Tronic: New Wave of Electronic Sounds (Tronic)


A compilation featuring artists tied to Glasgow’s show-and-tell tech club of the same name, Tronic Volume 1 is an earnest endeavour championing a host of local electronic projects, but also proving more than just a little bit dull. Opening fairly strongly, things soon tail off into the kind of numbing beats and synth loops that send the listener directly back to mid-90s bargain bins - where I imagine a number of these tunes might feel quite at home. Unquestionably exciting in the live club arena, the drag of home listening reveals either the sound’s slow progress or premature resurgence.
