DESCRIPTION: The 90th release on Suffused Music welcomes One Million Toys back to the label for his first artist EP. Sagy Amir aka One Million Toys hails from Israel and made his Suffused Music debut in June of last year with a remix of 'Cutting The Clouds' by Mark Found. The Israeli artist has found a unique place in the electronic music underground with his psychedelic designs and progressive minded sensibilities. The last calendar year has been the best on record for One Million Toys with remixes for Dave Seaman and Michael and Levan and Stiven Rivic feat. Rick Pier O'Niel being two of the highlights. One Million Toys now presents his first ever artist EP for Suffused Music entitled 'Syntax', included on the project are three brand new original productions.
The release gets underway with the appropriately titled 'Fireworks'; a mid tempo, triptastic techno creation. If you're a fan of warped, druggy design and deep engaging grooves than this is one production you're sure to love. Beginning unassumingly with a plodding groove and chugging rhythms the piece slowly evolves into a laid back, melancholic epic. It's buzzing synths and electric haze highlight a riveting climax which leaves you wanting more. The EPs second selection 'Sunrise Over Ike' builds on the wonderful cadence created by 'Fireworks'. Fueled by another highly detailed and immaculately constructed groove it grabs your attention right away. A series of hypnotic motifs carries the piece with a floaty tempo into a well crafted main break. Highlighted by wonderfully textured bell tones and an escalating emotional theme the interlude peaks with the warm rush of beats and bass that carries the track into a poignant third act. The EPs third, final and also title selection 'Syntax' is next and offers some of One Million Toys most creative ideas to date. Once again the Israeli producer's design proves to be not only quite stimulating but also incredibly groovy. The tempo and energy are markedly up here as a series of esoteric vocal hooks and trippy narratives create an otherworldly vibe over the first act. As the track strips down towards the main break a light textural haze is already building mystery and intrigue, which the shimmering, twisted and oddly emotional conclusion is all the better for. A fabulous collection of music from one of the most creative producers out there and a great release for Suffused Music who continues to impress with its ever expanding music policy.
