION FLAT-OUT REFUSES CATEGORIZATION. IF PART OF MUSIC’S PECULIAR MAGIC IS TO CONNECT LISTENERS TO A SENSE OF UNITY BIGGER THEMSELVES, THEN TV POW CERTAINLY ACHIEVES IT. ”
JUSTIN FARRAR

“EVOCATIVE RHYMES AND SOULFUL VOICES OVER PULSING, HUMANISTIC BEATS. OPTIMISTIC. REALISTIC. SOMNAMBULISTIC PIANOS AND HYPNOTIC BASS LINES. A DASH OF FRENETIC NEAR-FUTURISM. TIMELESS AND IMMEDIATE. FLOW AND POETRY. FEELS LIKE THE CITY. SOUNDS LIKE THE SUMMER.”
TOM DEATER

“AN ARGUMENT AGAINST THE FERMI PARADOX IS THAT WE’RE SENDING OUT, AND LISTENING FOR, THE WRONG TRANSMISSIONS. SEND OUT THE SOUNDS OF TV POW, GIVE IT ANOTHER 10 YEARS, AND THEN GET BACK TO US.”
