Emulsion vs. Hybridization ? as in a course of chemistry, let's observe the fundamentals (with a "s")
It should be admitted that, finally, the explosion of this fabulous hybridization of abstract hiphop did not have happened… a great disappointment for all those which could see in there a true opportunity for a growing old electronica. Then, depressed, heartbreaking Lex-NinjaTune-Anticon amateurs have gone away to other unknown pleasures. Anyway, here are coming good news for these, they can come back to enjoy this perfect "emulsion" between the japanese mechanical and ultra-lyrical flow of Duff and the sophisticated arrangments of its compatriot, Irie Yoshihisa (aka IRISH).
Opening on a half success track "black sun swing" (a bit too hiphop over-produced) the EP is coming on very sensitive bleep conjunction ("cell") and "desire” will certainly see breaking down any resistance. "ツツマレテク" (tsutsumareteku) confirms a kind of quintessence of the incur emulsion. Funny how "love me" is giving us the choice between pure and sentimental feelings and mmh … other love ways. The ::ID EP is closing on a "bonus beats" which have some great difficulties in hide the melodic digression of which we know, that Irish is so fond of delicacies.

A little more than one year after the brilliant "Understandings" and its very addictive track 'coma and pray', here it is the new and "pretty" release of Irish (aka Irie Yoshihisa) for the very advised netlabel TestTube -
"The pretty album", 4 pieces of childhood's reminiscence, of dreamed nostalgia, but also, and sometimes of broken toys.
'the man of dead letters' which opens the album, offers us the fragmented voice of Mississippi Sunburst on an improbable melody and a delicate building which seems quite fragile, but does not collapse.
Then, Irish invites us to leave for a rave on the Eboshi Mount, erratic and distant of last rejoicings or to come? temptation is strong to succumb to this groove spectral, but reserve is too large. The building, again, seems close to tremble.
From more traditional scheme is "Theme of Emi" which gives us to appreciate the voice of Tsurutin, whispering some soft and secret recommendations.
The album ends on, which certainly, will become one of the track the most … addictive of this spring 2006 : 'Curtain call for the man', and please take attention, cause Irish is intended there to ignite the old stories and to project them with ease with our appreciation, such an unforgettable savour impossible to circumvent.
