Resurrection ( CD)
Review by: Julie Johnson
One person creates the music of Ultramax, and that is Max I Formitchev. He creates blissful electronics that have a techno feel mixed with classic touches. His music is intelligent and speaks in electronic beats. His music reminds me of a cross between Robert Miles and Moby. The songs have smooth beats that are made for dancing. "Consequential" starts out with string sounds that go from calm to more fierce sounds mixed in with techno beats but it is more focused on the classical atmosphere and fusion. With these songs you get a very Space like vibe, with such tracks as "The Call of Stars" which is has more techno beats and downbeat piano synth sounds. This song has more of a dramatic feel that goes up and down. This is one of my favorite tracks on the CD. "Fatalism" sends of a darker feel from the beginning, but kicks back up with the smooth beats and send out uncertainties to the listener. "Asteroid" sends out sort of a x-file feel and a feel of riding around in space. In this song there are a lot of fun electronic sounds. I like how the programming has this medium like tempo that just glides and bounces along. You won’t hear a lot of voice sounds into "Automatic". This song feels like a space video game, and has those video game sounds, and more on "Feel my Desire" and the next track. The album does a good job of having good techno songs, techno songs with classical touches. I believe Max has given us a good fusion of sounds along with mini adventures through space.
