Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
Earlier this year Chez Marrone surprised us with his debut EP 'A Week Off', which received exceptional feedback from musicians and music enthusiasts. Bill, Founder of Arena-Underground.com, describes it as "the 'Fight Club' soundtrack by the Dust Brothers and add the organic element of acoustic drums. It's a very balanced blend of electronica and use of live instruments".
Chez has reclaimed the true feeling of soul and emotion solely through organic sounds. This album is a mixture of Marrone's influences, such as Massive Attack, Portishead, Pink Floyd, Unkle and DJ Shadow. The founder of Arena-Underground.com describes 'Change' as a "unique blend of trip-hop, rock, funk and electronica (that) breaks away from the cookie cutter mold so often found in the mainstream today". The structure and pacing assist in creating the ultimate goal of this record, which is to have the listener build a story through their own creative imagination.
These 10 songs sonically travel to different emotional states to the beat of relentless drums. 'Restart' sets the path for the journey. Keyboards, bass, and drums create a 'weight of the world' feeling and there is definite apprehension for what is to come. The song cleverly transitions about midway from a sense of apprehension to a sense of urgency. 'Haunting' is mysterious, moody, and dark. It produces a futuristic feel that continually marches forward like being pulled by something that is out of one's control. 'Mindbender' is a freight train of drums with ambient undertones. 'The Reaper' feels like the sadness for reaching the end of a journey and the pride for having made it. 'Hyrule' is melancholic piano mixed with ethereal Gregorian chants, all of which are mixed with bold break beats.
"I believe, as a drummer, an essence was captured that I've never heard before. Attention to detail was essential in creating the overall album, giving it a purpose to exist. My appreciation for raw & authentic live drum recording has been a huge inspiration for 'Change'. The goal was to re-capture, or expand, the sound of classic drum recording. It's about 'feeling' the love and soul about music, as it connects people emotionally through sounds & imagination" Says Chez.
