David Thulin "Reconstruction: Volume 2.1" by David Bunce (cmaddict.com) on 2014-01-17 15:38:28
As I mentioned about David Thulin’s previous album, Reconstruction, I enjoy the ability to discover new music and at the same time, re-enjoy music through versions of tracks that are unique and infused with energy. And that is what Thulin has managed to do again; he is quickly becoming a master of electronic re-invention.
Some new talent is featured on this album by Nichole Croteu and Shine Bright Baby. Great new remixes are included by some favorite artists: Natalie Grant, Press Play, and Rapture Ruckus.
Also, rejoining this album is Thulin’s brother Johnathan with a really great song, “Architecture”! He uses a significant amount of auto-tune, playing with and creating some interesting beats and rhythmic phrasing. This music is great to play at the gym, to wake you up in the morning, or to blast in the car.
Thulin continues to up his game, adding experience and skill as he continues to reconstruct great, uplifting music. This album is significantly shorter than Reconstruction, but it is an awesome addition. I almost see it as a great “expansion pack”, if you will, to Thulin’s ever expanding list of Reconstructions.
The energy is limitless, the musical hooks are catchy, and I continue to increasingly enjoy David Thulin’s work with every new song he reconstructs!
